Overview of the project
This is an eco-design and eco-construction project that created 4 wooden chalets that all come from organic sources and that all have a bioclimatic design. In order to create and maintain this eco-accommodation, only renewable energy is used to power the chalets.
The energies that power the chalets are:
- photovoltaic energy
- geothermal energy
- solar boilers
- ground-couples heat exchanger
- solar shower for the pool (28°C minimum from May to November)
- rain water used for WC
- reusing glass bottles (circular economy)
- installing 6 recharging stations (collaboration with Tesla)
Also, all chalets are accessible for people with disabilities.
To offer a paradisiac holiday spot in harmony with nature and the environment.
June 2009 - June 2012
The Photovoltaic energy produced thanks to one installation on one of the roofs of the chalets provides the equivalent of 80% of just the electricity energy consumption.
No waste after construction. Only clean energy is used (no gas, fuel nor wood).
50% loans, 32% public financial assistance, 18% self-financing
Sustainable tourism initiative in France.
The organisation offers touristic accommodation with free management (35 beds) in 4 different chalets.
The gites use only the Natural energy surrounding them to function (the Sun, water, the heat from the ground…) and are a real example of how it’s possible to benefit from these natural resources in a sustainable way.
