Overview

About the property

Cosy and eco-friendly passive house with quality amenities

Come spend your vacation in this new solar home that is as beautiful as it is elegant. It not only respects the local architectural style but also offers a warm atmosphere full of modern comfort.

Eco-friendly benefits: we built the entire house ourselves using only natural and durable materials (wooden framework, straw-bale and cellulose insulation, milk paint, lime plasters, etc.). The house also features solar panels to make hot water. This is a passive house, meaning it is well insulated and also energy efficient.

About Marie Koutcherawy

Ten years ago, we had a house built in the Grenoble basin. Our goal was to have a house that consumed as little energy as possible. So, we visited houses all over the regions of Dauphiné, Deux Savoies, and the Lyon basin -- finding the right place was a real headache!

After three years of living in that solar home, which was very energy-efficient and comfortable, we had to move to the Languedoc-Roussillon region for professional reasons.

Upon starting afresh, we revisited our original goal. We wanted to live in a house that could become more and more self-sustaining over time; however, we still could not find any professionals knowledgeable enough with this vast subject. As a result, we decided to build our home ourselves.

We meticulously studied every detail, and day by day, things started to fall into place. Because there is a large demand for this style of home, materials are becoming more and more environmentally sustainable.

We each have skills that compliment the other in this field:

one of us knows how different materials perform,

and the other knows different building techniques.

Marie Koutcherawy purchased this villa in 2013

Why Marie Koutcherawy chose Beziers area

As a result, we were able to build a natural, clean and self-sustainable home.

For example: 0 % VOC paint - 100% natural

Insulation: straw-bale and cellulose

Double-flow mechanical ventilation system

Solar-heated

Triple-glazed windows facing north and double-glazed windows facing south

Warm atmosphere - lovely interior

What makes this villa unique

Ecological house

Quiet, warm, comfortable.

Everything is new and high quality.

Agréable demeure et proprio top

  • 5 of 5

La maison est conforme au descriptif (sauf airco puisqu'elle est écologique). La déco est très jolie et le volume des pièces permet de s'y sentir à l'aise. Et la terrasse ombragée très agréable!! En ce qui concerne les propriétaires, ils sont autant charmants l'un que l'autre. Ils s'assurent de votre bien être sans être intrusifs et sont extrêmement corrects sur tous les points.

dans un cocon

  • 5 of 5

La maison en paille est très agréable dans son écrin de verdure, j'ai adoré la terrasse ombragée. La villa est à 2 minutes à pied des commerces du village, et il est possible de partir se promener à pied ou en vélo depuis la maison pour de belles ballades dans la campagne environnante. La région est magnifique pour pratiquer randonnées, oenotourisme, profiter des rivières ou de la mer.

Le logement est décoré avec goût et très bien équipé, tout est fonctionnel.

Les propriétaires sont adorables. Je recommande sans modération.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

La villa est très agréable, calme, dans son écrin de verdure. La terrasse ombragée est un vrai bonheur. A 2 minutes à pied des commerces du village, son emplacement est idéal. On peut partir se promener à pied ou en vélo et la nature autour du village est belle.

L'intérieur du logement est décoré avec goût et la maison très bien équipée. J'ai passé un excellent séjour et les propriétaires sont adorables et de bon conseil sur la région.
