** Help needed from january 5th onwards... with the arrival of the baby, plus the little boy, plus the house...! **
OUR FAMILY AND PLACE :
We, Marion and Clément, are a couple with a little boy, Eliott (2 1/2 years old) living in an old farm, in the middle of nowhere. We are surrounded by forests and fields at an altitude of 1250 meters. We have great view overlooking the mountains of the Massif Central. The place feels wild and pure. We`re totally isolated from other houses and roads : there is a 1,4 km dirt track to reach our farm from the main road. We are actually situated on a pass called «col de la Charousse» which divides the Ardèche department from the Haute-Loire department.
OUR PROJECT is to renovate the house and the barn. We want to open a hosting place, a place where we share ideas and energies.
First we renovate the house where we live in.
Then the barn, where we will hold children scholar trips, holiday camps, workshops (clowning, drawing, chess, cooking), concerts, chess tournaments, exhibitions...
ABOUT US :
Marion is an drawing artist, comic author and wild herbs lover. Clément heads a non-profit organisation which uses clowning and chess workshops in under-priveledged, clown, and street art and jazz passionate.
We mainly eat vegetarian and local food which is only organic.
We both speak french, english and spanish. Clément is a french and english native speaker. I have french as my native tongue.
I think our vision of the world, and Life, is, maybe special and rare, but personal and it`s what we`d like to share with you !
The strong relation to nature of this place, and the countryside rythm of life of the area, are the main reasons we`ve chosen to live here.
ABOUT YOU :
You`ll sleep in a cosy room, on the 2nd floor. Food is organic, mostly local. Simple and tasty meals. Meat sometimes (like once or twice a week).
More than asking this help, we'd like to share daily life with open-hearted people!
We'd like to host open, relax, helpful and curious people!
Lots of paths for walking!
We can bring you to the town when we go shopping!
There are yoga courses around, and events of that kind.
And sometimes art exhibitions, concerts and balls!
TO FIND US:
Train to Saint-Etienne or Lyon. Bus to Annonay. Then hitch-hiking to us, or we`ll pick you up in Annonay ! It`s the closest town, the one we shop in, ½ hour away.
