Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Saint-Geniès-de-Fontedit - Koutcherawy

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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

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 house in 2013

Très bon séjour

  • 4 of 5

La maison est très agréable et fonctionnelle; joliment décorée avec un beau jardin (peut être encore plus sympa si tondu !?) et une piscine qui invite à la baignade ! Les propriétaires sont très sympa et à l'écoute.

Je recommande cette location !

Bon plan

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour en famille dans cette maison tout confort, bien équipée et bien exposée.

La position à proximité du centre du village permet de profiter des commerces de proximité. L'accueil de marie et de son époux nous a mis à l'aise dès notre arrivée. Nous avons bien profité également des équipements mis à disposition à l'extérieur. Il ne manque rien ! Cathy

Des vacances comme on les aime

  • 4 of 5

Avant tout, il faut saluer l'accueil chaleureux de Marie et de sa famille, qui transforme des congés sympas en vacances comme on les aime. Pour parler de la maison, elle est à la fois fonctionnelle et charmante, entièrement équipée et très agréable à vivre. C'est un tour de force et d'habileté que cette maison à énergie passive, cela vaut la peine d'y passer un séjour à la fois pour le lieu et la rencontre d'une famille passionnée et courageuse !

Les rares améliorations sont en cours, il faut laisser la nature oeuvrer pour que les haies masquent un peu plus le terrain communal.
