Stopover in Noirmoutier….a family affair! Christine, Patrice, mother and father of Maud, Etienne, Alexis and Lorraine liked to meet each year in a cozy and warm place. It was in 2017, after renting a house on the island of Noirmoutier that our project was born.
We looked for a place that resembles us, capable of accommodating the whole family, while maintaining a certain independence. We also needed a place close to the sea, close to shops, a large garden, etc… and of course within our budget! After several months of research and multiple exchanges, we bought a house located at 34B rue du grand four in Noirmoutier in Ile. Unfortunately this house did not meet all our criteria and major work had to be undertaken. But our project was on!
After many meetings and brainstorming evenings, we imagined a central house capable of bringing the whole family together for a friendly moment and independent annex houses. We have thus kept the existing house and built new buildings all around it, respecting the rules of town planning and the constraints of buildings in France. It was in February 2020 that our building permit was validated.
Work started in autumn 2020. We wanted to involve local companies to preserve the architecture of the “noirmoutrine” houses. After a year and a half of work, our project was completed in June 2022 !
The first few months were quite rock n’roll, between the excitement of the opening, the stress and the little apprehension of working with the family. We remember the first rental weekend where we were both super happy and excited to open but also quite stressed to have the first feedback. We were eager to know if our concept was going to please !
