  • Description


    Hello! We are Paul (70), a Sculptor from Switzerland and Sabine (55), a german Naturopath, who are both living since 30 years in France in a very green countryside. There we bought a old farm and transformed the barn in a 200m²-sculptor atelier and the baking-house in a practice for natural healthcare. Our 3 children grew up here - they are adult now and living abroad.

    Our amazing place is 1 km from the center of the little village, near the forest in a very natural protected area. You can find there a small supermarket, butchery, bakery and a water body
    We are transforming our big garden into a permaculture garden. ​We grow fruits and vegetables for our own use​. This July, we intend do build a greenhouse so we can grow food during the winter months also.

    We are also involved in a project in the village to build a integrative cultural meeting place for the people around here.

    We love gardening, playing on the Hang, cooking and eating, art doing, dancing, meditation, yoga.
