  • Description


    Hello !

    We are very lucky to have a lot of spaces to share and a very nice view !

    We are family, living with others friends and cats, chicken, falcon kestrels and lots of birds...

    the farm is very old and need a lot's of work of renovation, we product vegetables, plants, fruits and wheat for us and all people who stop at our farm.

    we have already installed a large collective kitchen in the barn
    In the house we share the bathroom, a large games room, a large library and vinyl collection and internet access.
    We like to philosophize, play games, do experimental music, create stuff and stuff (and take funny photos !)

    the farm is on the edge of the eurobike 6 and we want it open to all travelers by bike. We already host with the network of hospitality "warm shower". Most of the time they arrive in the evening and leave on the roads the next morning. Sometimes they stay a day or two to take a break from their trip or exchange more with us.
    We want to operate on self-management and welcome at "pay what you want" all those who wish to make a stop here

    we seek autonomy as much as possible and want to live in an ecological way.

    We don't speak and read english very well but we like to learn !

    We like to hosts families.

    We experience autonomous learning with children, unschooling : we answer their questions and teach them what they want when they ask and we regularly offer them activities.
