We are a small, traditional, rural, alpine, farm: goats, sheep, rabbits, ducks, chickens, dogs, cats, vegetable and fruit garden. We practice forestry management and sheep farming (high altitude). We are willing to develop a permacultura system for an innovative way of alpine farming. We always need to rebuild stone walls. We combine advanced techniques with old-style heroic agriculture. We need a lot of help in several fields.

My father lives there alone, he was born there but now he is a bit old. I live in Belgium but I spend the whole summer there and short periods in the other seasons. Several friends of mine will take you on hikes, discovering hidden places and having fun together.

It is an amazing area, astounding natural beauty and off the beatten track. It is very interesting the experience of living in a mountain valley. The life is truly tough, particularly because of the steep slopes and poor ground.

This valley was much more populated in the past but many inhabitants prefered the towns and working in factories. Now farming and forestry managemnt are not business but they are practiced by locals in order to preserve the environment.

We need several kinds of help and we love to share our little world. We are happy if you come for a visit and can offer accommodation ( in a room in the house, several beds in the farm, tents and tent-spaces). If you help us we can also offer you traditional food and local products.
