An eco-cottage in the heart of the Berry region
6-person holiday cottage with 2-star rating by the ADTI (Agence départementale touristique de l’Indre, English: Indre département regional tourist agency of the Indre départment).
Located in the centre of France, halfway between Lille and Perpignan, or between Brittany and the Alps.
Ideal for reuniting family and friends living afar; no need to travel thousands of miles!
For the weekend or for longer holiday stays.
We were delighted to first open the doors of our holiday cottage to visitors in 2019.
Ever since, we’ve made the most of the opportunity to share our love for the place, for its surroundings, and for the wider region.
Opening a holiday let is also a chance to meet new people and spend some time together.
Gardening aficionados, we will be able to talk organic practices and plant knowledge, particularly regarding edible plants.
Our project is largely environmentally friendly. We put our kitchen and plant waste to compost and we separate our non-compostables. We have composting eco-toilets throughout the grounds. In short, as far as possible, we follow the principles of permaculture (rediscovering the common sense of nature yet staying up to speed with innovative and eco-friendly technologies).
At Les Myosotis you will find a 6-person holiday let within a detached cottage opposite our own, with its own private walled garden lined with trees and flowers; all this within a 2-hectare plot maintained in permaculture.
We are planning to install a solar shower to allow for camping pitches (a maximum of 6 tents), and eco-toilets are already available in this area.
A family in love with nature, it will be our pleasure to offer you a warm welcome and friendly hospitality for your stay.
You will discover a calm and verdant place surrounded by unspoiled countryside.
The southern side of Southern Boischaut (in the southern half of the Berry region), is located in a hilly area more suited to livestock than large-scale field crop farming, its wooded enclosures (known locally as bouchures) giving poetry to landscape. Our hamlet being called “Bord”, we are thus located on the “Domaine de Bord” (English: “Bord Estate”), so the association we’ve formed is called “À Bord de Terre” (English: “Aboard the Earth”). We offer work experience placements on site.
This winter we’ve been working for you! The cottage’s shower room is now separated from the toilets, which are themselves equipped with a hot-cold washbasin. In addition, the corridor leading to the upstairs bedrooms is now much wider and the stairwell has a lot of natural light. We also took the opportunity to install mechanical ventilation.
We’re waiting for solar panels to be installed on the cottage roof in late June/early July in order to reduce energy cost.
