You will sometimes want to gather with your friends or family to celebrate, share a moment or “live together”. With a human scale capacity, the Metairie Rouge is the perfect place to truly meet up. We keep at heart your objectives of discovery, sharing, simplicity and originality.
Depending on everyone needs and on the period, this place can provide you intimacy or sharing. Children can play freely, and finally everyone can dream, discover, watch, rest and settle.
La Metairie is in transition towards a greener future, more resilient, less dependent on fossil energy and valorising collective well-being and “living together”. At the heart of our project are ecology, experimentation, use of local resources, mutual assistance, development and transmission of skills via meeting and exchanges. Our aim is to develop a peaceful and calm place which will respect life and living beings.
