    Description

    After volunteering in various farms in the world, I managed to convince my father to accept hosting volunteers too and I'm really happy to start that new experience in our property. The farm is only 1hectare, sufficient for a family to grow veggies and care few animals for our own consumption. It have been kinda abandonned for 10years and the priority will be renovating stone walls and roof. I live in a mobile-home in the middle of the farm with dry toilet and solar shower but we provide private room in the house for volunteers. We are actually renovating the house, so It's "work in progress" inside, there is still a bathroom with hot water, but also a lot of dust :)
    I'll be assisting volunteers during week days, that will be also during the week that you'll have free time, as on weekends, my father is here to work with us. He doesn`t speak english at all. Hopefully you`ll speak some basics french to communicate with him.
    We share meals and life in general in familial athmosphere, that does not mean that I play the role of the mother, all those who enjoy the meal are invited to participate in the preparation or then clean & storage, exactly like at home. :) Don`t hesitate to write me for any further information.
    See you soon!

    Après avoir été volontaire dans diverses fermes du monde, j'ai réussi à convaincre mon père d'accueillir des bénévoles et je suis vraiment heureuse de commencer cette nouvelle expérience dans notre propriété. La ferme fait seulement 1hectare, suffisant pour cultiver des légumes et soigner quelques animaux pour notre propre consommation. Cela fait environ 10 ans que nous n'avons pas fait grand-chose sur les bâtiments et la priorité sera de rénover les murs et les toits. Je vis dans un mobil-home au milieu de la ferme avec des toilettes sèches et une douche solaire mais nous fournirons des chambres privées dans la maison pour les volontaires. Il y a une salle de bain toujours fonctionnelle dans la maison, mais comme le reste de la maison à part la chambre, est en travaux, il y a aussi pas mal de poussièere... Allergiques s'abstenir!
    Les repas ainsi que les tâches quotidiennes sont partagés dans une ambiance familiale, je gérerai l'organisation car mon père travaille la semaine. Ambiance familiale ne signifie pas que je joue le rôle de la maman, tous ceux qui bénéficient du repas sont conviés à participer à la préparation ou au rangement ensuite, comme à la maison quoi! :) Les jours de repos seront plutôt en semaine car nous préférons bricoler en présence de mon père les week-ends. Il ne parle pas anglais. J'espère que vous parlerez un peu français pour communiquer avec lui. N'hésitez pas à m'écrire pour plus d'informations.
    À bientôt!

    I'm talking fluently English and Spanish. I have traveled a lot around the world for the last 12 years and consider travelling as a real passion. Considering food as a priority to access a healthy life, I like to know where the ingredients I use come from, learn new recipes, experiment and why not then teach them!
    Je parle couramment anglais et espagnol. J'ai beaucoup voyagé de part le monde ces 12 dernières années et considère le voyage comme une réelle passion. Estimant l'alimentation comme une priorité pour accéder à une vie saine, j 'aime savoir d'où viennent les ingrédients que j'utilise, apprendre de nouvelles recettes, les expérimenter et pourquoi pas ensuite, les enseigner.
