La région est très belle et la maison originale : nous vivons dans un écohabitat, un Dôme en bois, qui tourne, au milieu des vignes et des collines, dans le Tarn, entre Albi et Toulouse. Vous pourrez visiter de nombreux villages médiévaux (bastides), vous baigner et faire des randonnées.
J'ai une chambre d'hôtes, pouvant accueillir deux personnes, qui sera à disposition du ou des hôtes venant nous aider.
Je cuisine bio, végétarien, une cuisine très variée et créative, inspirée de mes nombreux voyages. J'ai récemment arrêté l'activité de table d'hôte, mais j'organise des formations de cuisine végétarienne.

Je suis seule avec mes deux enfants Vitali et Marie (11 et 9 ans) ; j'attends de l'aide, tant pour entretenir le domaine (intérieur, extérieur, bricolage ...), que pour s'occuper ponctuellement des enfants. Ce sera un plaisir d'échanger et partager mon expérience.
Les personnes pouvant rester un long temps sont les bienvenues.

Dear Helper,
Welcome to La Vermilliere!

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette & Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm (La Vermillière) at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

In order to get an appropriated answer, please read the entire description, and when you contact us, answer to the question we ask at the end.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose B&B with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and ... more inside
