Cast yourself away into the heartland of the stunningly beautiful French countryside, 9km from the historic town of Rochechourt.
The property has its own private lake and all amenities are powered entirely by solar.
Peace and tranquility guaranteed!
100% solar powered & eco-friendly. Escape the rat race and relax off-grid at one of our eco cabins.
At Castaway we are proud to support the environment by using only solar energy and we are passionate about sharing the experience with you.
There is a fully functioning kitchen with gas hob-cooker, whistle kettle, french coffee press, utensils and a fridge.
The spacious bathroom has a jet shower cabin, toilet and sink.
The double bedroom has a single roll-out bed underneath the double bed for younger guests.
Heating is provided by your very own log burner in the living room and water is supplied from the on-site well.
Whilst internet is not provided, television and a DVD player is available to offer you some modern comforts.
Please be mindful that we are entirely dependant on the sun for our energy power and the rain for our water supply. Therefore our inputs are all 12v (luxuries such as hair straighteners will not work). If you have USB mobile/computer chargers we ask that you please bring those along (a power adaptor for USB's is provided).
A 12v hairdryer is also supplied for your use.
We have 4 bicycles available on-site for your use.
Our guests have 100% access to the land including the lakes. We have a floating pontoon on the lake for fun "lake surfing" or romantic glides across the water. Parking is provided and a security gate and camera are installed at the entrance.
The on-site owners have two friendly labradors and two fluffy cats who are kept apart (except for those guests who want a little companionship or someone to teach them how to lake swim!)
Interaction with guests
The owners are on-site to offer you any help, should you need it, including suggesting the best sites to visit in the local area but prefer to leave you to discover the tranquility and beauty of the site for yourselves.
Other things to note
Bed linens and towels are provided during your stay as are all kitchen utensils.
We also provide minimum products such as hand soap and dish detergent.
We offer all of our guests a bottle of wine to enjoy at your leisure as you unwind either on the decked terrace or in front of the roaring fire.
* the fridge can only be powered in summer months. There is outdoor storage to keep produce cool in winter months.
Please note that due to the wooden cabins and the surrounding woodlands we do not allow fires or barbecues on site.
Please be very careful if using candles inside the cabin and always use a plate or saucer underneath to catch any hot wax or embers.
