  • Description


    in the Périgord region of France, our welcoming place is open for Workawayers in a natural environment dedicated to harmony.

    We are a couple, Caroline and Philippe, and we welcome you in our stone house and two comfortable bungalows located by a 3000 square meter pond fed by a spring (perfect for swimming), a 1.5-hectare wood with a cabin, a well, and a pond. The property spans three hectares and is a haven dedicated to biodiversity, including an orchard. Aside from our friendly cat, we do not have any animals on-site yet; the neighbors below take care of retired horses, while the neighbors above do rodeo.

    We are part of a collective called "La Cité de la Présence" which is dedicated to creating living spaces that combine simplicity, beauty, inner and outer ecology. We aim to integrate pragmatism and spirituality in everyday life.
