  • Description


    Hello everyone !

    We are a enthousiastic Dutch family with 7 happy young homeschooled children.

    Our house, which is alongside a beautifull river with natural swimming pools , is some 10 km away from the nearest village. There are 60 hectares of land stretching way up into the wild mountains.
    We have many animals; horses, donkeys, chickens, cats, dogs, rabbits .....
    We make organic bread and jams, and live a life of simplicity.

    We like to share our life and work with enthousiastic people willing to be involved and to share.
    People who want to experience a completely different way of life. Far away from society.
    We enjoy the cultural exchange !!

    We have a very small organic fruit farm, a very small camping a la Ferme and some Gîtes for rent in july and August, a big vegetable garden, lots of land to maintain, wood to cut, animals to take care of, an old big mas to restaurate,
    and many many dreams.....
    We appreciate some help with renovation projects, helping in the fields, and taking care of the animals!
    Socialising and education with our children (aged 1-7-8-10-13-15-15 ) is appreciated by all of us.
    They are easy going and really apreciate your presence !

    We have communal meals.

    We are looking forward to meet you !!

    Autres infos...

    The farm is situated in a wild mountainous valley so spare time can be spent walking, swimming and enjoying the nature.
    You might get a hike to a string of nice villages in the valley. Ceret is a beautiful market place well worth a visit especially on saterdays.

    We can pick people up in Amélie les Bains, our nearest village, which can be arrived at by train (to Perpignan) and then bus.
