Rental description

Located in the southern Ardèche, this single-storey detached house faces south and classifies as particularly sustainable and environmentally friendly accommodation. You will have a private plot facing the forest with garden furniture, hammock, sunbeds and barbecue and will be welcomed by the owners Christope and Dagmar.
The lodging has a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a large Italian shower, washbasin and washing machine, dry toilets and two bedrooms: one with a 160×200 bed and the other with 2 80×200 beds that can be pushed together to a 160×200. The ecological, high quality bedding is made of wool according to local tradition.
The cottage is suitable to accommodate babies and provides: a high chair, cot, bathtub, changing table and games are at your disposal.

Sustainability criteria

Christophe and Dagmar will be happy to share with you tips to help you discover the region and chat about their eco-construction project over a drink. Environmental criteria and habitat ecology were a priority during construction. It is made of a timber frame and bales of straw. Inside, the presence of natural materials such as wood and earth coatings, cork and cellulose wadding ensure well-being and comfort in summer and winter. The cottage gets its energy from solar panels which it uses to produce hot water. Waterless and odourless dry toilets save a lot of water. Sanitation is carried out by phyto-purification. A 9kwc photovoltaic installation located on the roof of the owner’s house, which is currently under construction, produces electricity. In fact, it produces more energy than it requires, therefore making it a positive energy site. A charging station for electric vehicles is provided free of charge for guests.
