“Experience the real bohemian life
disconnect from the digital world, reconnect with the real one!”

We are Florian and Mickaël. We founded the non profit organization Roulopa to promote our nomadic gypsy caravan guest house and other activities. Not only is this a new activity but a 10 year living together project. We live on the road, our horses pulling the wagons the guest house is one of them. This life changing metamorphosis and transition towards a voluntary simplicity is built for the future and shared along the way.

The Dragonfly wagon…

The Dragonfly wagon was our dwelling all year round and hosts our other activities (theater, music, open scene, sharing circles etc). It was our home sweet home with no white piqueted fence but such a large garden! This is where we created, tried new crafts and it was the showroom of a new way of life. It was named after the wing shaped bedroom that opens up on the outside. This shifting wall is also an open scene for local artists, musicians, actors etc.

The new Hippocamp’buse wagon…

This new wagon, created in 2019 is now our dwelling as well as the seasonnal guest wagon.

It is available to rent for a night, a weekend or more during the dry season… follow our adventures in the last century nomadic Brittany.

One step after the other live the bohemian life, with the horses, around a camp fire, singing to the stars, listening to gypsy music.

“The aim of our adventure is to shift your head and turn it toward a new planet, a greater horizon, plant seeds of happiness.”
