  • 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, falcon kestrels and lots of birds...

    We product vegetables plants and fruits for us and all people (mainly bicycle travelers) who stop at our farm.
    At least we also want to product cereals for the bread. Before we have a lot of work of renovation !
    we seek autonomy as much as possible and we want to do a sustainable project

    There is a big collective vegetarian 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 !)

    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.

    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 free price all those who wish to make a stop here

    - As well as for the renovation of the farm, construction sites are very diverse

    So welcome joiners or anyone wishing to work wood, we need you for the ceiling of the bike-metal workshop/ sleeping floor
