  • Description

    Description

    Join our 'makers' village in the Bourgogne. We, my daughter (11 years old) and me (49), are Dutch and 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 creative but most of all handy persons who love kids and animals to help us finish the house, renovate the other buildings, create artistic objects or cook vegetarian meals. We have 3 horses a dog and a cat. I work with my horses in freedom.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have 3 horses and work in freedom with them, i can teach you a new method to work with animals based on harmony and frendship rather than dominance. We can teach you French or Dutch. Learn what it is like to live on a farm in France. You can also use our barn if you like to work on your own project. If you want to look for a property to buy yourself i am happy to share my knowledge on renovation and do's and don'ts when buying a property in France.

    Help

    we are mostly looking for a handy person or an inventor. Someone who likes to create lowtech or diy things or land art and someone who can help renovating and reparing stuff. Someone who likes to cook vegetarian meals is also very very welcome. I would like to start building a huge tire au lienne / slider. and a podium in the barn. furthermore there is a lot of work in the house to be done like painting, plumbing and creating a kitchen as I am building a tiny house and renovating my farm. cutting the hays around the fields /repaire the fences. If you like to work with the horses, it is possible, you do not have to have experience, but in that case, and to ensure your safety it is important you're willing to learn and are open to suggestions.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    small caravane (Adria or Biod) with beautiful scenery next to nature reservate. It can rain a lot, so please make sure you bring old and/or warm cloths and boots. In the winter the caravan is in a hangar for shelter. As we live on a hill, often there is wind. In summer that makes it cooler and less flies, but in winter is can be cold.

    i am not a good cook but you´re welcome to eat with us or i can provide all the ingredients if you like to do the cooking. i am vegetarian so no meat sorry but ofcourse no problem if you like to add it for yourself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Bourgogne is known for its nature, forests and beautiful skies. There is not much to do around here, but that is the beauty of it. it is completely still and quiet here. the best village nearby is Autun or Montceau les mines. There is a TGV station at 30 minutes. We live very isolated the nearest shop is at 7 km, having your own transportcar is really an advantage if you want to do some sightseeing. The internet works most of the time, but it can happen that it does not work, we are working on improving this but if you're really reliant on internet, make sure you have your own hotspot.
