    Description

    Thank you for visiting our profile!

    We are a small international and multigenerational family living in Belgium, between Ghent and Lille (in France). Our home is a 1 hour drive away from Brussels, a 2 hours drive from Paris and a 3 hours drive from Amsterdam.

    We have a beautiful, large garden and several pets (2 dogs, 3 cats and 4 chickens).

    We speak English, Dutch, French and Brazilian Portuguese fluently, and we understand some Italian, Spanish and German.

    We are working towards becoming more self sufficient, growing our own organic food. We would be happy to host guests with a common interest in self sufficiency and permaculture to offer a helping hand.

    Our ideal guest is a nature and animal lover whom is spiritually inclined, is happy eating vegetarian food, and has some experience with do it yourself projects and working in the garden. Someone with knowledge and experience in self sufficiency would be a great asset.
