  • Description


    We have just bought a beautiful secluded property in the Lot department, in the south-west of France, with a very large 7 bedroom house + a 4 bedroom country cottage in the heart of the Causses du Quercy Natural Park, after two full years to renovate, we want to finally create our vegetable garden. We are also renovating a huge breeding pen for some chickens and ducks to avoid predators.
    Our financial means being very reduced by this big credit allowing to buy this paradise, we seek volunteers to spend a convivial stay, in a happy family, epicurean and cultivated in the heart of the local social fabric! (my wife, our daughters of 12 and 17 years old, our dog, our cat and me)
    We have already received dozens of workwayers and we keep with them strong bonds of friendship ...
    Things to do are neither complicated nor difficult, just build a place open to everyone!

    Vegetarian and vegans friends, we eat a lot of vegetables, we love it, very varied, but also meat cooked in many ways, we do a lot of grilling. We often kill the animals ourselves (pigs, chickens, rabbits), here, the conviviality is turned around good gastronomic aperitif with charcuterie, foie gras, good wines, etc ... and we launch a lot!
    If you know how to make a difference, you are welcome!

    Thank you
