  • Description


    Looking for energetic and handy people. If you enjoy the outdoors, gardening and/or have general building or DIY skills it would be helpful.

    At the moment we need most help finishing some secondary buildings, painting shutters, applying ecologic materials to the walls, building stone walls and starting the veggie-garden!

    We live in the middle of the National Park, so this could be perfect for you if you like to spend time in nature. There are many amazing trails starting right outside of the house. There is also the possibility of climbing, picking mushrooms, truffles, wild herbs, and much more.

    We are opening a small B&B-Retreat Center with arts, ceramics, yoga, taichi and plenty of activities in the Luberon National Park. We started with this adventure last year so there is still a lot to be done. 

    We would like to become as self-sufficient as possible and we are starting a bio-garden where we will try to grow our own veggies with as little water as possible following Pascal Poot 's technique.

    If you don't mind some physical work and getting your hands dirty please contact us!

    We would like ~25-hours of help a week Monday to Friday, typically starting at 9 am, your afternoons will be for you to explore and enjoy!

    If this sounds like fun to you, then send us a message!

    About us:
    We are Neu and Jon. We have been traveling and volunteering in farms for many years and that changed our lives forever. We have finally decided to settle down in Provence and we are working hard trying to make this place ready for the next season. We love ceramics (opening a small atelier this year), gardening, yoga, climbing, holistic dance, dying with natural materials and eating healthy.

    Auribeau (900m), Castellet (2km), Saignon (6km), Apt (10km), Buoux (10km), Bonnieux (18km), Roussillon (21km), Gordes (29km).

    We always go to the Saturday market in Apt and you are welcome to join us whenever you want! There you can go for a coffee, get some groceries or just walk around and enjoy the wonderful vibe of the market.

    Knowledge of marketing and Seo could be appreciated!

    Please let us know if you think you could be interested!

    Looking forward to your messages!*️️️️️️️️️️

    Neu and Jon.
