The spirit here, Lionel got a taste of it from birth and I joined him in his environment. He shapes us and we bring him who we are. It shapes our children who grow up every day in a preserved space.
Share our values....
We want to be attentive to the smooth running of your stay, make you taste the apple juice from here, walnut kernels ....listen to everyone's stories with ease, explain the territory, share a vegetable from the garden, picking fruit, all the values committed to sustainable rural development. Values recognized and associated with the Chartreuse Natural Park's Home Brand.
Why not explain how renewable energy works to you.
Dare to innovate …

- With 25 m² of solar panels as soon as 1997
- By installing a kitchen corner in each room so as to allow access for the majority of budgets

Passioned by Human Beings …
Parents of Mathias (2005) and Clémence (2008), we are committed to accompanying them to who they are and will become.
Humans touch us with their potential, their diversity, their wonders, their complexities.
We try to be careful that everyone can be welcomed as fairly as they can.
We also take a clear look at our environment. Small gestures, important things are born, and everyone has to bring his little drop of water.... That's the message of the "Colibri."
Clemence and our Mare Comtoise Coquette.

Creating is to express one self …
And I love it !
A lot of fun was taken to develop the layout and decoration of the rooms and cottages.
The colors were inspired by those of the rural environment in which we live, to make the shades and give the names to the rooms and cottages
Make this place live …
The spirit here is Life and its movements. This house has always been lived in and the fields cultivated and we are happy that it's still like that… that the house is still useful, that the shadow of the fruit trees sooth those who take a snooze, that the orchard be also a place to play, to read, to admire la Grande Sure, to eat in the open air …
And then in June 2013, with the "Art in Gardens" show, I at last had the chance to welcome artisits, and what a pleasure! To be repeated !
Working in a Network is essential …
Since we live in St Aupre, we have been actively involved in several tourist development structures/label (Chartreuse Park, the Voironnais country, ...). In this territory, colored with all family history, it is essential to move forward together and we want to be actors of reflections, of progress, of projects, in collaboration. We are also involved in the life of the village and in the various events that are organized there.
Keeping the Authenticity
of this human and real estate heritage is important to us, and are careful to make it coexist as much as possible with the country environment teeming with life.
To carry out this project in this spirit, intensive work was required and lasted 18 months.
