Made of wood and stone, with solar shower and composting toilet, this is a cozy rural getaway, an invigorating walk from town 8mn and from the lakeside 15mn. A place to turn off the gizmos and get back in touch with the basics. Welcome!

House Rules

Pets are welcome so long as they dont massacre the garden. Children are welcome but small ones need to be briefed very well on the precautions required for accident-free cliffside dwelling, at least until the raspberry bushes grow a little bushier. Smoking please just outside. We try to minimise non biodegradable solid waste where possible. We are focussed with open flames (candles, stove) as this is a mostly wooden house. If you break anything, please repair or replace it.

Response from Tony:
You are very welcome, Jesse, and thank you for helping out with the raspberries. Once they make it to May we're golden, it-s just these few dry and dusty months we need to get through. You'll love the place during the rainy season.
