Winter 2015/2016

A truly beautiful private farm of about 3 hectares with views to Africa, surrounded on all sides by forest and about 35 minutesí walk to the village. We have citrus orchards, plums, pomegranates, figs, cherry, avocadoes and many other kinds of fruit and nut trees to enjoy. Lots of projects in the growing gardens, orchards, greenhouse, as well as with various stages of natural building projects, planting, swales, planning for ponds, and much more. Have been here for 10 years and currently have cats, two dogs and chickens. We are doing organic gardening, applying permacultural principles, biodynamic calendar, sheet mulch (no dig methods), composting, encourage biodiversity in the garden as well as seeds saving. The area of the farm includes several buildings and facilities: eco-house, dome, outdoor kitchen, yurt, bathroom, compost toilet, barn; and we often use clay oven for pizza-making, rocket stove, solar cooker, fire tubs, etc.

Currently, we are looking for someone to spend some time at the farm in exchange of a bit of work. It would be ideal for us to accommodate a couple (with or without children) or an independent individual who will be staying at the yurt for the winter period and starting as soon as possible. We offer accommodation in exchange of a day of work (8 hours), but cannot provide for food (happy to share occasional bottle of wine though!). The yurt is equipped with a stove to keep you warm and there is internet at the farm which you can also use.

Work activities include all aspects of gardening, planting, pruning, watering, composting, mulching as general garden work + ongoing projects (irrigation, new beds, gathering wood for winter...), we'll see :)


Love and encourage music & art, inventing technologies & experimental living. We're interested in alternative energies, technologies and natural building and have studied permaculture design.
