  • Description

    Description

    Its a small organic farm at the edge of the rainforest with amazing vieuws at 500 m elevation. Its very remote with a perfect climate and many birds, no dangerous animals. No shops bars and very few neighbours, most of the time I live there alone, 8 km from the nearest beachvillage on the westcoast of Dominica, between Guadeloupe and Martinique; a 2 km walk from where the accesroad is broken...
    Full of fruits and vegetables, a simple wooden house,and a guestcottage, outhouse and outside showers.
    The help will consist mainly of cleaning the bush and maintanance of the trees.

    Accommodation

    Shared accomodation in the main house, (only the helpers will sleep in the one large room) and, if available, a small cottage, porches for lounging, food comes mainly from the land and we can cook together or I cook.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    For the time the road is broken and not much transport to go to the beachvillage Mero and all the beautiful sights in Dominica, hopefully this will get fixed at one point...but its extreemly beautiful for hiking and riverbathing and nature lovers.
