The secret of self-construction

Harmonizing between Heaven and Earth



"From the idea of a cabin in the woods to the creation of earthen eco-homes":

The adventure of a self-building experience of eco-responsible tourist habitats

"Manisin so far as he lives".Conference "Building, living, thinking" by Martin Heidegger
(1951)

Openness



"Going on an adventure means accepting to meet the unknown.

The art is to keep your mind and heart open to welcome what is trying to grow". 


The love of a little Savoyard with an Ardèche fairy

A love affair with the place and the Ardèche

A shared taste for hospitality

The awakening of a dream: sleeping under the trees and the stars

A reconnection with the pleasures of childhood (building a hut)

The complicity with Eric Defrenne (Jolie Terre)

The discovery of the work of raw earth 


Commitment




"Aware of our responsibility for our footprint on this planet Earth, we have sought to harmonise different realities and needs" 


***


- Drawing inspiration from the nature of the land to stay in touch with the environment


- Using "local trees" to create timber frame structures on stilts


- Extending the earth by "erecting" it to create a raw earth envelope, ecological, contemporary, natural and biodegradable.


- Favour ecological and bio-sourced materials that create a low-allergenic environment and guarantee thermal, acoustic, hygrometric and olfactory comfort.

"La Fée des Bois, in particular, has been a daily laboratory to find this balance between respect for the environment, ecological construction and eco-responsible tourism.


From this time of maturation was born a patent for an industrial process of raw earth projection, at JOLIE TERRE, in which we are proud to have participated and to promote".


90% of our habitats are bio-degradable!"


Creativity



"From echoes to resonances, inventing your decoration"


Complicity with the 5 elements

Resonate with the forest

Let yourself be bathed in light 

Rely on the earth, let yourself be guided by the topology of the land

Let yourself be inspired by the spirit of the place

Welcome the cat's paw to awaken your creativity


Playing with the ochre tones echoing the Grotte Chauvet 2, "a jewel of prehistoric art of universal value", classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


"One thing leading to another, willingly accepting to change one's initial plans"

Generosity



This Ardèche earth, apparently rough and pungent, is in reality abundant, rich and nourishing:


Raw earth for the walls

Douglas fir for the framework and the piles

Green oak and blue cypress for the beams

Water for the pool and jacuzzi

Birds to wake up to in the morning

Stars to bring you closer to your dreams


Time reveals the secrets of this abundance and the natural generosity of its guests.


The Sense of Comfort



Guided by the sense of well-being and the need to remain in enjoyment , the rudimentary side of the "hut project" was transformed into cocooning and comfortable bubbles .


Without losing the "cabin" spirit, the eco-gîtes have been designed and created to invite you to reconnect with this childhood dream.



"In Terre Happy, happiness is in the wood" 



Respecting its values



A constructive and environmentally friendly concept "Integrating wood-frame huts on stilts with "local trees" and a raw earth envelope.

Entirely ecological and bio-sourced materials that also provide a low-allergenic environment.
