  • Description

    Description

    WE, Marion and Clément, are a couple with a little boy, Eliott (2 1/2 years old) living in an old farm, in the middle of nowhere. We are surrounded by forests and fields at an altitude of 1250 meters. We have great view overlooking the mountains of the Massif Central. The place feels wild and pure. We`re totally isolated from other houses and roads : there is a 1,4 km dirt track to reach our farm from the main road. We are actually situated on a pass called «col de la Charousse» which divides the Ardèche department from the Haute-Loire department.

    OUR PROJECT is to renovate the house and the barn. We want to open a hosting place, a place where we share ideas and energies.
    First we renovate the house where we live in. Then the barn, where we will hold children scolar trips, holiday camps, workshops (clowning, drawing, chess, cooking), concerts, chess tournaments, exhibitions...

    A BIT MORE ABOUT US :
    Marion is an drawing artist, comic author and wild herbs lover. Clément heads a non-profit organisation which uses clowning and chess workshops in under-priveledged, clown, and street art and jazz passionate. Eliott is a 2 years old boy, smiling and exploring.
    We mainly eat vegetarian and local food which is only organic. A weekly barbecue can be organised though!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We both speak french, english and spanish. Clément is a french and english native speaker. I have french as my native tongue.
    I think our vision of the world, and Life, is, maybe special and rare, but personal and it's what we'd like to share with you !
    The strong relation to nature of this place, and the countryside rythm of life of the area, are the main reasons we've chosen to live here.
