  • Description


    We are a couple with 2 children. Milène 33 years old and Thomas, 37, Liou our daughter 8 ( much gossip as you can imagine (very good if you have to improve your french as i have to improve my English!) Martin the choupi baby, 2 years old.
    We live closed to the ocean, in summer we camp in Bias at 6 km from the ocean, and from our surf school on the plage de Lespecier, very wild site! hé hé! We have several activities: a farming project all along the year and surfshool in summer....
    We mostly need help with children, to play, have a walk, build a hut, painting, singing, gardening....and all you can imagine! but if you enjoy building, carpentry, gardening, animals, surf, cooking it'allwright!
    We rent a site in the neighboring campsite to welcome the surf instructor who work with us, to take warm shower too, (because we build our place and we haven't for the moment ) and to welcome travellers interested by our farm project and very motivated to live a natural and roots way of life.
    We have a litte herd of sheep, We take them browsing around. We set up a vegetable growing.
    We draw water through a borehole and we are not connected to electricity, we just have an unfolds system with Car batteries and solar panels.
    So we can offer a caravane at campsite as accomodation, or it's possible to plant your own tent.
    if you have your own vehicle it's better even if its just a bike.
    I think that the ideal formula is to come in pairs or couples, and why not with a child?
    The caravan is small (a small double bed and a litte bench) and a little vintage but in perfect condition!
    We are really looking forward to meeting new people and sharing our life project, that is to say to realize with the means of the edge with little means but a lot of creativity!
    The beaches here are magnificent, the rivers have sandy bottoms, it is the land of springs ... For all lovers of nature, this country offers an immensity of contemplations. So welcome!
