  • Description


    We, Laurence et Laurent (48-49) live in a very old house in a very little ski resort. We have 4 children 24, 22, 20 years old and a baby born in october 2017.
    We rent three flats during holidays. We have a permaculture garden during summer and get warm with solar panels and by burning wood in winter. We have some animals : donkey, sheep, ducks, chickens, rabbits. Our house is located in a little hamlet in the middle of the mountain. We practise hiking, ski touring, climbing, mountain bike, ski, snowshoes...
    We own an old house to repair with a forest all around where we cut wood for heating our house during cold season.

  • Help


    All activities around a small farm with donkeys, sheep, ducks, chickens and rabbits.
    Permaculture gardening. You can also help by cutting wood, ignite the fire in the boiler.
    In winter, you will have the snow removal.
    Help in the kitchen and laundry room, cleaning our furnished apartments, looking after our baby.
    Help with mounting films or design serious games on gardening, fauna and flora around the house.
    We need autonomous people to take care of the animals (ducks, rabits, chiken, donkeys...), to drive to go shoping with one of our cars (on mountains roads!)...

    You will be happy to stay in our home if you enjoy hiking in the mountain, being into the wild nature and if your are indepedant and autonomous!

    Thank your for your answer!

    Many things to do around if you like the wild.
