The House

Situated in the heart of the Armorica and Iroise Natural Parks , the house is a ten-minute walk from Stiff harbour and 200 meters from the Vauban lighthouse. Enthousiastically restored and tenaciously ecological, this typical Ouessant fisherman’s house is set in a landscape of broom, gorse, heather and ferns. In harmony with the calm and silence of the island, it is a place where everyone feels at home

One staircase leads to two bedrooms. Each has its own bathroom (with sink, shower and toilet) and two 80 cm beds which together can make a double bed.
A second staircase leads exclusively to a luminous master bedroom looking out on the Molène archipelligo and the Vauban lighthouse. The two single beds can be joined to make a double.
All three bedrooms are equipped with an automatic field off-switch. No electromagnetic field is present once the lights are turned off.




A garden of about 800 m2 is enclosed by a dry-stone wall.

Our restoration has focused on using the most wholesome and durable materials possible: lime, hemp, clay. The roof is insulated with 30 cm of hemp fiber, paints are made with lime, the clay comes from wood-fired kilns in the Vendée region and the wooden materials are from French forests. Up to 10,000 liters of rainwater is caught, filtered and stored in a cistern.
In November 2012 we installed solar panels to power a water heater and the underfloor heating circuit. Wastewater is treated by phyto-purification (see Reeb ). The overall project will be complete when the planned « Pigot » windmill is installed.
Have a lovely time!
