Introduction to the house - The building

OME SWEET HOME is a contemporary house bearing the “ECO GÎTE” label, situated in the heart of the CHAMPAGNE region and the PARC NATUREL DE LA FORÊT D’ORIENT; it has been decorated with great care and taste for your enjoyment and relaxation.
All the materials used draw on concepts such as sustainability, the habitat, and organic constructs in harmony with nautrally-inspired building methods. The wood construction is based on natural materials and insulating techniques such as cellulose insulation, wood wool and solar energy via panels integrated to the roof. The varieties of woods used are spruce, chestnut and poplar. Natural lime plaster with added linen or pigments were used to bring variety to the decoration of the ground-floor living area. To provide variety and individuality to the four bedrooms, we chose vegetable-based paints (soya oil) that ensure better air quality.

A word from the carpenter

As the assistant manager of the LES CHARPENTIERS DE TROYES company, I would like to express my pride in having had the opportunity to undertake the environmentally-friendly construction project for Mr and Mrs OME at Laubressel.
This very ambitious project corresponds perfectly to the approach of the Parc de la Forêt d’Orient. Tourist services, sustainable development and energy saving are the keywords for this user-friendly project. Also, as the President of the “Moulins à Vent Champenois” association situated in the borough of Dosches, three kilometres from the Gîte, like Chantal and Yves OME I care about a quality welcome for our visitors.
Tourists often come from far away to discover the town of Troyes and the lakes of the Forêt d’Orient and are delighted to stay for several days.
