The Serenity Box




Isn't this a great idea? For one euro you can rent a 'Serenity Box' on the beach. Insert one euro and remove the bracelet (which includes the key) - put in your purse, camera, whatever - close the door and wear the bracelet.

The notice on the inside of the door asks you to clean the key before inserting it in the lock.

N'est-ce pas une bonne idée? Pour un euro, vous pouvez louer une "Sérénity Box» sur la plage. Insérez un euro et retirez le bracelet ( qui comprend la clé) - mettez votre sac à main, votre appareil photo et  tout autre objet à l'intérieur - fermez la porte et gardez le bracelet.

  1. It's like a beehive of serenity. A good idea indeed. A small price to pay for serenity.
    Could they not find such a good name in French?

  2. Wow, though is an old idea, finally someone had the balls to get money approved and get it done officially!
    I remember the times we were living at the beach (check jahtours.com), we had our stuff in lockers at the train station. These lockers vanished long time ago - now I see new ones sprouting and right on the beach where they are most needed!!

  3. Nice idea. I like the nice shot of the beach & the people, too - a chance to do some people watching :)

  4. Like security lockers in a train station. Good idea.

  5. Yes, it's a very good idea. It's the same as the lockers for your clothes etc. in a public swimming pool. But why does it say 'gratuit' when it costs 1 Euro...?

  6. dj, when you give the key back you get the euo back. Just like with a shopping trolley. It's just that you need the euro piece to release the key.

  7. Why did they not think of this decades ago? They should have these on every beach.

    I think people would use these even if they did not get their Euro back.

  9. As always, a simple idea to a problem when people visit the beach and are worried about security. Should have these at every beach

  10. Now that's a brilliant service. Not easy to make it conspicuous enough yet not too intrusive in the landscape. I believe they did a pretty good job.

  13. Hello everybody,
    I am a member of the french company Serenity BOX and I would like to thank all of you for your kind messages about our Serenity BOX.
    All went good this summer and everyone was happy to have this kind of service at the beach.
    It encourages us to go on and try to install more Serenity BOX.
