Rental description

Enjoy an unspoiled mid-mountain valley near Lourdes and relax. David, a mountain rescuer, is a nature lover and leads a sustainable lifestyle with his family.

He invites you in his 100 % ecological “ecolodge” which he built with his hands during 10 years.

You will feel at home, in complete autonomy, in this modern house equipped to welcome a small family or a group of friends. In addition to the living room and its wood stove, the equipped American kitchen, you have 2 bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and wifi.

The large garden of 3000 m2, the barbecue as well as the large wooden terrace of 60 m2 with view on the mountain are at your disposal.

You will love the quiet location, at the foot of hiking trails or mountain bike circuits.

Guests who are allergic to waves or chemicals will feel good in this place, which is also conducive to digital detox!

A garage is at your disposal because a personal vehicle is strongly recommended to reach the rather isolated hamlet and to do your shopping.

Sustainability criteria

The house was designed from the start to minimize its carbon footprint and to take advantage of the principles of bioclimatic architecture: airlocks, orientations, openness, global design around the heating point, buffer zones, etc…

For his construction, David used only noble, local and non-polluting materials :

- cork and wood wool insulation
- straw walls
- earthen interior walls
- lime paint
- wood structure
- local slate roofing
- floors : terracotta and wood tiles
- one 6 kw stove for the whole house
- low consumption wooden windows and bay windows
- insulation underneath in cork
- marble kitchen worktop

The family also decided to avoid water and energy consuming equipment such as air conditioning or a swimming pool.

The house is perfectly healthy and is ideal for tenants who are allergic to waves or chemical products.

Hiking activities in the mountains are accessible from the house, especially since the Pyrenees National Park is nearby.
