  • Description



    Hello whoever you are;
    if you contact me please make sure to read everything.

    We have been off the last two years because we had a baby. Now, the project sees two more pleople. My partneer and my daughter.
    Things have changed since and now you find a family with a different type of needs.
    Our daughter is still demanding of time and presence. We have decided to stay with her and keed working on the land when we can.
    Here there is no electricity - we work on solar hours and I've put some solar light inside and outside the carvan. It's cosy. You can heat if you need.

    A volunteer (BEST TWO) is welcome at the moment ONLY if he/she has no problem in staying on his own at night.
    If you desire to stay with us, being part of our project but having INDEPENDENCE that is perfect for you. !!!!
    If you have problems with kids or family situations please do NOT contact us;
    We do not ask you to babysit our daughter but she is less than 2 years old and part of the project.
    For us some profiles would be perfect : if you feel to have lots of caring for child and patient, feel free to contact us.

    Since our daughter was born, we live in town, 5 km far from the land in a small apartement.
    You can use bycicle to arrive.
    We do not have space to host you in town but we like the idea to have you on the land living as you want, the way I used to do myself.
    Every morning we'll reach you on the land and plan working time and meals together.
    You have a kitchenette on the land anyway.

    Very important to me is communication. I do respect my feelings and needs first of all and I do believe that you do the same so if we respect each other, we will get on well.
    In this order I'm very into LGBTQ+ studies. So, you're welcome if you feel be part of that somehow.

    About food : [controversial subject] I prefer to say that food is basic and organic. I tend to spend more money for organic and good food. Sometimes there is abundance, some other not. I follow the flow.
    We have been vegeterian, at the moment we can eat everything.

    About the stay : let's say you stay one week, and if we get on once you are here you can stay longer.
    Thanks !!

  • Help



    Come help me with my "rêve" dream of having an oasis in permaculture.

    Main missions in 2023 are gardening, building solar dryer for herbs or fruits, helping with plastering an earth dome and finish the babies area.
    If you have experience is better for us at the moment. We really need someone who is independent with the work.
    Time is so precious with a baby.
    We will do everything that helps to get the place as confortable as we can for future guests and for the family.

    I've studied languags, lived abroad. I can speak french and english. I'd prefer to exchange with spanish or improve my english.

  • Accommodation


    You can sleep in a caravan (solar light)
    If you don’t mind the quiet and remoteness, than you will have a great time living a simple daylife.
    I can only suggest this if you are up to wildness and primitiveness. (Solar shower in a comfy compost toilet)

    N.B. no hot water, we warm water on the burner if needed.
    If and when we need confort [as internet or other] we can go to town.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I prefer to host two people at time who come together as I can be busy with my daughter in town.
    Where possible you can come with me.
    I can provide two bicycles.
