For the past few years, we have decided to take over the farm of Aline’s parents, where there are cows and horses, without forgetting the chicken coop and the vegetable garden. Philippe planted vines and made his own wine. Aline made a green asparagus plantation. The first harvest is planned for this year, in April!
Aline grew up on this traditional farm in Aveyron, lived in several major cities and especially two years in Naples.
Philippe has an atypical career, it is after a professional reconversion that he became winemaker.
We have voluntarily chosen a humanly sized agriculture to maintain artisanal, qualitative and organic practices.
We have made a life choice that enchants us but no longer allows us to travel as much as before. So having volunteers is another way for us to travel...
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Sharing, sharing, these are the main reasons why we like to welcome volunteers.
Epicureans, we love to cook and talk about cooking. We pay particular attention to the moment of the meals, moment of exchange and conviviality.
Aline would be happy to welcome Italian speakers to be able to exchange in this language.
We welcome only one volunteer or couple of volunteers at a time.
We like to share our knowledge. We are very careful that volunteers spend time with us.
The farm takes us a lot of time so we expect organized and autonomous people who take initiatives in domestic chores such as vegetable garden, take care of the chickens, cook and clean in the house...

The volunteers are staying with us but we do not live on the farm. We live with our 4 year old son, 1 km away in a small village where there are all the shops. The volunteers have a room for them with a sofa bed. They can use the bathroom, the washing machine, the internet connection. We have TV and a small garden.
The area is very pretty with typical stone villages and hilly landscapes, 300m above sea level. From the village, several hikes are possible and in summer, the municipal swimming pool is open.

We have pets
We are smokers
