Recharge, reconnect with nature, and live french art de vivre in this tiny house, nestled in a Saint-Emilion Vineyard in the land of Grand Crus in the Bordeauc region.
Tiny House rental, the slow tourism in France
Picture this: no neighbours, no Wi-Fi, no TV.
Just an elegantly simple cabin (or ‘tiny home’) in the heart of a vineyard in an organic estate in Saint-Emilion , a medieval village that’s a stone’s throw away from the world-renowned wine capital __Bordeaux __. On these hill slopes, wine is a serious affair. The reds that grow here indeed count amongst France’s most prestigious. In this stunning locale, travellers can press pause on everyday life, recharge and feel right at home.

Stay in a cabin in the Bordeaux region, France?
This tiny home concept comes to France from a company called Parcel. The eco-friendly cabin to rent is positioned in a lush organic estate belonging to Veronique and Pascal, members of an eighth generation winegrowing family.
Parcel’s tiny house premise is beautifully simple. Its goal? Giving holidaymakers a place to engage with the terroir, experience the beauty of French nature and gastronomy , and remunerate the host winemaker fairly. In fact, winemakers hosting tiny houses on their land receive a commission from Parcel, to reinvest in their land.

Wine tasting and slow living in Bordeaux
Before you arrive, reserve a bottle of rich, sensuous Bordeaux red and some local goodies, too. Once you’ve taken a moment to inhale the fresh, crisp countryside air, be sure to fix yourself a welcome apéritif in true French tradition.

A stay in a tiny house is not complete until you’ve visited the farmers’ markets or tasted artisanal produce directly from producers at nearby farms. Follow the wine routes and explore the lush, mineral-green beauty of the surrounding countryside. This Saint-Émilion tiny house is ideal for two.
