  • Description


    Hello everyone,

    We are located in Trémel Côtes d'Armor, in the middle of nowhere. Our nearest neighbors

    are a herd of cows !!! But we have a lot of visits, especially in the summer, between volunteers,

    students, scouts, friends, etc ...

    5 years ago, I decided to live the company as I conceive, instead of constantly criticizing. So

    I left my previous job and I bought the farm where I currently reside. Since I set up

    community projects:

    • 2015: Establishment of Housing Group, participation in the Swiss Association

    • 2016: Establishment of a food garden, a shared garden and a self-service garden

    Pumpipumpe; (Sharing Network among neighbors) Establishment of a die Edible


    Creating a new beverage concentrate Ginger

    My first beekeeping, with the acquisition of a hive (to start)

    To make sense of all these projects, traditional dances (folk) are present around us: whether at

    home, in dance or festival, is enormously dance (am also professor of traditional couple

    dances: Waltz, Mazurka, Scottish, Polka ...)

    But now, being only one with all these projects, I get out of breath just ... the idea is to share

    these ideas with motivated people ... why not you !!!

    We caution you here, comfort is simple, no decoration, no bows or lace ... This is a voluntary choice. The style is rather in the spirit of "Roadtrip" trips simplicity, minimalism, recycled objects ... it is a choice too. Just the basics: sleep, eat, wash and exchange if desired and if the requesting because up team adapts to the demand. Discretion is part of our ethics. The kitchen and dining room are common and it is possible to prepare meals or breakfast yourself. Everyone does as he wishes and pace. This place gives everyone the freedom to organize itself as it wishes.
