One Place, One Story...
We are a french couple, left for adventure and willing to create a sustainable place to live and welcome people.
Four years ago, we discovered Sumba island in Indonesia. During our stay, we met with Sumbanese people, wild landscapes and untouched culture. We thought, she will be the perfect place for our challenge.
Today, in parternship with a Sumbanese family, who welcomed us during our many stays, we are proud to offer you an authentic place. We work with local people and put in place sustainable techniques: use of local materials, water treatment by phyto purification, recovery of rainwater, kitchen garden, biogas ...
Come to enjoy and take part of this adventure with us.
We take our architectural inspiration from the traditional Sumbanese style with pointed thatched roofs. Indeed, it has several purpose: It allows good ventilation in the house, the upper part serves as an attic for food. Also, in local beliefs, it enable a connection with the spirits.
To offer you all the comfort, we have modernized the houses and put in place sustainable solutions to keep this island magic.
