Hi,

We just bought a former farm in Burgundy, with 2 hectares surrounded by fields and woods!

We have a lot of works to do on one of the outhouses, a former barn that we want to renovate to be an extension of the main house, which we want to be a passive house.

A big part of the 2 hectares are devoted to our poney (and his future friend), and we will organize it as a paddock paradise. The rest will be our garden, where we are beginning to create an organic vegetable garden and plant trees and medicinal plants following the principles of permaculture.

Lisa : I'm a veterinarian, working mainly with horses, and also dogs and cats. I use a lot phythotherapy, aromatherapy and homeopathy in my work, and I'm also interested in micronutrition, behaviour study... In my free time I like reading a lot about various things, writing, photography, spending time in nature, learning languages...

Greg : I'm a real estate agent, I'm very sociable, I like sports, reading and learning... more inside

Organic Status: We do our best, in our own way

Dear Helper,
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 (La Vermillière) at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Seven 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 of rabbits, a couple of pink pigs, a dog (Lila) and two cats (Tango & Samba), along with a vegetable garden of 600 sq. meters and an ... more inside

La région est très belle et la maison originale : nous vivons dans un écohabitat, un Dôme en bois, qui tourne, au milieu des vignes et des collines, dans le Tarn, entre Albi et Toulouse. Vous pourrez visiter de nombreux villages médiévaux (bastides), vous baigner et faire des randonnées.
J'ai une chambre d'hôtes, pouvant accueillir deux personnes, qui sera à disposition du ou des hôtes venant nous aider.
Je cuisine bio, végétarien, une cuisine très variée et créative, inspirée de mes nombreux voyages. J'ai récemment arrêté l'activité de table d'hôte, mais j'organise des formations de cuisine végétarienne.

Je suis seule avec mes deux enfants Vitali et Marie (10 et 8 ans) ; j'attends de l'aide, tant pour entretenir le domaine (intérieur, extérieur, bricolage ...), que pour s'occuper ponctuellement des enfants. Ce sera un plaisir d'échanger et partager mon expérience.
Les personnes pouvant rester un long temps sont les bienvenues.
