|To live a time in mountain,
place of ressourcement and leisures,to rediscover the rhythm and the spirit of rural life,in a healthy habitat, natural and respectful of its environment.
Far from the stress of the cities and of overloaded leisure centers, to meet the need for those which want to renew contact with nature, in the conscience and the respect of what it brings us , we established a place of reception in the mountains. It is intended to families and groups in search of a place for leisure, relaxation and/or training. Holidays, training courses, seminars, family meetings and celebrations, group events, and professional meetings, the place fits multiple functions.
Our project takes place in the gite of Railletière located in Vercors. The village counts les than fifty inhabitants and is settled in a cirque of mountains on the edge of the plateau of Coulmes. At the same time away from the stressed world and geographically close to "civilization", the site is ideal for its calm and the nature of tourism which develops nearby. Here, the mountain is discovered at a "human" rhythm, that of the excursion, by foot, in ski and snowshoes, and cross-country skiing.
In a spirit respectful of nature, rebuildings and improvements are carried out with ecological materials - which can be recycled and/or are renewable - respectful of the environment, and completely healthy for the occupants. Explanatory notes located here and there make it possible to the visitors to better understand the ecological habitat; at the same time respectful of the environment, energy efficient and healthy for its inhabitants. Moreover, the gite will be soon equipped with an automatic wood central heating system with solar input. We also use ecological products for maintenance. We favor and sensitize to energy saving.
To encourage leisures in contact with nature, we will place at disposal: documentation and information on fauna, flora, the rural life (local products, life style, traditions...) and the geography of the place, forest roads... Back in the gite, to ease relaxation, we will soon propose a sauna, jacuzzi...
Our objective is also to propose seminars and courses with topics centered on ressourcement (relaxation, personal development), the rural life (the gite also has a baker's oven), and finally the ecological habitat and renewable energies.
Our wish is that a stay at the gite of Railletière allows each of you to rediscover the contact with nature, to make, a time, the experience of a healthy and natural habitat, to live with the rhythm and the spirit of the rural life.
To live a unique experience of what nature and the mountains can bring to us and thus contribute to our wellbeing.
