Ross and I have been taking care of an elderly couple with Alzheimers, and now they have passed away. We are busy building our dream of a bike lodge here in South West France. I am a visual artist and specialize in monumental welded steel sculpture. Ross is an amazing musician and is very eclectic, and is also doing most of the construction renovation work on his own! He needs help!
The property we live on is big and contains 36 fruit trees, a small forest that was recently thinned out. The fruit trees are all organic and need pruning, and picking of fruit in the right season.
We are building a super exciting bike lodge and need people with strong hands and skills! We need help with the renovation with work such as tiling, painting, building shelves, and waterproofing. Soon a new sewage link will be put in and there will be landscaping work to be accomplished as well.
The property has many trees that need pruning and wood needs to be split as well as branches hauled from one end... more inside

Welcome to a piece of land about life in nature, which is slow, simple, pretty to watch.

We are Kévin (29 from Belgium) and Alice (30 from France) currently living on about 2 hectares of wild nature. We changed our life three years ago, leaving the city and all its habits for the wonders of countryside.

Our place is to experiment permaculture, to connect with people and animals, to build natural structures, to learn about autonomy, to discover the wisdom of our hands, to create and exchange knowledge.

Here there are a yurt, a wood hut, a geodesic greenhouse, a vegetable garden. Also fruit trees, a ruin full of life, phyto-purification (pools to clean used water), solar panels and rainwater tanks, two cats, three sheeps, a rooster and three hens. There are also a large range of wild animals passing by, like frogs, owls, roe deer, squirrels, ...
