  • Description


    I live in an old farmhouse in the south of France where I grow organic. Surrounded by vineyards and nature with direct access to go for walks in the forest and hills from my property. The area offers so many waterfalls, lakes, and hiking opportunities, and I am just an hour from the Mediterranean coast. I live in the countryside surrounded by vineyards and forest, a beautiful place to be. I would like to greet you here and share my little paradise, share our time with you cooking together and listening to your life experience. I would be able to offer my life experience too as well as my knowledge of organic growing and fermentation, showing you local places to go and experience the beauty of Provence. I am a medical doctor and wrote books together with my husband on alternative views on how to live a healthy life and also on fermentation procedures. You could be single or a couple. I have two options for work aways. 1: You will have a small apartment with one bedroom, a living space with an open American kitchen fully equipped. Separate entrance. 2: I can also accommodate a workaway in a large room with a private bathroom. I have a second car you can borrow. My family has three dogs, chickens, and Koi carp fish to care for.
    Hope to welcome you here.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area is known for it's organic growing, wine and vegetables, and it is very authentic with a beautiful nature. Hiking opportunities, excursions, cultural offers are everywhere in this part of France. Typical french markets almost every weekday in villages nearby. I am not far from the coast (1Hours drive).

  • Help


    I need help with the garden, chickens, cleaning the house, and DIY. DIY would mainly be maintenance and repairs inside the house, or repairs on the chicken run. I also have doors to sand and paint. If you are a good cook and like cooking, I would be more than happy to taste the food you prepare and I will provide the good raw materials needed. I prefer to eat a proper homemade dinner every day and cook together if possible.
    I am eager to learn how to work with a sowing machine. If you can teach me how to sew, it would be a wonderful lesson.

    This host offers a language exchange
    Languages are essential to communicating and understanding other cultures. I am often meeting up with friends from the area and it gives me the opportunity to improve my french and get to know more about their culture. I live here because I love the area, I am interested in nature, culture, history and it is all here. There are plenty of opportunities to explore.
