  • Description


    We love to welcome you at our island of silence and happiness in the middle of the beautiful nature of the France Vosges. Our project has three old farm houses witch are rebuild now to gites. We are an alternative family with four children (age 6,7,11,12), we like to be in nature and enjoy life in the simple things. During school days the kids are at school and their will be time to do a lot of gardening, rebuild our houses, make beautiful walks, meditate, sing together at the camp fire and when the kids are at home, help them with home work, built three houses together or teach them about nature. You will be warm welcomed in our family, have a good bed an enough privacy to do your own thing after the the work is done. We love your input, tell us what you know, we like to learn from each other. We love flexibility and trust is a very important base.

    Since summer 2019 we live in France, so our project is very young. We have a few little animals now (rabbits, chicken, two dogs and three cats) but in the near future we will welcome two donkeys and a few sheep. So if you have experience with that animals, that would be great.
