Hello, I am Johanna, we live with my husband and three years old son in a very small village, between sea and mountains (an hour from each!), South of France, an hour an half from the border of Spain or Andorra.
It's a very quiet place, and we have a garden a mile away from the house, in a nature reserve. Our village is 15 minutes car drive from the closest town or 30 minutes by bicycle. It is quite dry during summer but we have lakes, rivers, forrest and hot spring waters nearby. Also lots of cultural activities around.
I work as an upcycling designer and my workshop is at home. During summer the garden provides us some food (when we have time to take care of it!).

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We love nature, arts and many other things, but we are too busy with our everyday life to enjoy it at the moment, but having a guest is the best way for us to share. We are working on energy saving and permaculture, if anyone can teach us tricks or want to learn from us... if you're into arts and crafts or want to learn about it you're welcome to join me in my workshop, i work wood, metal, fabric, leather, etc...
we mainly need help in the house, cleaning and cooking, but also a bit of renovation, maintenance and small works. Help in the garden would be a good idea too cause or water channel needs to be fixed, we want to buid a small cabin and a green house!
We don't have a very big house, we can offer you a double bed on our mezzanine above the kitchen (our guests room!) or if you prefer a tent in our garden, with a fire place and the river.
Our village doesn't have an landline internet access, so it is limited but we have connexion at home!
my husband smokes but the inside house is non smoker.
we have two cats!
