  • Description


    We are creating a healing sanctuary where we offer fasting and various nature cures in a beautiful old farm.
    We already hold regular events like a 2-week fast, and a grape cure in September.

    Please apply only if you like physical work. Cleaning nature, shrubs, weading, moving stones...
    You will have free access to the yoga room, the backswing inversion table, chi machine, colonic irrigation, trampoline and floatation tent.

    On site we have dogs, horses, goats and donkeys.

    Food is pure vegetarian (vegan is possible), strictly no alcohol and non-smoking. You might do your own cooking most of the time as I don't live onsite.

    The farm is one hour drive from the beautiful city of Bordeaux, in the Gironde region.
    The area has lots of places to visit. Castles, lakes, vineyards...

    Just another experience I suppose... !
    Now, end of September, the place is quiet and preparing for the winter break.
    We've had an orgy of fruit on the farm all summer, now coming to an end with the last grapes and figs.
    On the farm lives a 63 year-old lady who only speaks French. Sometimes other friends are there for short stays.
    Other friends who work outside come for dinner and to spend the night a few times a week.
    I the owner, live half a mile down the road. I come to the farm almost every day.

  • Help


    The main help will be to help us with the general tasks:
    - participate in the renovation and construction of the farm (siding, stone wall, ...)
    - clean the environment by cutting trees, preparing/organizing storage of firewood, pruning hedges and shrubs, trimming the grass, trying to make everything more beautiful and clean.
    - general cleaning of the house

    We also welcome help with social media communication, website content, translations, editing...

    Any idea on what to do and how to do it is welcome. We are very easy going and will seldom control your work.
    We trust people that they do their best.

    We just want the place to be clean and nice as much as possible.
