We are a couple with a son of 22 month living close to Monpazier in the beautiful Dordogne in the south west of France. The area is famous for its middle age villages and castels and it is pretty laid back and protected from covid and co.
Our place is a big field in the middle of the forest where we live a calm and simple life close to nature and animals. We love to go for long walks in the forest with our dogs and to take time for our four horses. We plan to have goats as well and other child friendly animals in the future.
Every animal here gets a voice and we do some animal communication regularly to be sure there are no misunderstandings...
We can not imagine a life without horses. Jana has been teaching both classical training and natural horsemanship for a long time and is now working on a new holistic approach to being with horses. But as a new professional horse project will take some of her time we will need somebody to give us a hand with our son; to play with him, paint, make music, build a tipi... so if you think about joining our family you really need to enjoy being around kids (sometimes there are friends joining him) and to making up new funny things (in addition to being very responsible, of course:))
We try to eat a plant based diet in the meantime and in the future we would like to produce as much as possible of our food in our property. If you like to cook you would be very welcome to prepare lunch and teach us some vegan recipes.
Some experiences with horses and dogs would be great as well, so you could take care of the animals when we want to spent a week end at the ocean.
To be happy at our place you also need to enjoy spending some time on your own, just reading, meditating, hiking, riding or writing a book...
Our place is very peaceful and we are looking forward to meeting responsible people with love for animals and respect for nature - party people and smokers should look for another host.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are talking french, german, english, spanish and portuguese so you can practice the language you choose. You can also learn more about horse training, riding, or simply connecting to horses. Jana has been a certified centered riding instructor and is using an approach today that is similar but much more profound.
A sensitive and empathic rider can have a riding horse for hacking out, and as the other three horses start their training (two starters and a second chance in life) there will be lot’s of opportunity for hands on learning if you are interested to spent your free time with the horses.
Childcare : Minimum stay of one month. Open end if everybody is happy.
You need to love kids !!! You should not be smoking !
You should be interested in alternative ways in raising responsible kids... In our filosophy every kid learns at it’s own rythm, should be stimulated but never pushed or juged. A maximum of time should be spend in outdoor activities, in the woods or with sports, with the hands in the earth and interacting with animals. If our son Noah could decide he would even sleep outside so he would be quicker in the morning getting there...you should be physically fit and fast as he is.
It should not be a disaster to chenge once a diaper even if you normally do not need to do it as Jana is working with the horses close by so she is almost always available in case of need or doubt.
You should feel fine to animate some music or painting activities with a small group of children, too.
You need a driving licence (your own car would be best but we can organise one for the right person) as transport possibilities are almost inexistant.
As Noah grows up with french, german and english you should ideally speak these three langages too, but at least some basic french would be good to feel well living in the region.
For working hours we are very flexible, as Thibaut is an indepentant worker too so we can always arrange for your freetime, sightseeing etc.
In case you think this could be right for you just contact us so we can set up a video call. We are looking forward to getting to know you!

Internet access is limited at the moment but will be installed via the fix line in both locations in September. We will see for the performance but the neighbors are very satisfied since the optical fiber cable arrived to the center of the village recently.
Our place offers 10hectares of land so you will definitely find a nice corner for your campervan.
