On the site of an ancient lime quarry in France, just one hour from the beautiful city of Rennes, you will find a collection of unique glamping accommodation including forest cabins, and even a floating cabin, accessible only by boat! Rustic, charming, ecofriendly, peaceful, picturesque and utterly unique.
Abandoned for more than 50 years, these ancient lime quarries dating from the 19th century have seen Nature regain its rights. This site, which is the largest water reserve of the Mayenne, is a unique and amazing haven of peace.Since 2010, the team formed by the two initiators of the Natur’Eau Parc have been focusing on four principles: water, ecology, heritage and Man. These fundamentals were at the basis of the site rehabilitation project using an eco-responsible approach.
Although it is less than 2 hours from Paris and just an hour from Rennes, Echologia feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere. The local area is a haven for hiking, canoeing and swimming or you could visit local attractions like the Jardin de la Perrine, the Cathedrale de Laval and Le Mont-Saint-Michel (2 hours from Laval), or go golfing ten minutes from Echologia
