Les Ecureuils is a multi-functional house.
rooms and facilities
On the first floor there are 3 large bedrooms, 2 with 8 beds each (4 bunk beds) one with 6 beds. The beds have a cover, a pillow, and two blankets. However, you need to bring your own sleeping bag, at least a sleeping bag liner.
On the same floor is the shared washroom with 5 sinks, 4 toilets, and 2 showers.
In the attic there are 2 single rooms with 2 single beds each. These are small cozy nests that give you a feeling of security in this big and solid house. For the two rooms there is a shared bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower/bathtub.
These rooms can be rented as “Bed & Breakfast” – they then include breakfast, bed linen, and bath towels – or as a “dormitories”, using your own equipment (sleeping bag,…).
In the roof truss, there is a quiet room that is regularly used for meditations. It is equally fit for praying, for yoga practices, and for calm exercises, explorations, even for small exhibits. The room is accessible through narrow and steep stairs, has a sloping ceiling, and can host some 12 persons.
Les Ecureuils has a large professional kitchen with 6 electric plates, 2 ovens, a dishwasher, a fridge, and a freezer. Attached is a pantry, which remains cool even in summer.
Located next to the kitchen and connected by a hatch is the dining room. It is spacious for groups of up to 20 people but can accommodate up to 26. On warm days you can also use the benches in the garden. The hallway from the kitchen leads straight out.
Outside of the meals, the dining room transforms into a meeting room. Coffee, tea, fruits,… remain all easily available from the kitchen.
For presentations and interactions, a mobile 55′ monitor is available together with a magnetic white board. Also, there is a sufficient number of power outlets for setting up computers or other devices.
Free WiFi is available throughout the house. Mobile phones work well at this location and there is a traditional fixed-line emergency connection in the house.
