    Beschreibung

    We are a Franco-Belgian couple, sculptor and yoga teacher, wanting to be part of a necessary ecological transition...for this we have just bought a former convent in a small village in Dordogne (south of France) to build a place of life for many, which has meaning, in a search for simplicity and for external and internal ecology, a place to recharge and welcome yoga retreat (we want to create a retreat center).... a place open to everything that will be consistent with our vision of being in the world. We will restore the chapel to create a café and a place where we sell Local products ...also restoring a house for yoga and meditation, and create a vegetable garden in permaculture.
    La Dordogne is a region rich in architectural heritage with a preserved nature, it has completely seduced us to carry out our project. The convent is a building from the middle of the 19th century, in good condition, requiring just interior fittings to revive it. Its basic function lends itself naturally to a life shared in simplicity and happiness.

    The location of the convent makes it a perfect place for lovers of old stones and history, in the picturesque Bastides region.We are living just next Beaumont-en-Périgord founded in 1272. With its numerous castles and medieval villages, our region will seduce you. With our knowledge, you will be able to experiment with manual working techniques with Stéphane (stonemason, sculptor, and with empirical knowledge in many crafts) and with Véro the possibility of doing yoga and meditation every day. It is quite obvious that for people who do not speak French it will be a good opportunity to practice and improve your knowledge (we speak perfectly English, a little Danish and a lot of Belgian:)))
    We’re going to do a good job, but we’re going to have a great time!

    We are initially looking for people who are not necessarily qualified but full of enthusiasm to assist us in the realization of a yoga room , and additional bathrooms... then restoring the chapel. It will therefore be questions of masonry work and maneuvering essentially . In a second time we will also need help in the garden for the realization of the vegetable garden in permaculture. Man, woman, genderfluid...what counts is the motivation!!
