    Description

    Hello everyone, We are 3 neighboring families, 3 houses/farms wishing to welcome workawayers. 2 families of 4 with children ranging from 2 to 9 years old, and a couple of men.
    We are doing differents jobs: electrician, teachers, florist, and one herbalist/distillation farmer.
    We live in a beautiful green valley and we all have lots of projects going on: house renovation, vegetable garden, animals, various crafts. Our wish is to be able to offer you to help each other according to your desires, our schedules... The idea being to share time together and to make offer the opportunity to discover life in the countryside.
    We expect workawayers to be dynamic people, with a sense of initiative and autonomy, loving nature and sharing simple moments with ours families.

    We are committed to sharing our moments of life with the workayers (visits, shared meals, etc.). We can also make you enjoy all the activities that we are passionate about: renovation, plant-based production (one of us is a producer of essential oils and apple juice). Kitchen, pottery, vegetable garden, look after the animals, playing with the childrens, are all some of proposals that we can make to you...

    We would like to welcome people for at least 2 weeks, in order to have time to get to know each other and learn to work together. The maximum duration is not determined, this can be discussed together!

    We, one of the couple had already travelled and helped in farms as volunteers : growing vegetables, picking up and distilating medicinal plants, buding houses with natural materials and so on... We also received people to help us during the renovation of our house. So, we are used to meet different people.
