  • Description


    Greetings Im Zoë!
    Here is an old water mill in beautiful natural haven nestled deep in the remote area of the Corbieres Hills in S/W France.
    London born but been in France for over 30 years so in fluent French and English
    Ideally I am looking for a couple or individual for a long term stay. ( Own accommodation and vehicle preferable though not obligatory)
    My project is to develop and upgrade the vegetable garden and orchard into self -sufficiency. And develop the herb garden.

    This is an opportunity for people to get a real taste of what living in Nature is all about and to use their experience, skills and creativity in organic gardening, fruit trees, DIY, irrigation system, fence building, wood cutting, aromatic herbs, jam and syrup making....etc etc.
    This was suit people who are dynamic and yet content to have solitary moments.

    For the last 7 years I have been renting a room/rooms on an rental platform and am a Super Host! This helps financially yet I live on a shoestring budget and live simply on a vegetarian diet. Also as an artist I have run workshops in the Joy of Creativity. And I have hosted Chi Qung, polyphonic singing,clown and meditation workshops something I would like to continue to develop.

    Also there is an old bread oven here that now needs repairing. But there has been many pizza events here...

    Although its remote here there is a lively community here to get involved in. There are singing,yoga, dance, Tai Chi workshops happening.
    What else can I say...Are you ready for an adventure?
