i am a writer, shiatsu practitioner, developing a project for alternative living, art in nature. I live in a dream place in nature, within a beautiful, alternative community, ideal for artists, musicians and writers. If you like contemplative life and meditation, if you like to be exposed to the elements, hear the wind, river, birds, this is your place. I love dancing, working on the land, walking in the wild, and watching the seasons and light changing. I feel very connected in this place, it nourishes me and fills me with love and inner peace, sense of purpose.

You will benefit from being part of the activities of the community: music, art, etc. I have sessons of creative writing at my place, meditation, yoga and shiatsu. You will have the opportunity to know natural beauty, waterfalls, walks in nature, time to be on your own and explore the area. You will meet interesting, creative, alternative people who share a common vision of honoring our beautiful mother Earth and work for a greener, sustainable life style in harmony with nature. The place is stunning, quiet, with a brook flowing on the bottom of the land and a beautiful waterfall. If you are an artist / musician /writer you will be inspired every second by the surroundings.
At the moment I need someone to house sit from 19th October until beginning of December. I have a sweet cat. In 2017 there was a fire in the valley and a big devastation around. the forest burnt and it is slowly recovering, but i need some strong will volunteers able to handle a chain saw to cut burnt trees. Also need somebody knowing about lime or ciment to create nice, creative pavements in the garden, build stone benches outside. Also wood ramps or steps on the way to the waterfall, make paths in the forest, etc. So if you are creative and willing to get your hands dirty co in order to make art you are welcomed. Aldo there's some work needed in the veg. garden, making raised beds from wood branches, again, in a creative way.

Nice accommodation indoors. Possibility of camping in a big bell tent in the garden in the summer.
There's a national park, tracks, local alternative markets, people to meet and visit who share an alternative way of living and permaculture projects. There are always cultural and spiritual events happening. There's a big city 40 minutes away by bus and a village very nice to go and have a meal or drink. Waterfalls with pools to swim. River beaches.
