You'll live a very pleasant experience through your staying with us. We are almost totally self-sufficient. We produce food and live 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 and nature guide.
Our cultural interest has brought us in a one year world trip, looking for meeting people, traditional way of living and wonderful exchanges.
There is a lot of chores to do. In spring and summer we need help in the garden, plucking, drying, sorting, mixing herbs, also ecoconstructions.
In autumn and winter we cut wood, we carry wood and build a wooden caravan, that's more physical.
In total we ask 4hrs per day working with a maximum staying of one week. We work most time together.
You will stay in a cottage in the middle of the forest, close to our house, where we take meals together.
We have one cottage for maximum 2 and one for maximum 3 persons. They have both a wood-burning stove, which is warm and relaxing. We have no electricity and no water in the cottages. So we will furnish lights and water bottles. We warm water in a baskets on a stove to wash ourselves.
In summer you can also sleep in a tent, but in winter it's too hard core.
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, but no wifi.
We cook and eat vegetarian and organic together, it's always a pleasure.
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.
