We (Yannic 37 and Monique 33) moved to France after a year of traveling in Australia and New-Zealand. Inspired by the most amazing places, permaculture sites and nature, we decided to create our own little paradise.
Five years ago we purchased a large barn with 2.6ha of beautiful south-sloping land with our own water sources, a small stream and view on a castle!
Lots has happened since : -we have changed the roof and covered it with wooden shingles, -we have built a small apartment in the barn, -lots of landscaping and planting took place, creating a veggie garden, an orchard, a chicken pen...

Monique works as a sustainable architect, quite busy working from the home-office. Yannic works as a builder of eco-houses and has just finished a large project. From august on, he will be starting a new building phase in the renovation our own barn. He will attack the south-facing wall: the stones have to come out and windows have to go in! He could definitely use some help!

We can offer two small caravans as accommodation, which both have a double bed. We are surrounded by the beautiful and wild Correze-landscape, which is hilly and very lush and green. There are a few swimming lakes nearby and a lot of hiking trails that depart right from the house. If you like, you can also use our bikes.

We have a dog and 2 cats, we speak french, english and dutch. We have many times been helpx-ers ourselves, and hope to continue these great experiences as hosts! Bring your energy and a positive attitude!
See you soon!
