Caroline and her adult daughter Soreya.
We are both french. We spent the past 10 years in London running a small business until the sudden sanitary crisis changed our lives. Caroline then decided to realise a long time dream of owning a house in the countryside and grow her own food. Soreya is still transitioning between London and South of France.
We found the perfect house in South of France more precisely in a region called Gers.
Its typical L shape farm connected by a porch. We have a half hectare of land attached to the house.
We are at the beginning of a new project that includes Permaculture and Yoga seminars.
The house is large with an annex that needs to be renovated in order to become a yoga studio. We are not running a business at this point.
We are mostly vegetarians with an occasional farm poultry on the menu. We cook every meal and avoid processed and transformed products. We cannot provide balanced vegan diet.
We do not drink alcohol nor smoke but we tolerate moderate and occasional use of our visitors.
We have a cat.

Many years back we use to host Couch surfers and most of them have become long lasting friends.

We can teach french language and cuisine.

We have quite lot to do, not necessarily in that order : evaluate the best possibilities for rain water harvesting, built dry toilets, start designing and building up the vegetable garden, take care of the actual ornament garden and fruit trees, bits of carpentry, paintings and general household tasks. There's no real hurry in finishing it all and we prefer hosting someone who will bring some specific skills or enthusiasm to the scene and commits to completing a task of their choice. Unless until then we realise we have to deadline to meet.
Please let us know wha specific skills you have and we will honestly tell you if we are a good match for you.
Shared bedroom and bathroom inside the house. We tend to have our meals together and share the preparation.
The region is very touristic and absolutely stunning. All the outdoor activities one can think of are available in the area.

I do not have the technical equipment to connect a campervan to electricity and water but it would be great chance for me and the next visitors to learn and set up what is needed.
