Hello you, I'm Thomas, two children living here for 20 years and growing sheep on a 80 hectare forest and field place.
Since always, my house has been open, and helpex is for me, a way to carry on sharing nice work, with nice people in a nice place.

It's a well kept old traditionnal farm, at 4 kms from the little village, lost in the forest, very calm, lot of foot path with rivers next to here.

On a side of this land, a non commercial activity has taken place, witch is made first to awake school children about their environnemnt, we also have there a permaculture veg garden, self construction events, and some activities around the biodiversity along the little wild rivers of the area.

I use to welcome 2 to 4 visitors at the same time, to have an independant and friendly team !
Sometime, a visitor choose himself something to do in the place : Save this tree, carrying this wood, repairing this wall, without any push from anyone here. I don't mean i will never give any direction, and most of the time, there is something precise to do, but it's just mean he feel concerned, and that's very cool.

The visitors here got their own place, with independant bedrooms and kitchen, shower, and laundry. It's not already without any nuclear electric power, but we're working on it ! we eat all together most of the time.

(I'm not a very good cooker, so this skill is really wanted here !!)

And sorry for this, but our friends cats and dogs can't come here, and it's not negociable....we're already fitted with a large wild life around ! Location is between Bayonne and Bordeaux The train station next to here is Morcenx, beach at 20 kms, ok for surfing.
