Brin de bois history

Worried about sustainability and our environment, we built a bioclimatic, warm and welcoming house, in which we live in happiness.

The brin de bois holiday cottage is built on the same ecological principles as the house (timber structure, efficient insulation, natural materials) and we are convinced that you will enjoy your time there. We love wood and the wood craftsmanship: it is what inspired us for the internal atmosphere and the decoration.
