We (Yannic 37 and Monique 33) moved to France after a year of traveling in Australia and New-Zealand. Inspired by the most amazing places, permaculture sites and nature, we decided to create our own little paradise.
Five years ago we purchased a large barn with 2.6ha of beautiful south-sloping land with our own water sources, a small stream and view on a castle!
Lots has happened since : -we have changed the roof and covered it with wooden shingles, -we have built a small apartment in the barn, -lots of landscaping and planting took place, creating a veggie garden, an orchard, a chicken pen...

Monique works as a sustainable architect, quite busy working from the home-office. Yannic works as a builder of eco-houses and has just finished a large project. From august on, he will be starting a new building phase in the renovation our own barn. He will attack the south-facing wall: the stones have to come out and windows have to go in! He could definitely use some help!

Hi there, I am Scott and I live here in the South Haute Vienne part of the Limousin. It is very quiet, rural and beautiful! One of the least populated areas in France in fact. I have and old farm which gradually is being allowed to re-live, not as a working farm but a home and residence for visitors.
As you can imagine it is a lot to handle alone so helping hands are very welcome.
I live a vegetarian, sometimes vegan life so like minded people would be great!
I have with me OBI the rescued dog, Mimi the cat and 11 sheep who like to eat grass and are pets.
I would be very grateful if I could recrute help for 4 to 5 hours a day in return for accomodation with food and drinks.
Work could be tending to the veg patch or polytunnel, mending fencing, renovating the buildings and such like.
I live 6km from the town of Oradour sur Vayres which has a supermarket, bakeries etc
Also about 15 mins drive away is a freshwater swimming lake of St Mattieu with sand beach, this is free... more inside
