Hi, I am Geert. A few years ago, after a lot of personal and spiritual growth, I changed my life completely. I sold everything in Belgium, to create a better world in the south of France. I became vegan, eat healthy, use no chemical products on me or in the house / garden and try to find the natural remedie for every problem. I found this amazing place in the middle of nature with stunning views on a south orientated hill-side. The place is perfect for what I want to achieve : inspire people to aim for more quality in their life, not by material stuff but by awareness, love and connecting with the universe. In the future I want to organise retreats, and maybe coaching and healing weeks. I want to be self-sufficient in food and energy as much as possible. Therefore I am creating a permaculture garden, recycle things to build energy-generators, make art and do sometimes meditave walks (to keep up the spirit ;-)). I want to be as free as
possible of the demanding and money driven society we are living in, although some rules are necessary to make living together possible. People who are resonating on these words, wants to help out, like real nature, are non-smokers, vegans and respect the rules are welcome to give form to this dream.

They are plenty nice things to visit in the region. The small villages organizes festivities almost every week : festivals, markets, flee markets.... Abriecosy is located 3 km from the village Bargemon, 30 min from gorges du Verdon, Fréjus. A day nice, Marseille, st-tropez, saint Raphael , is all in the possibilities. Public transportation is not the easiest way in Bargemon, you have to make a reservation for a bus. The easiest way is have your own transportation, but don't worry if you have not , because I myself like to hike, visit things, go to culture festivals, or the organic shop etc...too, so there will be plenty opportunities for you to get out.
