  • Descrição


    We are Tom and Marlies from Belgium. we are two vegetarian, permaculture-minded young (34) people who like working in nature, playing games, and living a natural way of life.. In april last year we felt in love with a spot in the French Pyrenees and bought it. It's a very natural quiet place (no cars passing, drinking sources, green all around, little river,..) at about 800 meter hight. At the moment we are very busy trying to build our house (eco-construction), using wood from our forest, and trying to build like in the old days.
    We like to open our place for other people, so we’re not the only ones that can enjoy being here. At this moment, there’s a couple of young French people (Aude and Nico) living in a yurt. We also have from time to time visit from Belgium coming to us, and of course people from workaway and wwoof. We hope in the future to have an even more public project here, but it’s not yet clear what kind of (idea's; social project (time-out), small eco-camping, permaculture-educative center, little fruittree-nursery,...)
    At this moment we prefer to welcome workaway-people that can be quiet independant. From time to time we need a bit of privacy.

    This year we have the focus on the house. We started from a ruïne (3 walls), and we hope to close the roof at the end of the year. The wood is almost ready to start the traditional construction. We need some more hands to unleave the bark of some beams.
    Some places of the walls have to be filt with a sand-chalk mix. Some spaces of the walls have to be build up some more. There is some earth that has to be dug out and transported. And soon we will start to make the wood-connections. Therefore we can also use some strong arms to move huge pieces of wood. But also hands that can do some cutting on the millimeter.
    Next to the building there is also quiet a big garden wich demands help : planting, sewing, weeding, making wooden little constructions and fences, helping with the animals (chickens, cats, donkeys), landcleaning, …
    And of course our stomach likes to be filled with some nice vegeterian cooking. So people who like to do the kitchen (or help with making jams, chutneys,…) from time to time are also very welcome!

    As we have only a little house and no rooms for visiters yet, we can only offer you a small caravan (with a little fire in it) or a place to put your tent. But you can use our warm bath after a sweaty day :) we also don't have internet yet, we use internet when we are in the city (saint-girons).
    If you want to know more, ask us!
