  • The structures are all built with wood, raised at an average height of 1m80 above sea level to respect the natural landscape and not affect the drainage. This also allows to naturally ventilate the bungalows, which means less insects and therefore less repellents. This elevation, the conservation of the natural landscape and vegetation and the eco-aware lighting respects the turtle nesting
