    HELLO!!! Welcome to the natural parc of Aubrac with abundant source water & pure air! We look forward to welcoming a solo traveler, a couple or a family (max 3 children).

    We have a period to fill in April (6th to 26th, dates flexible to begin as late as 13th and to stay longer) and June/July/August - the in-between / before / after periods are flexible and optional. There are some modest income opportunities as well. We can welcome some traveling pets, depending... feel free to ask!

    What we offer:
    - We are friendly and fun, energetic but relaxed, creative, kind & well-equipped in many regards
    - We are better with loosely structured schedules than strict tight schedules... :)
    - During downtime, lots of opportunity for conversations, creative activities, games, reading, relaxing in the hammoc, jumping on the trampoline, having a campfire, singing, dancing, drumming, etc.
    - Room in house, tent or parking for your caravan, yurt, etc.
    - We will provide dry ingredients and buy fresh vegetables weekly, or give you a shopping budget
    - Two consecutive days off, usually during the week (flexible, though), as Jules is home weekends and would like to have assistance with projects on our land.
    - Occasional rides to town, pick up & drop-off in nearby towns

    What we hope for:
    - Basic grasp of English language
    - Good with children (patient, warm-hearted, creative, healthy boundaries, modeling good behavior, enjoy doing outdoor and creative activities, singing, etc.)
    - Ability to work independently and to improvise / think creatively
    - You are mature, reliable and dependable
    - You practice regular hygiene
    - Socially independent (we have sometimes guests on our property who come for peace and tranquility, so it's important to respect their space and keep the environment serene - but don't worry, there is plenty of space for everyone to do their thing!!!)
    - Your own transportation is a bonus!

    Hello! We live in a beautiful, peaceful, pure setting with our family of 5 persons - French dad, American mom, four children ages 14, 6, 3 & baby and our furry family members.

    We are in the start-up of autonomous living on our land. We have a hectare plus tons of space in outbuildings (stable, hangar, grange, etc.) and are surrounded by pastures and communal trails.

    Mother teaches holistic beauty, kundalini yoga, and is rebirthing breathwork and sound therapist, writer and editor. Father is working with the stone rooftops of the region and previously was a world traveler / photographer. We have a two year old garden, and lots of small projects here and there in our home and land, as well as some bigger projects.

    It's a peaceful old farm with a nicely finished large family home, rolling hills, lots of wildlife, beautiful flowers will come in spring, abundant water flowing all around, house furnished by nephriatic (underground lake), on the plateau of Aubrac in the north Aveyron department. We welcome families, children, and caravans / people traveling with campers.

    Some work is physical - gardening, small building projects, use of a karcher, mowing the land sometimes (just a path), moving wood with wheel barrow, and some work is more 'soft' - cleaning indoors, cooking, helping with the children doing art, language, math, etc.

    Please contact us with your details! We can welcome you soon and would love to have you join us!
