    Description

    Come and join our vegan organic homesteading family as we develop our new home and land project surrounded by nature in the French Alps!

    We are in the process of buying a property - not a ruin, but in need of renovations!

    We are a French (father) American (mother) Dutch (oldest child has a Dutch father) family in our 30s with two girls ages 9 & 1. We speak French, English & Dutch. We eat healthy organic vegan whole foods and enjoy a pretty healthy, wholesome lifestyle.

    Our new property needs deep cleaning, and lots of handiwork - everything from gardening and landscaping to plumbing, windows, solar panels, composting toilets and indoor bathrooms, a new kitchen, windows, floors, etc.

    When we are not renovating a house, we enjoy arts & crafts, reading, hiking, cooking, music & movies!

    We will be grateful to have your skills and help! In exchange, you will have good company, a nice surrounding, and healthy wholesome food!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our project will provide a lot of opportunities to develop and hone your existing skills, and can contribute to the building of your portfolio, future work and character references, and perhaps a long lasting friendship!

    We are happy to share what we know about languages, culture, politics, health, cooking & art! Our children are fun, intelligent, creative people who most people with an open heart get a lot of joy from sharing time and space with!

    Accommodation

    We can arrange a nice big tent for you, or perhaps we will have a yurt by this time... perhaps some indoor space will also be available to house you. It will be a bit rustic, at first! We will do our best to make sure you are comfortable within the conditions we can provide! There is one shared bathroom to begin with, and we will build solar and composting bathrooms as one of our first projects!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We can provide transportation to the nearest train station or bus! There is a lot to discover in the area where we live - rock climbing and outdoor activities like hiking and kayaking, parasailing, swimming, markets, chateaus, wine tastings, art events, live music, etc. It is a really nice vibe in the local villages!
