Travelling by train:
The cabins can be reached by train (Eurostar/TGV) to Angouleme followed by a bus trip to our nearest town of Piegut and we are now offering free transfers from Piegut to the cabins, about 5km. Please enquire for full information on how to travel to us by train.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Planet and peopleThe woodsman's cabin has a low carbon impact on the environment, it has no electricity supply which really makes you think about what you need to use and when. It has solar lighting as well as candles. We have a system for recycling waste which is collected by our local commune. Organic waste is composted and used on our garden.
Water is provided by the source which is ultimately supplied by rain water so its in our own interests to use it efficiently. The water is pumped up and stored in a large tank behind the cabin. We provide drinking water. Visitors to the cabin are given written info on using water efficiently.
By providing bike hire, we are encouraging visitors to make the most of the local shops, restaurants and businesses. We provide written info on local business and events. Any money spent here helps to strengthen the local community.
We shop locally ourselves when we can and all materials and stocks for the cabin are purchased through our local network of suppliers. Much of the cabin has been built and furnished with second hand materials, ie the roof tiles were salvaged from a tumbledown barn, and the timber was coppiced locally. The woodland surrounding the cabin is a haven for wildlife as it's quiet and remains generally undisturbed. Guide books are provided on what visitors might expect to see. Our ethos is to provide visitors with a unique holiday experience which provides good value for money with minimal environmental impact.
