  • Description

    Description

    After 9 years of ecological renovation of our house, it is time for us to take the next step: that of welcoming.
    We love to garden, cook, store our vegetables. We walk and pick in the countryside. Share our multiple experiences: teaching, education, associative and community life, ecology, permaculture, degrowth.

    Welcoming has different meanings for us:
    It allows us to learn and travel while staying at home.
    For our children as for us, meeting the other is an opportunity to grow and participate in the world of tomorrow.
    It also saves time and energy for the creation of our future projects: with two people, a project is three times more efficient than carried out alone.

    With us, you will meet Basile (5 years old), Anouk (7 years old), Françoise (41 years old) and Pierre-Yves (42 years old); but also 1 cat, chickens, sheep and dry toilets. You will accompany us in the projects, the leisures and the tasks of the daily life ... A vast and very varied "program"!

    Après 9 ans de rénovation écologique de notre maison, il est temps pour nous de passer à l'étape suivante: celle de l'accueil.
    Nous aimons jardiner, cuisiner, conserver nos légumes. Nous balader et cueillir dans la campagne. Partager nos expériences multiples: enseignement, éducation, vie associative et communautaire, écologie, permaculture, décroissance.

    Accueillir a pour nous différentes significations:
    Cela nous permet d'apprendre et de voyager tout en restant chez nous.
    Pour nos enfants comme pour nous, rencontrer l'autre est une occasion de grandir et de participer au monde de demain.
    C'est aussi gagner du temps et de l'énergie pour la création de nos futurs projets: à deux personnes, un chantier est trois fois plus efficace que réalisé seul.

    Chez nous, vous rencontrerez Basile (5 ans), Anouk (7 ans), Françoise (41 ans) et Pierre-Yves (42 ans); mais aussi 1 chat, des poules, des moutons et des toilettes sèches.
    Vous nous accompagnerez dans les projets, les loisirs et les tâches de la vie quotidienne...
    Un vaste "programme" très varié!
