This is a future organic farm, close to a very nice little village with rivers and mountains, in the Cevennes' National Parc.

This is a very beautiful place with a nice landscape, but for now it is very primitive. It is 10min walking from town, no road, you will have your own private room but there is no water inside the house, only solar shower. There is electricity and mobiles work.

It is better if you join me by phone than the internet. This place has been left to itself for 50 years and I'm fixing it. You will be welcomed by my donkey Pompon, always enjoying new people.

Our place is lying in the middle of untouched garrigue, in the mountains of "nature park of languedoc", about 30km from the Mediterranean Sea. For pictures, see homepage.
There are horses, dogs, goats, chickens and cats, which need to be fed. Also the fences must be controlled and weeding is required.
The several houses of the farm are build of natural stones, which always need maintenance, painting with natural colours, building walls with natural stones.
The helpers would live in a little studio with kitchen and bathroom. We take one meal together, the others according to personal wish. Working is about 5 to 6 hours a day, the large part you can organize according to your rhythm. For the renovation of the houses, the artistic aspect is very important to us.
Sometimes we have guests and we are doing seminars for riders with special requests and artists to whom the horse gives an interesting "feedback" in their creative process.

We have a village house in the Eastern Pyrenees, 30km from Perpignan just off the N116,with a small olive plantation of 60 trees on 1/3 hectare. I have excavated a 12m x 8m hole in order to create a pond on it. The bottom of the pond will be lined with ready mix concrete and the walls will be made of small rocks and big pebbles taken from the stream which runs at the bottom of the land and also from the surface of the land itself.

So, I am offering bed and board for 2 helpers this summer 2011 to help me gather these stones, i.e. load them into the back of my Renault Espace which I drive over the land and unload them near the site of the future pond. The helpers would work for 2 hrs a day in the morning and I estimate that this job would take about 4/5 days max. Then if they wanted, they could stay on to help with the concreting or alternatively to weed the olives and cut the grass down by the stream, cut wood etc...

The region is spectacular, and the village of Rods looks ou... more inside
