  • Description

    Description

    After 30 years in Berlin and a couple of years on the road in a van in South and Central America I realised I wanted a change of lifestyle. We only have 90 years, maybe 100, why not try and do something completely new for now? A vision was born while I was attending a yoga teacher training in Guatemala back in 2019. Fast forward march 2021 when I bought a beautiful little farm in the heart of Brittany - a region I had never been before in my life. I am trying to pursue a more sustainable lifestyle surrounded by a small bunch of chicken, three cats, magical gardens, vegetable patches and fruit trees. I'm dreaming up a place here that has the potential to leave a positive impact on everyone who is staying or passing by.
    I'm running a small BnB and am starting to transform an old barn into a space for yoga, meditation, workshops, small events and more.

    Travellers will be able to enjoy living in the breton countryside, find some peace and immerse themselves into the unspoilt nature around here – far off the hustle and the routines of the city life. There are several hikes in the area, the largest lake of Brittany is not too far, one can stroll through farmers markets and charming little towns.
    I can share with you everything I know about growing veggies, cooking, preserving, running a place like this, hosting and how to tame chicken :)

    Help

    As I am only just getting started there is a lot to do requiring a variety of abilities, so if you can tick some of these boxes, great!
    The help that is required relates to gardening (traditional and permaculture based), animal care, eco-construction, general maintenance and cleaning, harvesting, preserving produce towards the end of the season. Also, your own ideas and visions on how to transform and elevate the farm are always welcome and appreciated!
