We are Nadine, Emily and Matthew, friends who all met while working in Ethiopia several years ago. We quickly discovered that we shared a similar vision: to create a beautiful space for people to learn, renew and nurture themselves. This was our motivation behind establishing a holistic, meditation and Yoga sanctuary based on ecological principlesin Chateau Mongoger in Le Loire valley, central France.

We are now starting to bring the project alive. Emily has arrived from Ethiopia last year to initiate and oversee the work that needs to be done. We are now in the second year of the project and now have full a full time french gardener and manager but we are still looking for for peropel to come and help with renovating and preparing this beautiful Chateau so that it evolves and enriches the experience our future

The work we really need assistance with is landscaping for a major food production scheme, coppicing,construction of housing for goats and chickens, renovation of rooms,tree house construction, painting, plimbing and general maintenance.

What we offer in exchange is well-furnished, warm and comfortable accommodation, the opportunity to attend classes and workshops,vegetarian catering, improvement of language skills in English and
French, access to wired Internet as well as the companionship of peacocks, deer, ducks and other Mongoger dwelling animals.
