    URGENT: NEED HELP TO REDO AN OLD CEVENOL ROOF TOP ... AND RESTORE AN EARTHBAG HOUSE
    (Start 3rd week of august till 20th of September)


    Jade and Karine, a world renowned high-wire walker and a Hollywood stuntwoman, both former Cirque du Soleil performers, decided to move to southern France to raise their now 3 children and create an artist retreat / bed and breakfast while renovating a 300 years old small ex-monastery stone house. They always need a hand for something... house, garden, chickens, cats, dogs, kids, guests, yurts, stone work, wood,life ... everywhere you look, there is a project! Good life! But first of all this summer , we'll call all hands on deck to help rescue our earthbag building. Camping gears might be a plus as we'll welcome as many helpers as we can end of august and first 3 weeks of september.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    WE EAT MEAT ! (happy , well raised, organic and local) ! ; ) (paleo diet) A lot of it ...we hunt it too ! ; ) we might not be the best at fulfilling the special diet needs of vegans and vegetarians... we keep on trying but find it hard to cook separate meals as we cook often with animal grease ... and our kitchen is tiny, making it hard to have more than one cook in it. so ..."veGGIES ... bring your own extra proteine goodies (soja , nuts and all) ... we wouldn't want you to be poorly fed but it might not always be adapted to your needs.
