Notre Charte environnementale


Renaud and his 3 cats (Hera, Zeus and Poros) warmly welcome you to their country house, now a socio-cultural centre. Come and recharge your batteries, relax in the house around an open fire, read, play cards or board games to the sound of music, or watch a cartoon or film in the shed with its blanket. Take your mind off things by discussing everything and anything in a cheerful and relaxed atmosphere, or sit in a quiet corner of the garden and contemplate the magnificent starry sky in winter. In short, a change of scenery in a place where nature, animals and, of course, people are respected after 25 years working in social housing.

Bakery

Guest room
3 persons
1 bedroom
18  m2

In spring and summer, the swallows and their young are present in the cellars, including the bakery, where there has been an active nest for decades. Don't be surprised if there is a bucket under the nest for their natural needs.

This troglodytic cellar, known as the "bakery", contains :
- a bread oven + fireplace,
- a double bed with a new mattress and base + a cot,
- a wardrobe,
- 2 dressing tables,
- a chamber pot,
- a coffee table with cushions.

Authentic, rustic comfort (dressing table and chamber pot to avoid having to use the bathroom and toilet in the house or outside) and unusual.

You can light the fireplace/bread oven to warm up a bit, although the temperature rarely drops below 10°C (even at the moment, without heating, when it's 4°C outside).

Bergerie

Guest room
2 persons
1 bedroom
15  m2

This troglodytic cellar, formerly a sheepfold, features :
- a new, comfortable double bed on a pallet,
- a small desk
- a dressing table with a jug and hairdressing basin, a bedroom urinal and chamber pot,
- old rabbit hutches,
- a wooden rack to decorate the bed.
- a small piece of furniture to store your personal belongings + a change of sheets and extra blankets.

As it was a sheepfold, the floor is made of clay and the floor tiles have not yet been installed, as some guests have told me that they have appreciated the clay floor and others have preferred to have floor tiles, so I'm still thinking about it.

The door used to have a mesh screen, but a new one has been installed to keep the authentic look, with the addition of an opaque curtain for privacy. One opening is currently covered by a mesh screen, also with a curtain, while we wait to create a made-to-measure window.

The temperature rarely falls below 10°C (even at the moment without heating, when it's 4°C outside), the stove can be lit before you arrive to bring up the temperature and large warm blankets are waiting for you.
