  • Description


    I live in the pine forest of "Les Landes de Gascogne", trying to do my best to be in harmony with this beautifull nature.
    I am a woman, 63 years old and my two children are travelling around the world.
    i am renovating an old farm ( house, barn and 2 hectares of forest ) with an ecological focus.
    I do my vegetable garden in the permaculture way .
    Help could be appreciate indoor or outdoor, building with lime and carpentry on the barn, using chainsaw in the forest.....
    The last 30 years my job was costums designer and even if i am now quite expert with a trowel i do my best with my sawing machine !
    I have a big caravane for you to stay in and be independant but not too far from the house.
    Many place to visit around, a river at 4 kms , a lake at 10 kms, the sea at 40 kms and Bordeaux the same.
