  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple of farmers close to retirement, established in the Ardèche for more than 30 years. We welcome the public in large cottages adjoining the house in high season (from April to November). We have traveled, and lived other lifes than those of farmers, and are open-minded. We wish help to take care of the Mas daily. We have chosen for many years to follow the position of ecological decay, trying to consume as little as possible, and do the most things ourselves: DIY (Do It Yourself). We are interested in the movement of the Colibris dear to Coline Serreau and Pierre Rabhi.

    Nous sommes un couple de fermiers proches de la retraite, établis en Ardèche depuis plus de 30 ans. Nous accueillons du public dans de grands gîtes attenant à la maison en haute saison (d'Avril à Novembre). Nous avons voyagé, et vécu d'autres vies que celles de fermiers, et sommes ouverts d'esprit. Nous souhaitons de l'aide pour nous occuper du Mas au quotidien. Nous avons choisi depuis de nombreuses années de suivre la position de la décroissance écologique, en tentant de consommer le moins possible, et de faire le maximum de choses nous-mêmes : DIY (Do It Yourself). Nous nous intéressons au mouvement des Colibris cher à Coline Serreau et Pierre Rabhi.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will be able to benefit from our ancestral knowledge, ecological transition and decline. In the face of everyday tasks, they learn gardening, farming, and cooking, and we hope that they will learn new ways to do it. We speak English, Spanish, Italian, and are willing to try to speak French with the travelers if they wish (and if they are not French).

    Les voyageurs pourront s'ils le désirent bénéficier de nos connaissances concernant les savoirs ancestraux, la transition écologique, la décroissance. Face aux taches du quotidien, ils apprendront à jardiner, s'occuper de la ferme, et de la cuisine, et nous espérons qu'ils en retireront de nouvelles façons de faire. Nous parlons anglais, espagnol, italien, et nous sommes disposés à tenter de parler en français avec les voyageurs s'ils le désirent (et s'ils ne sont pas français).
