We are a little family of 2 kids (9 and 10 years old), my 2 parents and me of 30 years old. We are developping this old farm using permaculture; in the long term I hope to make it become an educative farm for the people from cities. I need hands and knowledge to make it happen ! At the same time, I travelled a lot those last years and keeping a connection with outsiders is very important to me. The travellers who like nature and gardening will feel great here. I will do my best to make it a thrilling great experience for her/him.
This is winter until April here,and it's time for woodcutting and other tough stuffs, need strong arms and will of steel !
We have a little family life with 2 kids, my 2 parents and me. As a world traveller, sharing is a big concern, I will be happy to show you around in our wonderful region and talk french as much as you can ! There is a lot of amazing places to discover like La camargue, les cevennes, les gorges du tarn, les calanques de marseille, Avignon, Nimes.. quite a lot ! Once a week we can go for a little tour. Social life is pretty limited here in our countryside, so it's more suitable to people who enjoy calm and nature. I like to teach my language, so if you want to learn I can give 1 hour per day for it. I like to cook as well and share recipes. Main issue is to devellop organic gardens near the house; it's still the start so it's about creation and hardwork. I'm still learning a lot about nature and it's very exciting. I'm open kind of guy, I will not ask for a special type of people like we ask a program or like a robot, you're welcome here. I just want to talk with you and see if it's the good environment for you; so both of us will have a great time.
Open minded, nature lover, creative, active. The main thing for me is to welcome someone who is interested in organic farming. Someone who is ready to do common farmwork such as wood cutting, gardening, basic construction, using farm tools... It's okay for me if you come here to learn as well. I will be happy to share the few I know ! I need active hands, creative ideas and lot of sharing ! The more you have to share, the best we can make this farm alive. It's the starting point of a big permaculture (organic farming) project, i'm very excited about it and I'm working hard to make it real. If it sounds good to you, please join for as long as you want and let's make it ! We can learn together by experiencing. If you have organic farming knowledge it will be much appreciated.

We offer you a cosy caravan with heater, tent extension, 4 places to sleep indoor, cooking area, fridges, water and electricity. Your accomodation will be in a field near the river around 100 meters from the house, neighbours are cows, birds and very few villagers, coutryside style ! You can use the laptop and internet in my room if needed otherwise Wifi is available in the main building. For food, the caravan is well made with fridges and cooking area. Perfect for those who needs a quiet stay along with nature. Our first experiences of gardening are doing great so fresh food is here.
I plan to fill the guest's fridge once a week, the caravan is well equiped for cooking. If this system is not fitting to my guest, I'm flexible about it and we can sped the cooking time together.
There are bycicles on disposal so you can go to the nearest villages, grocery shop is just at 3 kilometers. People who like to hike will enjoy all the trekking paths around as we are in a little hilly area called Les Cevennes. Local buses can bring you to main cities around for very cheap (1,5 euro). Natural spots in the region and old styled villages are the main attractions. I'm looking for someone who can give me a hand at max 5 hours a day depending of the tasks of the day (sometimes less according to other things I have to do). I work almost everydays of the week depending to the seasons and my schedule, the plan is not to overload you with work but to give a hand when required. I use to work like that before while travelling, now it's my turn to host ;)
