After living in Colombia, Geoffrey was hesitant to return to “normal” life when he moved back to France. But a tiny house? That he built himself with reclaimed materials for under $20,000? Now that sounded like a project right up his alley.

And he did an amazing job making his home on wheels! It’s an ingenious design with a super cool living room area that’s modular and fits all his dining, gaming, and working needs. Just wait until you tour the space!

This is an incredible round floating tower cottage on a lake in Joncherey, France. It’s part of a larger community of eco-friendly habitats that share a lovely “lodge” on the shore with a spa and full bathrooms.

The floating home is reminiscent of “Swiss Family Robinson,” with rustic railings made from limbs and an all-wooden interior. There is a little bathroom on the first floor, and the second floor houses a queen bed. The deck area wraps around the house, providing a comfortable spot to enjoy nature and a mug of coffee.

This is a stone cellar below an old stone house in France that’s been converted into an incredibly cozy Airbnb. The studio-style space has everything you need — a double bed, wood-burning stove, compact bathroom, and kitchen space with a mini fridge, oven, and a variety of dishware and utensils.

The space has a blend of exposed stone and rough-hewn wood elements that add to the charm. It feels somewhat “hobbity” inside, and the stone table is a fun addition to the space. You can even dine outdoors at a custom table. What do you like most about this tiny house?

Mégane and Cédric purchased their tiny home about two years ago and have it situated on one of the most idyllic pieces of property in France! Whether the land is snow-covered or dappled with wildflowers, it looks absolutely magical. They are growing fruit trees and bushes and have a lovely garden and chickens as well.

Inside, they have a professionally-outfitted kitchen, loft bedroom, and a living room with a huge picture window that looks out on their property. They have wood heating and solar power, and a beautiful covered front porch. Read their story below and enjoy the photos!

This beautiful Baluchon tiny home was built for Sarah, who loves cooking! That’s why she wanted a spacious kitchen — complete with a four-burner oven/stove — as the focal point of her tiny home. She called it “Pètillante” which means “Sparkling” or “Bubbly.”

The whole build is bright and open, with a huge picture window in the living room, lightly-colored walls and ceiling, and the bedroom tucked away in the loft. She also has a glass shower and composting toilet. Would you live here?

At the very bottom is a living space with a small kitchenette and toilet. as you go up the winding steps, you’ll reach the bedroom loft. What do you think?

David and his wife have been building a small home in Kenya, but just before the pandemic hit they were in the process of selling their country home in France and renting out their townhome, leaving them with nowhere to stay! So they took the space above their garage and created a 300 square foot tiny house. They were able to move in just 2 days before France locked down.

While they are no longer living tiny in France, they spent about a year (during all that quarantining!) living in their gîte. David shares all the details in a little story after the photo tour, so be sure to read that!
