A green house
During the renovation of the building special attention was paid to the materials used and the insulation so that Ambroisie is now classified as a “low energy" house. Two water systems have been installed (tap water and rainwater to supply toilets and washing machine).
Solar hot water and photovoltaic panels supply the building’s hot water and electricity. Additionally, a wood boiler was installed to provide extra heat when necessary.
What to bring...
All the practical questions are answered in a document that we send along with the lease agreement. However, we can already tell you that as in the Amande and Amandine cottages:
The baby equipment is suitable for small children and includes a high chair, a changing mat, special cutlery and crockery, a bottle warmer, a folding bed with a small duvet, a baby bouncer and a potty. No need to bring any of your baby equipment, apart from the buggy!
Cleaning is your responsibility but we provide environmentally friendly cleaning products for you to use, most of which are home made by us, so no need to bring these with you !
There is no spring water at Ambroisie, but the tap water is good enough for you not to need to buy bottled water (which is expensive and generates a lot of waste).
Similarly, following our philosophy, we ask you to sort your waste for recycling. Separate containers for each material are provided for this purpose.
To the rear is a private garden, and a courtyard, where you can have a barbecue, a party, or a reception ... Eat and relax, accompanied by the soothing sound of water.
There is also a traditional clay bread oven.
