  • Description


    In the expectation of reducing our carbon index, we just acquired a house in à forest to try to live like H.D.Thoreau. "Live simply so others can simply live" (Gandhi)
    Once the house is finished we would like to make a nourishing forest of this place of life! It is a cool and peaceful place with many paths where you can breathe clean and frech air!
    The village is at 2 km So i have an electric bike (and 1 normal) but it's posible to drive you by car if you need it to the town with is at 6 km (TULLE) or SEILHAC 10 ; exept for tabac because personaly i dont smoke! (But we are tolérant)!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can teach how dying, modelling, paint ect.
    I have a lot of books consulted on nature, self-building, natural birth and also to share my life experience of "degrowth" and "happy sobriety"
    but i am really sorry, here no private pool, ornamental garden, horses or privet tennis court!

    Je peux vous apprendre a bricoler, modeler, peindre etc...

    mais désolé, ici pas de piscine particulière, de chevaux, de jardin d'ornement ni de court de tennis privé
    C'est la forêt !!

    The only urgent thing we need is to deconstruct a timber frame extension (see the photos on our profile). That's the most important thing right now because a mason has to come and fix the masonry below it. It is important someone who can climb on a roof! I would also like someone to come with me to do "empty attics" or "flea markets" to sell things that clutter up this place that I no longer want!

    La seule chose urgente dont nous avons besoin est de déconstruire une extension en ossature bois (regardez les photos sur notre profil). C’est la chose la plus importante pour le moment parce qu’un maçon doit venir réparer la maçonnerie en dessous de cela. C’est important quelqu’un qui peut grimper sur un toit ! J’aimerais aussi que quelqu’un vienne avec moi pour faire des "greniers vides" ou des "marchés aux puces" pour vendre des choses qui encombrent cet endroit que je

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Many footpaths around the house, Gallo Roman excavation site, old church in the village, a very nice stream not far away. The Corrèze is full of charming places with little rivers, waterfalls and wonderful views!, lovers of big cities you will have to take the train in TULLE for BRIVE-LA-GAILLARDEE or LIMOGES!!
    But! Reassure yourself anyway the nearest cities are 6 km for TULLE and 10 for SEILHAC; I have a car to drive you if needed!
