  • Description

    We’re a Franco-English couple, passionate about nature and finding our way into sustainable living.
    We’re big supporters of organics, permaculture, regenerative farming and anything towards building a sustainable future. We’d also really like to start our own project in the not too distant future.
    We lived and worked in New Zealand (where we met), New Caledonia and Australia over the course of 4 years. We've been living and working in Sweden for almost 1 year now.

    We spent four months backpacking through Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Nepal, doing some Workaway along the journey. We’re an active couple, always on the move, we like to keep our minds and bodies alert. We somehow found our way in the wine industry, mostly working for small organic/biodynamic producers.

    What else...
    Clement has a background in landscaping/urbanism. He can't sit still and will always be trying to mend things and generally likes to get his hands stuck into any project. He played rugby for many years and absolutely loves the outdoors, especially being in the mountains. He enjoys hiking, running, cycling, climbing, kayaking, skiing, snorkelling ... and he recently worked as a nature guide in the Stockholm archipelago.

    Natalie studied music at university, but found herself managing a boutique hotel in the years after graduating. she enjoys fitness, yoga and is a keen runner. She loves cooking and baking in her spare time. She has worked in wine sales/ tour guide for 4 years and done much travelling in between.

    We'd love to share our travel experiences and help you in various projects.

    Many more things to talk about but we won't bother you with that just now.
