    I'm renovating an old farm in Haute-Savoie. I would like it to become a self-sufficient home and transform the land into a permaculture garden.
    The farm is in a small hamlet belonging to a larger village, it is on the edge of the forest and a protected natural reserve.
    There are lots of fabulous walks, climbs to do in the Summer/Autumn, all type of skiing, snowboarding etc during the Winter.
    We are 39kms from the Swiss border, Geneva and 1/2 hour to the well-known Chamonix.
    There are lots to explore in the region.

    I am in my late fifties and realized that the project is much more demanding physically than I thought so would love to find some help.

    We are a non-smoking home so smoking would be ok outside only.

  • Unterkunft


    A cosy wooden bedroom in the farm. 2 meals a day will be provided (breakfast and late lunch, or brunch and dinner). I am mostly vegetarian but my flatmate does cook meat so we are flexible about the food.
    Our food is mostly organic and definitely good quality.

    Yes absolutely campervans are welcome as long as they are not very wide as the path to reach our farm is narrow ... but if they are huge vehicle they can be left just above the farm as there is a free car park there on the edge of the forest.
