  • Description

    Description

    We would like to keep traveling from our new home!
    After three years of cycling and volunteering from Strasbourg to New zealand, it's our turn to host travelers!
    We want to stay in contact with this feeling of "being on the road", to sharpen our gaze, to find out what's new in our daily routine.
    We love meeting new people, from the neighbours next door to the one coming from a far and unknown place.
    Settling in a house is our new adventure and we'd love to share it. We wanted a big house that would be open to other people. We love the idea that others can enjoy the place in accordance with their own intent or project and that we can all contribute to make this house a lively place.

    We are a family of four (two boys of 3 and 7 years old). We live in a farm type house in the Vosges. At 700 meters high, the place is surrounded by 5 hectares of forest, meadow and spring.

    We have great interests in volunteer simplicity, permaculture, zero waste, autonomy, less impact way of life... We're collecting informations, experimenting, trying our best, at our own rythm. We also have interest in mindfulness/meditation. We'd like to grow more of our food and be a bit more self-sufficient (but we are still far from that...). And at the same time, our children are "home-schooled" and we also work outside. That's why we need help in the house.

    Christophe works for a caritative organisation. I (Estelle) am a mediator (Conflict Resolution with NonViolent Communication process).

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are not a farm nor have we big projects going on, we're just a family who tends to live a more simple life, close the nature. The kids and us love receiving visitors and just sharing our daily life, talks, walks, or other activities.
    We'll be glad to share with you our passion for nature, wild plants, vegetable garden, vegetarian food (we cook a lot!), zero waste, education, communication, meditation and so on. We are not very experienced gardeners, but we love to grow food and we do a lot of things by ourselves. We'll be happy to share with you how we make bread, fresh pastas, natural yeast, kefir, yogourt, toothpaste and so on...! We're also happy to help you practice your French if it's one of the reason of your stay.

    Please note that the house is quite isolated. So if you don't have a car, I reckon it's better if you love walks, and being in the nature. We can drive you the village, or to Saint-Dié-des-Vosges once a week as we are going there for activities. Christophe drives close to Strasbourg every 2 days so it could be an option if you want to visit this city and spend a night there. Otherwise the village is a 40 minutes walk. We can also lend you a bicycle.

    To visit the rest of the area, some of our guests sometimes hitch-hike.
    Walks and cross country skiing paths start from our house. Few weeks a year there is plenty of snow just around the house. We are 20 minutes away from the Lac Blanc ski resort. There are bigger ski resort 30 to 40 minutes away (La Bresse, Gerardmer...). It's not as big as the Alpes but you can still have fun there. Those stations are open in January and February for sure, sometimes December and March, but that's not guaranteed. In the summer we like climbing, walking, cycling and swimming at the Longemer Lake (20 minutes driving). We're 20 minutes away from the Alsacian WineRoad (Route des Vins) and the beautiful medieval village of Kaysersberg. We are also 10 minutes away from the Route of the Ridges of the Vosges mountains (Route des Crêtes).

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    We love cooking. We enjoy healthy but simple food (lots of vegetables, cereals, as much as possible local, organic and zero waste). I don't eat meat, but the boys do from time to time.
    There is Internet access.
    Children and families are welcome.
    You are welcome to join us in our weekly activities.
    Our house is in upper Fraize. The nearest train station is 20-25 minutes away in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges.

    We prefer to host for a minimum of 2 weeks, but one month or more is ideal.
