  • Descripción


    In the heart of France, in "Le Berry", lies our little hamlet of around 30 houses, where young and old live together side by side, restoring the old rural houses and barns while enjoying the peaceful countryside and beautiful nature in the midst of Europe.

    Join us!
    We are a group of french, english, dutch and german neighbours, located around the "center" of the hamlet, working as graphic-designers, journalists (specialized in food and nutrition), architects, a professional cook and all the other neighbours in the hamlet, in one of the most unknown parts of rural France and learn more about the stories and the daily life of all those people, who gathered here to bring back life to this lovely place.

    You can give us a hand restoring and renovating the houses, rebuilding the dry walls with the granite stones from the area, gardening, cooking and maintaining the place, even just cleaning would help us a lot to bring this place back to its former glory.

    From time to time we all gather for "apéro", sometimes there are tango and dancing parties, all this has actually stopped because of Covid19, so life is more quiet and secluded in the village at the moment.

    First sunday of August is our festival with creative workshops and people from the area selling their home-made products. From mai to september there are plenty of events and fairs (Brocantes) in the area almost every weekend, sometimes you even do not know which one to choose...

    Our hamlet has been clasified "Remarkable Hamlet" ("Hameau remarquable") and it is indeed remarkable, but the most remarkable are the people living here!

  • Alojamiento


    We are a group of neighbours in their fourties and fifties, no small kids, there is plenty to do, depending where you help and stay, you would have in any case a very simple room, mostly with shared bathroom, access to the kitchens, gardens etc. There are cats and dogs in our households.

    A simple place is for sure, a more luxurious one will depend on the speed of our renovation works... All Food and drinks will of course be provided, you will have to make your breakfast and one meal during the day yourself (will not be served), one meal will be cooked and served either noon or evening (depending on the workflow).

    As a prevention with Covid19 we host only for two weeks or more, first week in quarantaine which means, staying mainly in the house and gardens and not so much walking or driving around in the area, as we have many elderly persons in the village and the area.

    There is no public transport in our hamlet. We can provide you with a bicycle. Small towns are in 17 km (Aigurande) or 25 km (La Châtre) distance. There is a bus-system in the area (aile bleue indre). Our hamlet is part of Crevant, which is 5km away. A bus is going from Crevant to La Châtre once a day.
    We are also moving regularly in the area, so you can come with one us. Some work in La Châtre and commute daily.
