We are a family of 3, Laura, Cyril and baby Eleanore. We have a cat, 3 goats, 4 chickens (and a lot of baby chicks to come).
We live in an old farmhouse with 1,5 ha of land.
We are renovating all buildings in an eco-friendly way, trying techniques of eco-construction such as natural coating, wood building, straw building, earth building...
We cultivate aprox. 300m2 of land using permaculture principles.
We are hosting events such as yoga retreats (Laura is a yoga teacher), ecoconstruction training, wellness fair...
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
We know permaculture and natural buildings, so we will gladly explain everything if you are interested.
We could do yoga together.
We constantly have new projects where help would be very welcomed.
Here is a few examples:
- tending to the permaculture veggie garden
- tending to the animals, building an extension to the chicken fence
- tending to the land: lawn, fallen branches, moving stones, etc.
- building new structures: earth pizza oven, compost toilets, external showers
- renovating the existing buildings with natural techniques
But your personal project could also be welcomed, such as art to decorate Pommaïa, renovating old furniture...

We have a camping area where you can come with your tent or van. We can also provide equipment such as tents, matress, sleeping bag pillow.
There is one hot shower and one toilet accessible.
We are building an external kitchen in a covered lounge area.
We mostly eat vegetarian food but sometimes, for special events we eat meat.
We will provide you with ingredients so you can cook yourself, or we can also share some meals that I will cook.
We would like time to share and privacy time.
Cell phone reception / 4G is ok on the campsite.
There is no wifi.
