We live in a big 16th century isolated house with approximately 4 hectares of land (mainly chestnut trees). The property is situated in the Cévennes area (about 60 kilometers north of Nîmes) near Lasalle. The people living here are Philippe (full time), Julie (part time, as she often works in Paris), quite often friends who stay with us for a few days, even up to a month, customers (we host personal development, yoga and group psychotherapy retreats), and of course wwoofers ; ) We tend to practice vipassana meditation on a daily basis, and we are musicians. We are (almost) self-sufficient in organic vegetables that we grow exclusively for our own use and we like to experiment with alternative and healthy foods like fermented products (making of tempeh, natto and lacto-fermented carrots). We are keen on welcoming mature independent and responsible volunteers for discovering and participating in our different activities, depending on the time of year: clearing brambles, weeding, picking and processing chestnuts, figs and vegetables, cooking and expanding the vegetable garden. We can't receive volunteers all year round, but for periods ranging from 1 week to 1 month, depending on the number of people already staying in the house. Anyway, when we do host volunteers we try to host more than one at a time (maximum is 5). We hope you'll enjoy organic meals shared with us (mainly vegetarian). Here : Internet connection on a pc, wifi and swimming pool (from May to September). Languages: French, English and a bit of Spanish spoken.
