    We are a family of 4: Alex, Estelle, Valentine, 6 years-old and Jonathan 3 years old
    We travelled in 2011 around New Zealand by bicycle for one year and worked in organic farms as volunteers (WWOOFing)
    We would be glad to host now volunteer, interested in eco building, gardenning, and/or like baby-sitting.
    We just finish to build our ecohouse, and there are many things to do!
    At the moment, we are building a dry stone wall and we need help.
    On this land we have got also a little garden, where there also interesting things to do!
    We've got a little girl and a little boy and we need help for a few hours of baby-sitting, and helping for the house
    You are interested? Welcome!;-)

    Nous sommes une famille de 4: Alex, Estelle, Valentine (6 ans), Jonathan (3 ans)
    Après avoir nous même voyagé en vélo et fait du WWOOfing dans des fermes biologiques pendant 1 an en Nouvelle Zélande, nous sommes heureux de pouvoir accueillir à notre tour des volontaires intéressés par l'éco construction, le jardinage, et/ou qui aiment s'occuper des enfants.
    Nous avons juste finit de construire notre maison écologique et il y a beaucoup à faire et à découvrir!
    Nous sommes actuellement en train de construire un mur en pierre sèches et nous avons besoin d'un coup de main!
    Sur ce même terrain nous avons aménagé un potager où il y a de quoi s'occuper aussi!
    Nous avons également une petite fille et un petit garçon et avons besoin de baby-sitting, et d'aide pour s'occuper à la maison.
    Vous êtes intéressés? Vous êtes les bienvenus!

    Coming in the south west of France, in our little village (500 inhabitants) is an exciting experience!
    We like our region and would be happy to show you around the place. Estelle is working at the Museum of Foie Gras, and knows quiet well about the places to see.

    There are many things to do and visit from spring to autumn: local markets (for tasting our french specialities: tourtières, prunes, wines, etc), concerts (traditionals songs in occitan, which is our local language), visiting villages made 800 years-ago, etc. And also being in touch with our friends and family to exchange about local life.
