Responsible tourism: France luxury eco accommodation, Saint Martin Laguepie


Les Chênes is a selfbuilt and designed wood house by the owner with the primary objective being to create an environmentally-friendly, low-consumption, low-emission, comfortable family home.

It provides the perfect vacation destination for people who love luxury whilst playing their part in caring for the environment.

It benefits from six solar panels on the roof of the house which provide all of the hot water in the house, including that used in appliances, bathrooms, swimming pool, and underfloor heating (combination between solar panel and wood/pellets fireplace).

It is double-glazed throughout, superbly insulated, and the huge glazed frontage allows the sunlight to warm every room, and provide a fantastic seen view of the exterior on all seasons.

The toilets are flushed with recuperated rainwater (there is no need of drinkable water for toilet flush).

The house uses almost no electricity or fuel at all during most of the year thank to house orientation and the fantastic wall window in the sitting room. Even lighting has been fitted with led system.
