A Rustic, Organic Mountain Paradise.

My partner and I (who is from England, I am from France), live in the french Pyrennes, with our boy, Zephyr (3 years old).

The place is beautifull, very quiet and far from the city. There s lots of nice walks to do in the area, and breathtaking scenery.

This year's projects include, finishing our bathroom, make a new dry toilet outside, and a new wood shelter. These are priority jobs, then there are lots of smaller jobs that are always going on. The garden always needs loving attention, there is wood to be cut, chopped and collected, and since we live directly on the mountainside there is always terrassing to make some flat lands, and general landscaping projects. We work with organic materials in a sustainable way.
We also ve got the project to get few goats.

Even for people who want to come and help with cooking, including transformation of foods (conserves, lactofermentation etc.) and other domestic work are most welcome. there is... more inside

Located on the south-west coast of France, we own an old farm . We (Daniel and Patricia) will host you in a convivial atmosphere for two ,three weeks minimum.

Organic Status: we do our best, on our own way

Dear Helpers,

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 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 APPROPRIATE ANSWER, PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION, AND WHEN YOU CONTACT US, ANSWER TO THE QUESTIONS 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 chickens, a little flock of sheep, a bunch o... more inside
