  • Description


    I live in the south suburb of Bordeaux (12 minutes by train, the station is quite close to our home) in a house built by ourselves on 1000 m2. We are next to one large natural space (wood, ponds). And also not very far from the highway which goes to Arcachon and the Pyla Dune and the ocean.

    My main interest is about the roots of the ecological crisis and how we can change our civilization to a more human one.

    I love to travel and I especially love French Polynésia.

    At home I need some help to renovate a part of my house, with wood, clay and other natural materials.

  • Help


    I need help to finish some work in the house. People having some knowledge of carpentry and/or electricity will be appreciated! I also need help planning and sanding boards to help me in my artistic work. I can no longer do this alone because I have back pain. I also need to brush the planks of the cladding of the house.
    I want to improve my English with hosts whose native language is English. So I will only receive hosts who speak English very well.
