I set off in my tiny red Fiat 500 to find the Roulotte (Caravan) in La Brosse, a tiny hamlet near the ancient village of Janvry, south-east of Paris. There are 3 ‘Barrel’ houses in the grounds of the Domaine de Marguerite and this idyllic place is certainly an alternative to the hustle and bustle of central Paris if you want something a little different. I had seen this tiny house in tinyhousetalk.com previously so thanks to Alex for the tip!
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.

It features a unique wardrobe and pantry system that I think you should see. 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).
The tiny house The Little Prince is the first tiny house we make with a blanket and partial zinc cladding. Zinc is a durable material (life span of 80 to 100 years) waterproof, malleable and very aesthetic.1

Sebastien Cloarec and Guillaume Gilbert met each other in Engineering School in 2009. By the time 2017 rolled around, they created a company together called l’Atelier Des Branchés to build tiny houses.
