We are a couple who have swapped the office for the outdoors and are renovating an old stone farmhouse in the beautiful mountains of the Cevennes region in the south of France. Our land is in a secluded valley just 5 minutes walk from a small village and 5 minutes drive from a medium sized town. We have a caravan and a camping area for visitors on a terrace below the house with several tents each with a foam mattress and bed linen. There is mains water and electricity and a indoor washroom with flushing toilet and an outdoor solar heated shower cabin.
Shade for siestas and picnics with chairs and tables is on a wisteria covered terrace. We eat in the shade or under the stars at night by fire light. We cook a la Francaise what we grow in our own organic garden and choose from the local seasonal produce. There is always a variety of jobs to be done in the garden. The valley is terraced with walls needing repair or rebuilding and the farmhouse had been empty for several decades so there will be a whole lot of things to do for some time. We have finished replacing the roof and have put in some new floors and windows and made a staircase from local wood. We are making progress with the wiring and plumbing and can now enjoy the new woodstove and fancy floor tiles.
