I'm a carpenter living in a stone house with 3 beautiful kids ( 9, 11, 13 years) and 2 cats, nearby a Provencal village in the Luberon.
There is a second stone house on this land and I would like to make it habitable ( now It's my workshop) and to create a permaculture garden.
There are also 5 Borries ( stone hut ) on the land and forest everywhere around, so this is a nice place if you like nature, to do yoga, to meditate or just if you need calm and beauty for your eyes.
