  • Description


    We are a family with 5 kids (all boys) between 13 and 1 year old. We speak many languages in our house but mostly French, Dutch and English. We live in our forest on the riverside. We love nature, animals and the simple life.

    We want to construct a sanctuary where abused women and children can find a safe place and heal. We want to offer different therapies, supports and activities and a free and safe spiritual practice. We want to also offer small Forest School workshops for children to give them the opportunity to re-connect with nature.

    What else ...

    The beautiful river is really wonderful and you can take the kayak out. Lovely nature for nice walks, running, Yoga etc. But also the very lovely and active city of Limoges with it’s history, bar’s, cafes, cinema, shops, museums and all the activities you can think of (kart, climbing, laser-games, jump, etc). Rich student life, beautiful parks etc.
    All the sports and hobbies you can think of and an amazing big new swimming facility “aquapolis” and a big concert facility “zenith”. Theater, opera house, library etc.

    We like to enjoy nature and visiting our friends. Do pick nick’s and bbq!s together and just enjoy life and the simple thing of spending time together.
