We are a retreat centre in rural France. In Summer we host yoga, art and many more retreats. Our aim is to offer a beautiful and peaceful setting for people to enjoy their time away, focusing on the activities they love.
When our business is closed, we welcome volunteers to share our beautiful space, learn about life in France, practice yoga & meditation - all in exchange for helping with our everyday life & projects to benefit our family.
We renovated the property in 2017 and are always looking to improve!

Life in our part of France is tranquil and laid back. You can practice your French language at local markets and in our village, explore the local area and come to the many fetes and activities ongoing , or just enjoy your time in our heavenly spot. We have a 1 year old baby, so be prepared for a few cuddles & giggles :)
We are looking for workawayers help with seasonal outdoor projects & general garden maintenance, for example creating spaces in woodlands for new building projects & eco activities for our family.
In particular anyone with carpentry skills would be fantastic as we are building new wooden structures, using wood felled as part of our woodland management where possible.
In March 2019 we would like a whole team working together! Enjoy Springtime and the growth this can bring.
Ideally we welcome a few people at once, so if you prefer indoor work eg cooking & cleaning you can do that.
We also have lots of furniture & craft projects you can get involved with, your creativity can be unleashed!
Whatever your strengths are, we can try to find work to match that.

Your accommodation will be in one of our spare rooms, so you will have a private space, indoor & heated with a private bathroom.
We will provide food, but we will all take turns with the cooking and cleaning.
