we need help to build a fence in the forest for our horses and alpacas. The forest must first be cleared to build the fence. Dangerous work does not have to be done unless experience is available.
If you like to be in nature, then contact us.
((At the moment) we mainly need experienced craftsmen to help us build various projects. For this we would be glad to pay and would require you to stay until it is finished
Our current projects are:
1. install a wooden intermediate floor (50m2) in a steel hangar (105m2)
2. if the intermediate floor is installed, a saddle chamber of 1,5x2m made of wood
3. hay rack 1,80x1,80m build from wood
---> If you think that you can fulfill this task, then please contact us)
We are Kusi and Mélanie, a Swiss-German couple living in France with our 20 dogs, 6 alpacas, 2 ponies, 5 cats and chickens. We believe very strongly in destiny!
We are teaching dog owners in dog language and how they can become a leader for their dog. This place is a very secluded little paradise where we are living in a dog pack and we learn daily from our dogs. One thing to note: We do not need any help working with the dogs, as they are very special. These aren’t ones that you will be able to pet and take on walks until you are truly one of the pack.
Our Alpacas are helping us to calm the clients dogs down and occasionally they will have foals. With the wool I spin or make blankets.
You don't have to be an animal freak - we are also interested in carpenters, cleaners, permaculture and/or handcraft people and a lot of other qualities :-)
You need to have your personal health insurance and be physically quite fit.
Please note that it's not allowed to smoke in the guest rooms.

Help in the house
In our "little paradise" you will learn a lot about animal language and how they like to live. You will see the influence from human energies in the animals’ behavior and learn how to become a leader. You can also learn a lot about taking care of a property in the country: weeding, gardening, building, etc. While we do speak French, we speak Swiss-German around the house. We have no problem speaking French with you if you can already and want to improve, but we cannot teach as it is not our native tongue. You also could learn to spin wool and some things about Peru, Alpacas, Shamans and Indians. We also love cooking, baking and exchanging recipes!

What else ….
There is public transport available into Aurillac, which is 25 minutes away from us, and we can pick you up from the station there. We live in a very quiet (isolated) place with only 16 habitants on 1km2, the place to be in the Cantal. Mountain bike available, nice hiking region, near to the Way of St James (20km away from Conques). Expect to spend most of your time here in nature and away from the city. While we can certainly help you to take a trip while you are here, we cannot go back and forth from the station every weekend. There is no public transport that passes through here, only a taxi service that can be requested.
