Rental description

Welcome to Francoise’s country cottage or gîte in French, in a haven of greenery surrounded by horses! The guest rooms adjoining her dwelling house occupy half of the former farmhouse. With a capacity for 4 to 5 people, the house has been restored entirely with ecological materials and tastefully furnished to make you feel at home.

The ground floor consists of a large living room warmed up by a central heat stove, a small kitchen equipped for light meals, a small bathroom and dry toilets. Using dry toilets can be a bit disorienting at first, but you get used to it!

Breakfast is a pleasant experience, enjoyed among the daisies in the garden with the sunrise in the backdrop. Late afternoon sunshine can be enjoyed on the grassy terrace.

A curved path separates the small gîte from the big one, so they can both be rented at the same time for parties of 14 people.

Sustainability criteria

Francoise is committed to a respect for plants, minerals, animals and people. The estate is surrounded by an ecological garden and maintained using organic material.

The gîte has been restored in a 100% ecological way: insulation consists of cellulose wadding and the walls are lined with hemp lime and straw. The roofing consists are made up of larch shingles while the flooring and mezzanine consists of Douglas fir, parquetry and slate. Sanitary facilities include a tadelakt shower, dry toilets,

Solar panels provide hot water. Rainwater is collected for the horses and the garden. Francoise uses organic cleaning products and requires guests to separate waste.

She also practises phyto-purification for filtering water, which she uses for feeding the horses and gardenning. She combines this practice with geobiology, a method for detecting and treating harmful elements. Francoise will be happy to give you more details on site if you are curious.
