    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    First, you could learn French (I'm a french teacher) and French culture : the area is rich in history (néolithique and medieval), and the food is succulent.
    A vehicule is advised to discover the area and take advantage of the activities around (lake river....)

  • Help


    We are renovating a barn and an old house, so we need one or two strong handymen who are able to move heavy stones and wood..... We'd like to change the flooring upstairs which involves moving all the paving stones and replace it with a wooden floor.

  • Accommodation


    We are offering accommodation in a tipi (which has been very popular) where we can set up 1 or 2 beds (bed linen provided). The bathroom facilities are in a pleasant garden shelter with a shower (hot water) and a dry toilet. But we can also provide a "classic" room with an ordinary bathroom if preferred.
    The meals (breakfast, lunch and diner) can be served in the garden or in our house.

    What else ...

    During your free time, the workawayers can go to the lake (10 min by car, 30 min by bike), walk, cycle, or just relax and hang out in our big, peaceful garden. We have bikes you can borrow if you would like. There is no public transport so a vehicule is very useful if you wish to visit the region.
