Rental description

Alain and Nicole offer you a unique holiday in their carton house in the small village of Borvran! The rooms, double and twin, are all a spacious 30m². You can request a baby cott if your baby will be accompanying you as well as a children’s bed. For an equally unforgettable holiday, rooms may be booked together with the treehouse in their fenced garden, where you will spend your time without electricity, water and heating (give it a shot!). Bathrooms will be shared with those staying in the house.

Their delicious breakfast consists of local and organic produce, some of which are homemade. Even the breakfast crockery is handmade by a ceramist from the island.

Sustainability criteria

Alain and Nicole have created this original eco-friendly lodging project, in which cardboard scrap is recycled for the construction of the house and its furniture. The accommodation strives to reach the standards of a passive house, where a markedly low level of energy consumption that results from high natural insulation and low energy lighting among other measures is maintained (a true passive house leaves no carbon footprint on its environment. Your passionate hosts try to get as close to that standard as they can). Consequently, all fabric and cleaning products come from ecolabelled businesses.

Biodegrable waste is fed to a compost and the gardening is carried out without pesticides.

The lodging is located on Belle-Île-en-Mer (pretty island), the biggest island off the coast of Brittany. The name itself gives away what landscapes are in store for you. It has been a source of inspiration for many painters that have come and gone. Not to miss are its picturesque villages and lighthouses, the latter of which you could mount for sightseeing.
