  • Description


    It is a small eco place, where we as a larger community garden, grow trees and do art and parties !
    as for myself the only one living there now, I am a 30 year old man, loving music and seaside ! ;)
    the project is to create a place where three alternative family's can live ! so if you fancy living full time in belle ile let's meet for start ! ;)

    the place is surrounded by nature, with great big pine trees and loads of birdlife, we use no machines (or very occasionally) and try to eat as local as we can ! if you want to ramble around the island, its great views onto the ocean, and small cute valleys. I will be so happy to show you around for I love to walk everyday ! ;) looking forward to hosting you soon ! PIkorua

    PS: now there is also a big project of finishing the house (inside jobs), such as clay walls, wooden furniture to build, etc !!!!!
