Hello, my husband and I will start a re-source project next year for people who have had a difficult period, are recovering from a disease and/or need inner peace and quiet in nature. This year we are working on renovations and could use some help from you!
Types of help and learning opportunitiesCharity WorkDIY and building projects
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We speak Dutch, English (and only a little French...) You get your meals for free in return. If you are motivated to work for a minimum of 4 or 5 hours then you can stay here for free, if you want to work less that is also possible but then you pay a small fee (to be discussed) In your free time you can swim and kayak in the area in good weather, you can enjoy nature and pure silence here!
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Experience with construction works is not necessary! Just being motivated to work with your hands and help where possible is enough. We especially ask for support such as providing materials, bringing or carrying stones or materials etc. If you come as a couple/duo and if either of them does not want to help with the construction work, you can help me bake bread, make food, make ecological household products, do yoga together and meditate (I'm a yoga teacher)
This host offers a language exchange
We are Belgians and speak Dutch and also English. We live in France and are learning French but also want to learn to speak English better...
You are staying in a private house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is therefore also suitable for a couple or family.
What else ...
Because we live remotely in nature, it is recommended that you have a car or at least a driver's license because public transport is not really provided here.
