  • Description

    Description

    This is an isolated farm in the Vosges mountains. We bought this place forty years ago with my late husband, and we put a lot of love and work into it, to make it a special place. There are a few animals : a great dog and two beautiful cats, a highly intelligent donkey, a wild horse, rabbits, sheeps, gooses, and hens. We rent part of the house to tourists, who come for a few days up to two weeks.
    At the moment, my youngest daughter and her baby are living with me.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Vosges mountains are a great natural place, but it's also a very rich region when it comes to history . The village is at the "door to Alsace" and its wine roads and close to the german border. As I am working in Germany two days a week, you could discover Freiburg and its surroundings as well.

    As in every farm around the world, it never gets boring here. There is always something to do, something to fix, something to build, some animals to take care of. Depending on your skills and your preferences, we could see how we would make your stay as best as possible for both of us.
    I am open for ideas and improvements, so if you'd like to start permaculture in the garden or something like that, you'd be very welcome.

    There are a few empty rooms in the house. You could choose which one you feel best in.
    Regarding food, you would join us as a member of the family, or cook on your own if you prefer (or if you have a very special diet).

    What else ...

    Our place is isolated, almost 3km away from the village. It's perfect for nature lovers and people wanting to escape the rythm of the city.
