  • Description


    We arrived in our old farm in Dordogne near Sarlat - a beautiful and very appreciated medieval town- a year ago with our 4 children and all our animals (a dog, a pig, cats, hens and ducks). We have decided to renovate the buildings in an environment and human friendly way and to slowly develop a permacultural farm. We speak fluent English and are all very keen on welcoming international visitors to learn from their culture and share our own. If you like nature, family life, building, gardening and challenges of all sorts you can join us in this exciting adventure! We'll be really happy to welcome you!

    We are a big family with four children aged from 5 to 12 . They'll be happy - and so will we - to help with language learning and to include you in our family life. I speak fluent English as I grew up a few years in England and in Canada when I was a child. The children went in an international school for a few years and appreciate cultural diversity.

  • Help


    At the moment we are focusing our efforts on finishing off the house and planting trees of all kinds. We plant trees that bees appreciate to support their needs. That's just the first step and we'll update the description every time we move to the next :-)

    Our farm isn't in a village which means that you'll need to be driven around if you want to visit the region. We'll be happy to help and to take you to nice places and walks. We also have bikes you can use. The region is a beautiful one with many castles and caves to visit. You'll just need to let us know what you want to do.
