*** from mid june to mid september I can't accomodate helpers. So if this is your traveling time, you don't need to write. For me it is sad to get mails from nice people and I have to refuse for that reason! ***


Hi, my name is Florian. Born in Germany, raised half there, half in France. In Germany I worked for some time in the emergancy ambulance services and some time in a carpenters workshop. The I did study architecture. I than ran my own espresso-bar, sold it and finally I ended in France, owning 4 old stone houses close to the Mediterranean and the Spanish border.

There is a nice landscape around and view to the Mediterranean. The project is situated in a tiny village. A good place to enjoy the nature and the french savoir vivre and some good food in a nice company. And the weather is usually nice!

Two of my houses are rented as holiday-homes, or used to lodge helpers ;-) The other houses are rented to some very nice and relaxed french people, which makes a very nice and relaxed neighbourhood, and if you like to have a chat with coffee or tea in the sun: That is likely to happen!
Well, it's not only about relaxing, the houses are in constant need of maintenance and development, so anyone with building, gardening or decorating skills would be very welcome. The garden is a big, nice eco-project on a very interesting terrain, the working title is "eco-paradise-project in developement"

There is a vast amount of creative stuff to be done, and before it gets boring there might be something to clean or to sew. Feel free to offer any kind of support, there would be also some web stuff, and photos and videos to be made.

Help would also be much appreciated on the land with some landscape and garden work. A cistern is filled up with 50m3 of water for the some land resting green and colorful throughout summer. A water retention system needs some work, it was started last year with some helpX, and the development goes on...

So some good work for the nature is also included in the package I offer!

Accommodation is provided in a shared house with other helpers or even possibly a house to yourself. The next village of Fourques is served by a 1 bus.
There is possibilitys to go to the citys around and see something of the area. No need to stick to the village on days off... but the time can as well be enjoyed here. Saturday may include a trip to the markets of Thuir or Ceret. It's about beeing in France!
