  • Description


    In a lovely place with old cork trees and spring water, we are a small community building an Oasis for the next generation.
    We live with 4 adults, 4 children, 3 cats, 1 dog and lots of wild animals ;)
    Coming from childhood dream to live in a treehouse, we start this project 5 years ago, in a small caravan in the forest, on the slope off a mountain. We are restoring a farm to create a refuge in a very privileged place to care for people and especially children.

    In january 2020, we are looking for handy people to finishing to build the yoga room under the round house, and also pizzeria project and kids workshop in the village.
    Sometime you can play with the kids or do some gardening.
    The food is vegetarian and accommodation is camping: you can stay in a gipsy caravan, tente, tipi or in a thatched hut. You can use the hot shower and kitchen. It is simple, but lovely, specially in summer or spring time.

    For long term, we are looking for permanent gardener in permaculture management.

    Me Fred, Alice, Olmo, Hari, Kali, Olwen and Barbara are waiting for you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will benefit from multi-language-kids speaking, living on top of a beautiful mountain, near to a castle and to medieval city. You can stay in an old english caravan, with a permaculture landscaping design outside. You can also learn about water management, gardening, recycling, upcycling, wood working and about new cultures and languages - because you will stay in touch with people from many places, so you can try new foodies too. You can swim in a natural lac or river, but the mainly thing is that you will be close to wild nature in a small paradise.

  • Help


    We usually work 4-5 in the day and it can be in the Village, in an atelier, or in the farm.
    The tasks are kind of simple, you can take care of the kids, make some artworks, help us with the workshops and also with cooking and construction.
    Sometimes, if you want to, maybe you can play some music for the people or take some pictures.
