La Bonnée d’âne: A One-of-a-Kind Ecolodge a Stone’s Throw Away from the Loire

Looking for a 100% environmentally-friendly holiday? Come stay at La Bonnée d’âne, a unique ecolodge tucked away in the countryside with wheat-filled prairies and sunflowers stretching as far as the eye can see. This former stone farmhouse, only 30 min. from Orléans, has been lovingly restored with ecologically-sound building materials, and a focus on energy and waste-efficient methods as well as home-grown organic products.

The 100 sqm ecolodge, with its cosy-chic décor of rough-hewn wood and local antiques, has all the authenticity and natural charm of a genuine little country manor. Its 3 spacious and comfortable bedrooms can sleep 6, and the kitchen and living room with its wood pellet stove open directly onto a terrace and private garden, making it ideal for a holiday with family or friends. There’s even Wi-Fi on demand for those who can’t live without it!

A big plus: the salt-treated, non-chlorinated swimming pool heated during the summer months, meaning no more itchy eyes or skin. You can visit the many beautiful Loire Valley châteaux nearby or, if the spirit moves you, just sit still, listen and watch as a heron flies by, a roe deer gambles across the meadow, and the wind rustles softly in the trees. After all, there are a million ways to enjoy a holiday!
