Three families live in this "hameau", we share many moments and projects together. Our part is an old farm which was a family residential house. Corinne (me) decided to bet on it at 55, after a good life as an architect, mother of three sons, etc... Since two years many people went through to help her transform this old farm on a lifely place. Julia is working with her since three months as a specialist of restauration and together, they organize cooperating projects. We reach to go slowly and with simplicity to a "smooth" life in a respectfull place.

Improvement in french. When a cooperative project, it’s possible to learn old building’s techniques, like traditional coating (straw and lime).
We are working to restore an ancient farm in “Les Cévennes” (south of France, close to Nîmes). Many works are planned (construction, landscaping, clearing… with a permaculture philosophy) and they will be organized in two ways :
From an individual way (maintenance work) or into a cooperative form (group of volunteers hosted for a weekend or a week).
You will be hosted in a double or a triple room during the cooperative project. Single room or complete apartments are available when an individual project or for a longer stay.
We’re located near two cities at 5 km. A bus allows to reach easily the train station in Nîmes. "Les Cévennes" is located between sea (35km) and mountains 20 km), it's a place full of alternatives ways of life. We have three different kitchens and bathrooms wich could offer autonomy ant intimacy when wanted. Some of us talk english and we like to mix people and culture.
