  • Description

    Description

    I live a basic self sufficient lifestyle isolated in a forest on the French countryside. I take care of my own food and breed animals for the meat. Not all the way, a supermarket is still part of the foodchain. I started my current lifestyle many years ago with a partner and am continuing the back to nature experience on my own now. Living here brings energy and connection to nature and ourself.

    Help

    I am looking for help in all the things that are part of my daily routine on my place, in my house and around in the forest. If you have a talent for cooking that would be very welcome, please share your knowledge to make me enjoy cooking more.. Apart from that your hands and body are welcome for harvesting and preparing vegetables. For chopping firewood together with me (autumn and winter). Clean and maintain to keep everything in good function. To help me with repairs and construct new ideas. To take care of the animals etc. But also you as a person are welcome to cummunicate and exchange with me.

    My house is isolated from the world. The neirest neighbour is at 5km walking. I live on a forest road. Acces by car is no problem. There is no public transport. I can pick you up at the neirest town or trainstation in Aurillac (I ask a small fee for that, money is not part of my comfort).
    The area is real french countryside, forest and water all around. Beautiful small villages which breath the medieval way of a simple but honoust lifestyle.
    Since I live alone here my request for help is also based on connecting with another human being.
