Hey ! I just bought a farm in Jura, France, a nice and preserved region, famous for cheese. I'm turning it into a place for mindfulness and nature retreats. For the incoming months, there will be a lot to do here with renovation and a bit of gardening.
The place is really quiet here, in French countryside. If you're looking for city life, that's definitely not the place for you ! ;-) But if you're looking for calm, regenerating and authentic French experience, you're more than welcome.
You'll have an authentic french experience in the countryside far from city life. I can share meditation, guitar playing, cooking, tips for things to see around and a good company ! I can also provide travel tips as I went for a world tour last year, experimenting lots of things.
I traveled quite a bit and already had several work exchange and volunteer experiences, so I know what a traveler might expect and how to run things smoothly. I'll do my best to make your stay as nice as possible. I don't expect you to provide a big load of work and you don't need particular skills. Just do things as well as you can, mindfully, taking care of your body, as a responsible and grown-up person and we'll get along really well ! I need help renovating an old farm, so it will be a lot of woodworking, fixing / moving things, painting, cleaning and also gardening. Nothing really technical but you have to be in good shape (you don't need to be a Rambo). We'll "work" on a "5 hours a day, 5 days a week" basis.
English, French, Spanish and a bit of Japanese !
For accomodation, I got a cosy private bedroom for 1 person or a couple at my flat. Or you can camp at the farm in your van or tent. For food, I provide veggie lunch and diner with mostly organic and local food, everything home cooked. I don't take breakfast (intermittent fasting), but I can provide food if you do.
