EUROPE’S FIRST ECOLOGICAL OFF-GRID TINY HOUSE VILLAGE
Affordable, luxury ‘tiny house’ off-grid living
Outline permission is in place for an eco hamlet to be created, on this fully restored, 17th century chateau estate in rural France. The property lies in the heart of 12 hectares/30 acres of fields, parkland and forest in the midst of quiet, deep-green nature, surrounded by hills & mountains, forests & lakes in the eastern Dordogne, one of most unspoilt regions of France.
The concept is to create a learning centre and eco village. There is currently outline planning permission for approximately 12 houses. Site plans are ready and house design ideas prepared.

Water: There are two wells on the property and a lot of spring water. We plan to use these sources for water both in the chateau and the eco-cabins. Currently, the chateau is plumbed into the well water but not using it as the wells need to be cleaned and tested before we move over to them.

Two designs have been created for tiny houses (Jade or Carnelian) or alternatively, a two storey family home, Amethyste.
