This Tiny House Tour in France is a guest post by Chris Wenban of Tiny Footprint

While spending time with family in Europe I was fortunate to find myself with a week to spare. I have a good friend in Paris and decided to be multi-functional (as all good tiny obsessives are) and arrange a tiny house tour in France, culminating in a tiny themed weekend in Paris.

Via the wonders of google I managed to find 2 tiny houses to stay in relatively close to each other to the west of Paris near Nantes, this also happens to be the home region of Baluchon who have been one of the key ground-breakers and tiny house builders in the movement in France. With a tiny hire car, a Renault Twizy, I left Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and headed west toward Bretagne (Brittany) and the Loire Valley, not to find castles, but to find tiny houses.

This is a beautiful French tiny house for sale by Tiny House Lumen out of Bordeaux, France.

It’s got a unique wardrobe and pantry system. Basically, they’re on casters but easily hide away and blend in like cabinets. Never thought of that! I thought you might like it.

The house is built by Tiny House Lumen and is offered at 39,500 euros (approximately $48,532 USD). Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!

Its architecture is reminiscent of the shape of a small traditional house while integrating a good dose of modernity thanks to its large window with small wood and its luminous porch.1
