    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You'll live a very pleasant experience through your staying with us. We are almost totally self-sufficient. We produce electricity, food and live in a little cottage in the forest (Ardenne).

    Antoine is qualified as an herbalist, a french cooking chef, wild edible plant teacher and biodynamic farmer. Nancy is on her side qualified as a harpist, yoga teacher and nature guide.

    If interested, it is with joy that we will share those knowledge with you.
    Our cultural interest has brought us in a one year world trip, looking for meeting people, traditional way of living and wonderful exchanges.

    We love human beings, we are very interested to learn from your ideas, dreams and culture.

    Helping us in the garden would be one of the most important job, but we also built eco-constructions and work in the forest.

    In summer you will participate in the herbal infusion process such as plucking, drying, sorting, mixing herbs.

    In winter we cut wood and build a lot of eco-constructions. It's a more physical work.

    In total we ask 4hrs per day working with a maximum staying of one week.

    Accommodation

    You'll stay in your own little cottage connected to electricity and cold water. The cottage is in the forest, 30 meters from our home, where you can get hot showers.

    If you come, please take ecological soap with you to respect the area and biodiversity in our place. No weed smoker please.

    The cottage is a totally eco builded construction, you'll feel very relaxed and peaceful.

    We have phone network in our place and free wifi is available in the villages bar (5 minutes walk).

    We cook and eat vegetarian and organic, it's always a pleasure.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    From home, many trails would bring you to marvellous area, such as the Millennium tower (234 steps for a great view) or the beaver pound in the middle of the forest. In the village you could rent a horse and go for a ride.

    You could also use our bicycles to visit the local brewery, a hawkfarm, a bison ranch, middle-aged castle, the Hans cave,...

    We don't have a television, we love reading books, we don't smoke.
    We play harp and sitar, practise woodcarving and pottery.
    We love to be happy, we live day by day, we work and share with passion.
