Rental description

Welcome at Sophie and Ronan’s! The guesthouse is located in an old building whose foundation dates back to the 11th century (1068). It is located in a very calm place, so that you will truly enjoy the 5-hectare garden with its natural pond and LPO (League for the Protection of Birds) bird shelter.

There are two rooms on the ground floor, each one offering a nice double bed, shower and toilets, but also a private garden, a living room with a TV, a refrigerator, a micro-oven, board games and books, tea and coffee, etc. Sophie and Ronan renovated the rooms themselves with eco friendly materials using traditional methods.

Your host will be happy to offer you an organic breakfast prepared from local produce at the time and place you want (garden, terrace or bedroom). Enjoy your stay!

Sophie and Ronan also rent out holiday cottages.

Sustainability criteria

Ecology is at the heart of Sophie and Ronan’s daily life.

They renovated their house with eco friendly materials, spare water and electricity (water-efficient taps, low-energy bulbs) and use homemade, old-fashion cleaning products.

Selective sorting, organic breakfast and avoiding individual packaging are some of the additional eco friendly measures they take. During your stay, your towels and bed sheets will also be changed only when you ask for it – no need to change them every day, and it saves water and electricity.

The garden is maintained with collected rainwater free of pesticides. Their gardening efforts has made it into a bird sanctuary. Depending on the season, you might have the chance to enjoy delicious home-grown fruits for breakfast!
