  • Description


    Join our 'makers' village in the Bourgogne. We, my daughter (11 years old) and me (49), live on a farm. We have 19 hectares of land around the farm and several buildings. Our goal is to create a ´makers place´ in a rural area where everyone has his own space to work/ create but we share a barn atelier. For the moment it is just me and my daughter but we love to share our special place. The farm is located on a hill with beautiful views and next to a nature reservate. We are looking for a creative but most of all handy person who loves kids and animals to help us finish the house, renovate the other buildings, create artistic objects. We have 4 horses a dog and a cat. I work with my horses in freedom.
