Minimalist, self-sufficient and immersed in their environment, our eco-responsible tiny houses can accommodate families, friends and couples, and have everything you need for a moment of escape.

What's more? Still unique in France, our eco-friendly cottages are the only ones to be 100% self-sufficient, relying on water and the sun. Solar panels installed on the roof allow you to enjoy your micro-home like a traditional dwelling, and rainwater harvesting is enough for a typical inhabitant's consumption. For the more curious, the water comes from the rain when a connection is not possible. It is filtered before reaching the Tiny House tap or shower. However, it's not drinkable everywhere, so be sure to check on site, as a small label indicates whether you can drink it. In any case, and in the interests of conserving resources, a shower should not last longer than 3 minutes!

For travelers in search of freedom or people looking for comfortable accommodation in the middle of nature, there's no doubt about it: the Tiny House is the ideal accommodation.
