rectangle  A Special History

Our youth hostel is a beautiful wooden house that was the first dwelling of the Plateaux Commun-ô-Terre, an ecovillage founded in the 1970s. For a few years, it housed up to fifteen people as well as stockers on the ground floor, which made for a natural heating system. Its distinctiveness comes from its peculiar architecture, a legacy from the times, and from the fact that it has remained a place of meeting and exchange throughout the years. The house was converted to a youth hostel during the nineties, but the experience didn't last. Today, it has been restored by children of the Plateaux who are preserving its collective vocation by opening its door to travelers from all around the world.
