We are a married couple and used this site in 2013 with great success. We have lived in France now for about 11 years, and we enjoy the relaxed lifestyle afforded by a rural location, in a beautiful part of France. We live on the outskirts of a small village, with the town of Saint Mathieu being about 5 Km away,where essential services are available- i.e Doctors, pharmacy, Supermarket and shops etc. Both Limoges and Angouleme are both approximately 45kms away.

We share our environment with our 4 "Mousketeers" (cats), whom, we think,enjoy living with us as much as we enjoy having them.
We, as a couple, undertake virtually all of the tasks necessary for living as independently as possible - from gradually bringing our old farmhouse a little more up to date, trying to grow as much vegetables as we can & maintaining the grounds, to building a swimming pool that we completed last year

However, herein lies the problem: It is the latter objective (the pool), which we have bee... more inside

From ecological to off-grid

On our way from ecological to off-grid we are looking for help. We did allready many projects, but we like to do more...
We are a dutch couple, living with our two young daughters on the countryside of middle-france.
For a part we live selfsupporting and ecologic through solarpanels, wood-burning stove, windmill, organic garden and chickens.

Do you like it to join us to improve those ecologic projects or do you like it to help us with other projects, then we have a house on our property available.
Maybe, if you want to move to France, you can see this as a try-out.

Many options are possible. A few weeks voluntery work, take your own yurt with you, live off-grid or build a selfsupporting building for to live in on our property.

LAST MINUTE OPPORTUNITY - SEPTEMBER 2016

Come and help us out in quiet, rural France, doing some traditional roofing work preparation, general labouring, odd jobs, maybe a bit of gardening and helping us to finish a small cob house with a living roof.

We live in central France, in Creuse, which is one of the most beautiful and quietest parts of France. It's perfect if you like peace and solitude. Creuse is the main farming region of France and we're surrounded by rolling countryside and farm animals.

Dotted around are swimming lakes, the occasional park, chateaux and natural attractions. It's all about nature and tranquility here.

Here is our nearest village with some local point sof interest - http://www.tourismeboussac.fr/en/index.html

.............................

The work

We're renovating an old barn, to be converted into a house, and we're also in the middle of building a small cob cottage next to it. We need to get the main work done before Winter hits, so... more inside

LE COUP DE MAIN
A côté des travaux quotidiens de la ferme, nous réaliserons des travaux dans la maison à partir de cet été. Les deux premiers chantiers seront la ré-organisation de l'atelier de bricolage, et la fabrication de briques d'adobe. Pour la suite, le programme n'est pas encore établi précisément, mais il y aura des ouvertures à créer dans les murs pour accueillir des fenêtres, la construction d'un poêle de masse, la remise à nu des murs en pierre actuellement enduits de crépis, la fabrication de meubles de cuisine, et peut-être des travaux d'isolation. Et bien sûr du jardinage pour servir de beaux légumes à table.
