Our philosophy

Sharing and preserving the environment

Marianne Cornelis, “the Belgian one”, was a art teacher…
Christian Vergez, “the French one” , was a ski instructor…

…We met at the UCPA (Sports holidays centre), both horseback riding teachers at the time. Our shared passion for teaching, nature and horses brought us together.

The ecological cottages, the incredible beauty and biodiversity of the estate, allow us to welcome you and share our passions with you in a coherent way.


Our visitors’ opinions

A little corne of paradise

…in absolute calm. Beautiful estate where a herd of 16 ponies live in freedom. Marianne and Christian, thank you for your hospitality. Thanks to Christian in particular for his kind pedagogy and his sharing of his knowledge about horses.
Even if you don’t know anything about horses but you want to discover these magnificent animals… here you are in good hands.

A great place to rest and recharge your batteries

Two cottages located in peaceful and magnificent landscapes. Calm and respect for nature are real here, between walks on the Natura 2000 classified site and swimming in the lake nestled between trees, hiking, cycling or even a walk with the valiant pony residing on the site accompanied by Christian for an introduction to the horses, or simply settling down with a good book on the belvedere or in the grass, what more could you ask for? The kindness of our hosts, Marianne & Christian, discreetly accompany us throughout this stay. What more could you ask for ?

vsiraux nature

In Ensarnaut, you turn off your mobile phone, disconnect from your city life and immerse yourself into nature. This ecological cottage is a paradise, nestled in the middle of 65 hectares of forest and pastures where ponies live freely all year round. Marianne and Christian are wonderful, caring and warm hosts. A place where it is good to settle down and recharge your batteries

A magnificent resourcing estate: an experience you shall absolutely discover!

We stayed in the lodge with our family for our Easter holidays and booked immediately for All Saints’ Holidays because we all, young and old ones, appreciated Marianne and Christian’s welcome, the beauty of the estate, the wild ponies (our 6 and 14 year old children knew the names of almost all the ponies at the end of the stay…. with a crush on Iota!), the serenity of the estate (ideal to “disconnect” and take a step back for those who need to take a break), but also the sporting bike/ mountain bike rides along the paths of the region or the visit of the AIRBUS site for a rainy day.
In short, you have to try!!!!!

Calm and nature

A resourcing stay, relaxation, nature, and as always the kindness and good advice of our hosts. Best of all : fabulous walks with ponies and some beautiful encounters (deer, wild boars,…).
We will be back !
