    join us for a THE SECOND SEASON in a project close to Mirepoix, Midi-Pyrénnés in an outstanding park and a chateau which just looks like disney has left it!

    After a great first season we are looking for some helpers to start the second part of this big project in MARCH 2019!!!

    We will attack then some demolition parts in the chateau and live hopefully from mid february in a beautiful total restored house, having space for additional helpers!!
    Each room will then have a privat bathroom, and a new kitchen for cooking, so we can continue to eat just as great as we did until now!!
    Thanks to all the people who stayed here, we just had a immense variety of daily fresh made specialties, thanks to everybody helping to realize this!!

    We continue to build the permacultural garden, building a pergola out of bamboo, restore the park consciously by rebuilding walls and other affected topics.
    The walls of the castle inside need to be cleared of plaster and it's ancient story, wood billets are waiting to be done so the work never gets boring!!

    We speak fluent french, german and english, italian basic...

    *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️Take this unique opportunity and stay with us for at least two week, more is welcome and spend an unforgettable journey at our Chateau and its then restored outbuildings with us *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️

    So we are looking for people which can also take care of a beautiful place and which are aware of the work of everybody here!!

    Working like this mentions everybody wants to eat great food and be spoiled by the cook, juliette...i'm doing marvellous chocolate cakes and freshly cooked food - even homemade pasta will be served and grilling can be done as well.

    We want the people staying with us to live our project from the beginning just as you would be our paying guests later!

    What else ...

    When not working, you have the choice of doing artistic work, just because the property is so incredible. But for others we have bikes you can use and visit the beautiful area, do some historical siteviewing, go swim in the lake or fishing in the river...there is also possibility of horseback riding close to our property or just read a good book and enjoy the calm of the park.
