Among the fields of the so-called golden triangle of Whyin French countryside an hour and a half away from Paris, Rosalie house is a new autumn destination. Three huts for the night, three bed & breakfasts for the day, these wooden cabins are custodians of the deepest spirituality. Immersed in an estate of 2.7 hectares, certainly far from the trumpeting of cars and consequently from all the city noise, the seasonal pit stops boast roofs under which to meditate and windows behind which to scan the November horizon (and not alone). Thus, the eco-houses there are three to live in for days or weeks and they have recently opened their doors with the aim of hosting anyone who feels the need to find themselves in the world. This work is an idea of Anne-Christelle Roussel And Bertrand L’huilliertwo small tourism entrepreneurs who have turned a design into reality.
The project was born thanks to the recovery of furniture which has been given back a second life. Between clean lines and French style, the branded trio Rosalie house enjoys the beneficial influence of the forest and the lake. It also has a private spa. No massages of course – here solitude is silence and therefore harmony -, but instead, plenty of space for a heated tub in which to immerse yourself and lose track of time. It is an authentic Norwegian bath aesthetically inspired by the coldest lakes of northern Europe. And speaking of lakes. The huts are connected to a fresh water basin through a bridge to be crossed to breathe Nature. Here, at the foot of the walkway, a small boat leaves guests the freedom to ride the water reaching a nearby islet.
The atmosphere inside the three houses is relaxed. And it tastes like family. After all, Anne-Christelle has transferred everything she takes with her on her journeys alongside her companion into the interiors. The aesthetic plot is affectionate, confidential, fraternal. The elements that summarize a warm and soft contemporary living are: organic paints, handmade ornaments, numerous candles and Provençal soaps. “Nothing was left to chance”. The three huts, different in size, have different capacities and services. Moon housewith exclusive access to the Nordic bath, it is a destination for four people; The Friendly House it can accommodate a whole family; Les Casas Friendly et Slow accommodates up to six people who can skillfully share the kitchen and bathroom. And in the project there is also a pinch of Italy. Breakfast, designed for palates in search of traditional and home flavors, is a sacred moment. Legs under the table: between sweet and savory, with the forest crossing the threshold of the house through the large windows, traveling is also a useful activity to experiment with new interpretations of the queen of our tables, lasagna.
