    Good Host
  • Description


    Come and join our art-eco-project in Normandie!
    We are Mehdi (28 french) and Nela (24 romanian), we've been workawayers for many years and now that we got our place in the countryside, we want to open it for others who want to join a community project in the rural normandie.
    We recently got a big house with a lot of land and a small lake and huge potential. We would need help to redecorate the house and build little wooden houses/wagons where we can welcome more people in the future, for music, yoga, art retreats and festivals.
