This Burgundy area offers no wine makers but has many cycling and marked walking trails, a very rich biodiversity and 4 seasons which have each their own charm.

The aim for my permaculture project is to become self sufficient in energy and food by growing fruit and vegetables organically in my heaven a permaculture garden/orchard. I m originally a flatlander from the Netherlands but now living in a small hamlet in the beautiful hills in the Parc regional du Morvan surrounded by nature.

It is great to live in and with nature and offer wild life an interesting habitat, so it can develop as rich as possible. The gardens are registered refuge by the Ligue Pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO).
Long term helpers can tend a permaculture design course. Books about permaculture in English and Dutch are available.
In winter I work as a permaculture designer.

All sort of work to help out depending on the season. In the vegetable garden & orchard grow and harvest food,( mushrooms on locks), with the restoration of my in 1875 constructed farm using traditional building methods when possible. There are some chickens, bees and the dogs Sam and Joep to take care for. Building rocket stoves, resize the original wood fired bread oven,construct stairs, insulate the new roof,install panels,cut and take care for firewood,in the kitchen making marmalade, tofu or tempeh. Picking apples and making apple juice and maybe some cider and we started brewing our own beer and baking our own bread.

I can offer a two persons eco shelter in my garden (you can see it on my blog) a guest room in winter or you can pitch your tent in the back garden.
Life is simple, we enjoy good food, it can be vegetarian, vegan or world kitchen and there is a internet connection to the outer world. It is a small setting, Denault has only 8 houses and we live here with 6 people permanently,in winter even less sometimes. This is the tenth year helpers are welcome.

Lac de Panneciere, a big lake is a 30 minutes walk nearby for a nice swim or fishing, if you can enjoy it you can practice some archery,paint, hike some trails, play table tennis or take the mountain bikes out for a ride.

I speak speak Dutch, German, English and basic French.
If you love nature and a pure sustainable life you can be happy in Denault.
