  • Description


    We are a couple, Catalina from Chile and Cyril from France recently installed in an old farm in the North of Lot. We also are shepherds in Cantal during the summer from June to September.

    After a long journey through Russia, South Korea and Japan, we bought a house with a stable / barn and a 12ha plot with sheeps, goats and soon a donkey and a lama :)
    We make many delicious products for ourself and brew our own beer. We are located near a small town where you can find everything you need with a market once a week. There is a lake (Lac du Tolerme) at 5 minutes from bicycle from our place. As Said before, we are surounded by animals :), sheep's, goats, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and more ...

    This place have a great potential but needs lot's of work as it's quite old. We will have to renovate the entire place so we will really enjoy your help, motivation and knowledge ;)

    We love to eat, cook and share recipes from around the world. We are not vegetarian as we grow up our animal (sheep) in order to eat them. However, we only eat meat ones in a while and we have no problem with receiving vegetarian and vegan people.
    We really enjoy to receive people, have good time and share our experiences.
    We speak French, Spanish and English and would like to learn Russian and Japanese :)

    From June to September, we are shepherd in a mountain at one hour and a half by car. We take care of about 800 sheeps in a place called Lioran, it's a small ski resort.

    Our place will be in charge of neighbors and friends during this summer but we come back in October :)

    In our house from October to May our projects are many and diverse :
    _ Our priority is to renovate a barn in order to make it habitable for this winter so we have already finished the roof and now come the inside part. We will make straw clay insulation, electricity, plumbing and many others...
    Knowledge of electricity and plumbing will be very welcome.
    - Renovate the floor of the barn
    - Build enclosures, shelters and others for animals
    - Make and take care of a vegetable garden
    - many carpentry and DIY projects of all kinds
    - help us with the brewery, clean up bottles, help in the making process.
    - We also always need firewood for heating the house and for the pizza oven!

    And on a daily basis we need help to feed and take care of the animals, cook meals and maintain ordered and clean the common places.
    We truly believe in self gestion so we appreciate people who can take initiative.
    Our activities depend greatly on the seasons and the climate.
