  • Description



    Since July 2017, I'm living full time in Normandy where I bought (in 2011) a little farm. I'd like to animate this place by hosting for one or two weeks travellers, artists, that could help me renewing the place, or giving it a new soul. It's a very small village, few people, a lot of nature. I'm currently having big work done, so the place is in great change.

    Condé sur Ifs is a very small village. You're in the "real life" of French contryside : no tourists, just the normal life of a small village. People are often friendly, and happy to see foreign people come there.

    you can take the train to Lisieux (biggest city around) or Mezidon, ( we're at 2hours by train from Paris ).

    If you prefer the beach, we're at 30km from the seaside.

  • Help


    The help you can do really depends of who you are, and what you'd like to do.
    I'm renewing an old barn, but I need help to make it look better now : Clean the place and make it look better. I also need help for painting the walls in the house, and help me sort my stuff, and throw away or give what is not any more necessary to me.
    If you are interested, don't hesitate :) to come or to contact me.
    This is not a close list. It just gives you an idea of the priorities of the moment :)

  • Accommodation


    The house has heating, a shower, warm water, toilets, etc.
    You will have a separate bedroom, and share most of the time the diner with me if I'm at home. There is also a couch downstairs if you prefer. The place is gay friendly.
    The workawayer room has two separate beds, in order to possibly host 2 persons at the same time.
    to come here, the railway station is Mezidon-Canon (it's on the Paris-Caen line). I'll go by car to the railways station to catch you.
    Please keep in mind that you're invited in my place. don't invite friends without asking me before, and keep the place clean, even if I'm not home.
