HOMEL'Orri de Planès is our guesthouse, your lodge in the mountains. It's a 300 year old stone farmhouse that has been tastefully renovated, using the sun's energy to produce its own electricity, hot water, and heat, offering guests year round, environmentally friendly comfort. It's a great place to be after a long day's effort. In Summertime, soaking up the afternoon sunshine, taking a dip in our solar heated pool, then sipping a cool glass of local wine or beer on our outdoor terrace while listening to good music. In Winter, sitting in front of our cozy fireplace, warming yourself up and recharging your batteries. It's a place to interact, to meet people from other countries and cultures, to sit around long tables and share delicious meals that have been carefully prepared using high quality local and organic ingredients. And most of all, it's a house with principles, a place where each decision has been made taking into account it's impact on our environment and on the people who live in it. Top
