Followers of this blog may be interested to know that écovallée will be open this year (2017) with a small – and huge – difference.

Closed are the 18-foot family yurts (Mustardseed and Peaseblossom). Open are just two 12-foot yurts (Puck and Ariel), available for rent from May to September. Each yurt has its own huge outdoor kitchen and an equal share of this beautiful 12.5-acre site. The two yurts – which are ideal for solo travellers and couples – are about 100 metres (100 yards) apart, so peace and quiet is guaranteed. At a maximum of €500 for a week in July and August, staying in this eco-friendly paradise will not cost the Earth.

You can book through airbnb or, or contact me (Alex) directly through the website.
