We have been living in the Languedoc, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, for nearly five years now. With the help of family and volunteers, we've been working to transform the property into an organic smallholding with small-scale holiday accommodation, and to move towards a sustainable way of living.

With two-and-a-half hectares of woodland, meadow, orchards and vegetable garden, as well as sheep, chickens, cats and guinea-pigs, there is always plenty to do.

We welcome volunteers from March until October, staying for 2 - 3 weeks. In the summer season we have a small number of paying guests, and really appreciate volunteer help to look after them, and to look after the grounds, the animals and the garden. Out of high season, there is project work to do - small-scale construction, decorating, gardening, woodland management and maintenance.

We welcome people with practical skills and ideas to undertake new projects, but out of season, enthusiasm and commitment are mo... more inside

we are currently seeking people to assist with routine animal care and woodland management, coppicing, cutting and stacking when the weather is dry. We are also renovating the property..A work in progress.


Originally from the North East of Scotland we moved to Central France and bought the abandoned farm in 2008 after selling up in Scotland in 2006 and down-sizing to a camper-van with our two huge dogs and touring around Europe looking for the right place to put down some roots. We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spend time in and have fun!

We are a couple (Laure and Emmanuel + 3 kids aged 5 to 17) and we have “eco-created” a tourism domain in the heart of Amiens’s natural site of the Hortillonnages (floating gardens).

We have 6 hut-like cottages furnished as self-catering cottages but which can be booked as a bed and breakfast. We are offering an eco-friendly stay, without any cars, and fully respectful of nature: cars are left in front of the domain and bikes and/or boats are provided to guests. The town center is only 15 minutes’ walk away.

For april 2018:
