We are living in a small farm, 250 years old, beside a river, at the foot of the Jura mountains.
We are two adults ( Véronique 42 and Pierre-André 56) and our daughter, 11. We work as a veterinarian and journalist, and as accountant. Three horses, a mule, some sheeps and a dog live on the farm. We are nature lovers and sportive people, who like trail running, skiing, wandering, horse riding!
We are trying to increase more and more the biodiversity of our piece of land and are trying too to accrease our autonomy in food production (organic vegetable).
If you have some skills in permaculture project, we would be interested to develop it on our farm.
People who like nature, outdoor sports, hiking, will be at the right place. But we are also near some interesting cities with lot of museums and a lot more!
We prefer short stay of about one week
