  • Description

    Description

    We own and run an eco cottage in Kep, Cambodia.
    Franco-Khmer couple we came by chance in Kep in 2003.
    Our structure:
    We have built houses inspired by traditional Khmer architecture: wooden buildings on stilts with thatched roofs and tiles. We have also used local stone and bricks to strengthen the foundations. These natural materials, architectural design and our situation at the top of the hill overlooking the Gulf of Thailand are environment-friendly homes adapted to the twenty-first century. In addition, they are equipped and decorated to make your stay as pleasant as possible.They were equipped with solar panels in 2011.
    Our training school:
    We recruit young boys and girls from poor families of the region and we train them for careers in hospitality also giving them an education as complete as possible. Our method aims them to be self-working so they can help their families.
    Our services:
    We offer accommodation and quality catering but also objective advice on the various activities available in Kep and its region.
    We can ensure the transfer from Phnom Penh to Kep and return on request (and other destinations in Cambodia and towards the vietnamese border).
    We have a conference room and we can accommodate working groups of twenty people in full board.


    Minimum stay of one week is required

    Kep is a seaside resort founded by the French in the early 20th century. All style houses "Le Corbusier" were destroyed during the Khmer Rouge era.
    We are a small-sized structure of 7 bungalows and ensure a professional and language training to young people from farms around Kep. Most of them can not read or write in arriving home.

    Most of our guests come from French speaking countries.
    Workers with whom we build our houses are farmers who grow rice in Ordinary Time. They do not have sufficient expertise to deal with innovations in electrical, plumbing, masonry, etc. ...
    We offer accommodation and meals to those who accept immersion among Cambodians.
