  • Description


    High garden is a warm house made from an old barn on a 3000m2 plot, leaded by young dads (30's) and welcoming any people who wants to enjoy gardening and taking care of the place and the people. We are part of a collective autonomous network so you can meet other people and places around with lots of parties! High garden is children-friendly, and no dogs allowed. The immediate neighbors are a dairy farm run by very nice young people who make cheese and butter. We have two trailers on site to welcome you.

    High Garden est une maison confortable et chaleureuse, rénovation d'une vieille grange, gérée par deux jeunes papas de trente piges et acceuillant toute personne qui aime jardiner et prendre soin du lieu et des gens. Nous faisons partie d'un collectif avec plusieurs lieux autour donc vous pourrez rencontrer d'autres gens, on fait souvent des fêtes. Les voisins sont une ferme laitière tenue par des jeunes qui font du fromage du beurre et du saucisson. Nous avons deux caravanes sur le site pour vous accueillir.
