Hello, I m a flatlander originally from the Netherlands but now living in a small hamlet in the beautiful hills in the Parc regional du Morvan surrounded by great nature.

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

I m restoring my old farmbuilding, it s my third in this hamlet and grow fruit and vegetables organically for our own use and follow permaculture principals. In winter I work as a permaculture designer.
There are some chickens, bees and the dogs Sam and Joep to take care for who might join you for a walk.
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). Denault is very good place to live and inviting HelpXers makes the place perfect.

It is nice to exchange stories recipe's and experiences. Cooking, painting and sculpture, practice archery, reading, modern art, music,long walks and mushroom hunting are some of the activities to enjoy.
All sort of work to help out depending on the season. In the vegetable garden, orchard with the restoration of walls and the roof of my 1865 constructed farm using traditional building methods when possible, building rocket stoves, resize the original wood fired bread oven,construct stairs,insolate the new roof,install term.solar panels,cut and take care for firewood, chickens and bee's, in the kitchen making marmalade, tofu or tempeh. Picking apples and making apple juice and maybe some cider and we are thinking of brewing or own beer.

The farm I live in is still partly under contructing but it I can offer a two persons eco shelter in my garden (you can see it on my blog we finished it recently ), 3 meals a day in exchange of 5 hours/day.
In spring,summer and autumn you can also pitch a tent in my garden, a hammock to relax surrounded by chickens, growing vegetables,herbs and fruits.
When it is going to be colder it might be possible to use my neighbour Jacqueline s house when she is in Nl. We just renovated this house.
Life is simple but we enjoy good food, it can be vegetarian, vegan or world kitchen and there is a internet connection to the outher world.It is a small setting, Denault has only 8 houses and we live here with 6 people permanently. This is the seventh year helpxers and wwoofers are welcome.

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

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