    We are a small community that varies from six to ten individuals and lots of people coming to work here for the spring and summer season. For the spring season we are looking for a gardener.
    During the summer season there are around 60 guest participating into courses ranging from yoga, dancing, painting and horse riding. During their stay the guest will camp on the property, enjoy home grown food, each others company and wonder around in the flower gardens. It is these gardens that need taking care of before the season starts. But besides cleaning and tiding the flower beds, you could possibly help with getting it even more attractive, making a summery of what is all ready there, what might be interesting to change and what to ad to the beds for diversity and even more beauty.

    We would love to invite somebody who likes to live in a social, but small group of people, work outside, eat healthy home made food and wants to see how the blossom start to bloom in the this beautiful place in the nature parc the Morvan, Bourgogne.

    On the 18 hectares of land that surrounds the little chateau is also where we are creating a permaculture garden.

    The food being served is vegetarian and eaten together. Tasks like setting table, cleaning up after meals, keeping the house tidy are part of the daily routine, but besides work there will be plenty of time for a cup of tea, some awesome coffee, time alone or in social setting, enjoying sunrises, sunsets, walking around in the beauty that surrounds the chateau and what else more you could come up with. We do have pets. Three cats and two dogs who are always in for some social time and love to pet.

    The Morvan has a strong folk musical tradition. It uses musical ideas from lots of other cultures and combines them to make its own.
