Welcome to Cécile and Christophe's home !

SORRY No more volunteers at la Clairière du verbamont



We are a french couple. with 2 young kids, Timéo, 6 years old,and Yanaël, 4 years old.
Cécile stays at home and takes care of our kids. She used to be a teacher in primary school.

Christophe is a cook by trade , and passionate by eco-building (he built 3 eco houses) .

We moved in 2012 to a nice piece of land in the middle of the forest in the Vosges, with endless possibility for entousiastic helpers who want to give their ideas, their help.
Christophe is in charge of the campsite.

Cécile is in charge of the garden and animals.
-a big permaculture (agroforesterie) vegetable garden with chicken, ducks, rabbits, sheeps, with a greenhouse, ...
- arboretum (giant sequoia...)
- cooking preserves, drying herbs, making lacto-fermentation...

Our goal is to go toward "reasonable" self-sufficiency, we have a vegetable garden, make preserves of products from our garden or picked in the wild, we prefer local products, we try to respect the seasonal products, we are not big consumers, we try to re-use everything, we do a lot with our hands...

We love Nature (plants, animals, humans, minerals, energies, relations,...) and try to give it love, at least to respect it... We're not vegetarian

Accomodation in your separate bedroom.
We prefer helpers who have an interest in our lifestyle.
We speak english, German and a little bit of Spanish.
We ask our helper to work 5 hours/day + one day off. We prefer longer stay (if connection between you and our family), 2-3 weeks minimum.

We can pick you up in Vittel train station or -closer for us- in Darney bus station (every day in the week).
If you plan to come by car, when you're in Darney : go to the direction of Bains les bains, after 2 km (the "cafe de la gare"), SECOND road on your right going to "la hutte", cross the forest for 5 km , when you arrive at "la hutte", look for the sign "camping La clairière du Verbamont", an other km up then you will see a big clearing on your right.

See you soon !!

Due to particular conditions at the moment please contact for infos.

Cecile, Christophe, Timéo and Yanaël
