    Description

    Hello, we are Benjamin and Manjula. We live on land of just over one hectare near Fourtou in the Hautes Corbières. It is an hour and a half southeast of Carcassonne. You locate. Here nature is preserved: Immense forest of chestnut and beech trees and some pastures. We have two large lush vegetable gardens to feed us and we are currently renovating our wooden house on stilts. Technique: beam posts, wood wool insulation. We made our sublime yurt two years ago and we now live in it. We do everything ourselves from A to Z and we like it. We need help and sharing. We are used to working in groups, with people from all over the world, because we are volunteers in Amma's NGO for a good part of the year. We speak French, English, German and Spanish. And we train in the language of the heart 😅 Welcome home!

    Bonjour, nous sommes Benjamin et Manjula. Nous habitons un terrain d’un peu plus d’un hectare près de Fourtou dans les Hautes Corbières. C’est à une heure et demie au sud est de Carcassonne. Vous situez.
    Ici la nature est préservée:
    D’Immense forêt de châtaigniers et de hêtres et quelques pâturages.
    On a deux grands jardins potagers luxuriants pour nous nourrir et on rénove actuellement notre maison en bois sur pilotis.
    Technique : poteaux poutre, isolation laine de bois.
    On a fabriqué notre yourte sublime il y a deux ans et on habite dedans du coup.
    On fait tout nous mêmes de A à Z et on aime ça.
    On a besoin d’aide et de partage.
    On a l’habitude de travailler à plusieurs, avec des gens du monde entier, car on est bénévoles dans l’ONG d’Amma une bonne partie de l’année.
    On parle français, anglais, allemand et espagnol. Et on s’entraîne à la langue du coeur 😅
    Bienvenus chez nous!
