Hello workaway friends,
Welcome and thank you for your interest and curiosity. Our Eco-Habitat is a sustainable learning place that positively contributes to a healthy eco system. We would like to invite you to become a volunteer in our unique ecological project. Our farm is located on a southern slope in the Parc Naturel Régional des Monts d'Ardèche. We, Sebo and Bastiaan, are happy to meet you and learn and work with you towards a sustainable future. Our beautiful terrain consists 7 hectares of forest with its own well that provides us with drinking water. We live off grid and produce our own electricity. The river Bésorgues flows over our land and is located 80 meters below the farm. We swim here every day. When we don't work we are celebrating the naturist lifestyle. In recent years, more than 140 volunteers from not less than 22 different nationalities have helped us.
Every morning we start with spiritual exercises in nature. We physically work an average of four hours a day in the food forest or vegetable garden. This is good for our personal health and it teaches us physically how much energy needs to be produced for a regenerative and ecological living system. Every day we reflect for ten minutes in a personal place somewhere on our site. In the afternoon you are free to do as you please. In the evenings we usually have dinner together and tell each other stories about wonderment in nature that day. These are often special and rich moments in which we really meet. You share a nicely furnished bedroom with another volunteer. We all share the bathroom. In addition, we have a cozy and beautiful space where you can retreat from time to time.
We are hosting mostly two till four volunteers at the same time. We like to show commitment to our volunteers and we ask them to do the same towards our eco habitat. Therefore two weeks is the minimum period if you are interested in participating in our project. Characteristic of our project is that we live nude in a small community. Everyone is naked when we are not working and when the weather permits, which is almost always the case in the summer months. You don't have to be experienced in this, but we do ask you to go along with it. We understand that living the naturist lifestyle can be a unusual. Therefore we are creating a very body positive and safe environment. Naturism strengthens our social connection and the connection with nature.
Social engagement is another important component in a sustainable ecosystem. We make sure that everyone has a good time by looking out for each other. In concrete terms, this means occasionally taking a broom to clean the rooms, making a cup of coffee for someone else and extending a helping hand when cooking or cleaning up.
Do you have the desire to live like an ecological person who respects the earth and chooses a lifestyle that suits it? Are you interested in: Living the change and get empowered to share inspiring stories for a sustainable future. Just drop us some lines. And use the words: Social Naturism.
We would love to know you better. Experience has shown that it is important to make personal contact first. That is why we would like to have a FaceTime chat with you (without any further obligations) We are really interested in your stories as well. So we both have the opportunity to see if there is a click.

We like to share knowledge about deep ecology, permaculture, food forest design and sustainable farming. We love to do yoga, meditation and green mindfulness.
Our Eco-Habitat is a place where we make a deep connection with the essence of ourselves and where nature helps us to understand the lessons of life.
Living in and with nature also means naturism (nudism or fkk) for us. We noticed that living together in a small naturist community gives all those involved new inspiration and energy. Social naturism and body positivity gives us the opportunity to make meaningful connections with each other. It’s important for us to host diverse, everybody is welcome. We are LGBTQ friendly.
Sebo is born in the autumn of 1966 in the Netherlands. He is the owner of a consultancy firm specialized in learning organizations. He is also writing his thesis about organisational agility and learning networks. Here also the ideas of permaculture are applicable, because using the benefits of diversity and "companion planting" are also fundamental for learning from each other. We are also developing a learning network with people who join our project.
Bastiaan is born in the summer of 1966. He is an easy-going and passionated man also born in the Netherlands. He has a background is an professional operasinger and former elite soldier. His favorite opera is Parsifal from R. Wagner. Books he likes to read are: 'Walden' by D.Thoreau or L' etranger by A. Camus. He is graduated as an applied eco psychologist and also works as a ecological advisor and nature coach.
We, Sebo and Bastiaan are a happily married gay couple for 27 years and the proud fathers of 2 kids. Feel free to write us if you have any questions.
Sure, you give us some real physical help with helping in the food forest and working in the vegetable garden. We also building terrace walls and chopping some wood. Every week we are doing a beautiful ritual to celebrate the harvesting of sage and making sage-syrup.
But the uniqueness of our ecological project is what we mentioned before: Living the change and get empowered to share inspiring stories for a sustainable future.
Are you interested in connecting more deeply with the earth, the animals, the plants, the water and your inner nature? Would you like to feel that this is a fantastic experience that gives us vitality, liveliness and enthusiasm? Do you have the desire to live like an ecological person who respects the earth and chooses a lifestyle that suits it? Don’t hesitate and drop us some lines.

Our accommodation is a ancient stone build farmhouse. The farm is situated on the southern slope of a mountain in the Ardeche (Rhône-Alpes). Surrounded by a forest of seven hectares. The river Bésorgues flows along the farm. We have three beautiful rooms to accommodate our volunteers. A spacious loft. One bedroom with two single beds and the former stable "La Bergerie". The Bergerie has a small kitchen and a double bed. We share the sanitary facilities and you will live in the farmhouse as part of the family.
We are surrounded by beautiful hiking and biking trails and canyoning possibilities. Opportunities for climbing are very close. But the most added value we provide is the opportunity to make a deep and spiritual connection with nature and therefore with yourself.
What volunteers say about us:
"Bastiaan and Sebo are two friendly hosts that are always available to help you and to teach their knowledge about gardening design and permaculture. Their project include several activities all in respect of the nature and the environment."
"We had here the opportunity to try a naturism experience. At the beginning we were both shy but after some hours all was very normal for us. Thanks in particular for the behavior of the hosts that made us absolutely comfortable.
"We really advise you to choose this place to help for a nice project that we found fascinating and inspiring!"
"Naturism has been a liberating and life changing experience for me. I never made such a deep connection with myself and nature. The meditation and yoga sessions at the river were so spiritual. Basti and Sebo, thank you so much for everything, see you next year."
