    We (Duke&Miek) are a dutch couple that lives in an old farmhouse in Haute-Saône with our dog Kierah. The farmhouse is from 1722, So inside, outside and in the garden we are always busy.
    It depends on the season what we are doing.
    Spring is for cleaning up from winter, repairing and starting with the biological vegetables garden and starting New projects.
    Summer is for keeping up the garden, weeding, cutting grass, repairing and doing small construction. Also: we run a Bed&Breakfast, So That takes up most of our time.
    Fall is for cleaning up from summer, harvesting, preparing the Food for winter (dehydraties, chutneys, marmelades, etc), cutting wood for the winter.
    Winter is for cleaning the tools, doing inside work and resting up.
    In 2021 we are doing some smaller projects and later in the year a big construction project.
    We still have dreams to improve our place, but age is catching up to us a little, so we need the energy you bring to us.

    A little bit more About us:
    Duke is musician and artiest by heart. He loves blues music, plays the guitar and enjoys sharing the things he learned in life. The physical Work has become too hard on him but this does not mean he does not have Any creative ideas anymore.
    Miek used to be a social worker, who is now Very happy with her hands in the soil. She loves to cook, is a good listener and enjoys having guests (most of the time).

    In wintertime, we love to take our camper and Go south. Can’t wait for covid to leave So travelling Will become possible again.

    We live in a small community. We had our careers and decided Some years ago to quit the hectic life. Travellers can learn About french way of living, alternative way of living (we try to live of the land, we have great respect for the environment, we still know what neighbourly means), learn the french language, but also german and/or english.
    And If you love to make music, you are also at the right address here.
    We are volunteers in a cultural café, where we have saturday afternoon coffee/tea and cake and where we meet a lot of other people who live in the area and/or up in the mountains. Also once a month there is an concert with various kinds of music.

    Our next projects:
    * building an eco toilet outside
    * building a roof over the caravan (which Will be Your ‘Tiny house’)
    * with wood: laying a Floor, finishing a wall with isolation and wood and building a strong door in That room.

    But: Actually, we can use different skills. If you like to cook, If you are technical, If you like to use your hands, If you like to be outside, if you like to be creative with wood, If you would like to do one of our projects and finish it, If you like to work hard a couple of hours and then enjoy the mountain life, you are most welcome, there’s always something to do.

    In 2021 we hope to start with building a veranda (from wood of course), but we have a local crew for that.
