Meet the hosts
Instants D’Absolu is run by Laurence and Daniel who were inspired by Safari Ecolodges in Africa. The pair set about creating stylish, safari style accommodation in a remote area of France to reconnect with nature and help others appreciate the beauty of France.
Laurence is passionate about nature whilst Daniel’s passion is mountain running and music. Together they were drawn to La du Pecher for its pristine scenery, seasonal climate and abundance of nature
