  • Descrição


    We are a couple who swapped the office for the outdoors and started renovating an old stone farmhouse in the beautiful and spectacular mountains of the Cevennes region in the south of France. Our land is in a secluded valley just 5 minutes walk from a small village and 5 minutes drive from a medium sized town which has all the typical Southern French characteristics as well as lots of local idiosyncrasies.

    There is always a variety of jobs to be done in the garden , the orchards and the surrounding countryside as the seasons change; picking fruits and nuts: plums, cherries, blackberries, wild strawberries, elderberries, mushrooms, chestnuts, walnuts, grapes and apples. The valley is terraced with walls needing repair or rebuilding and the farmhouse had been empty for several decades so there was everything to do. We have put on a new roof, new floors and windows and have a woodstove and a shed full of wood to burn. Lots done but still more to do.
