COVID 19 special mention

Although we appreciate life enough to know the difficulty and the pain of illness and death, we do not think that the situation of this year is more exceptional than another. This virus exists, like an infinity of other viruses, no more, no less. We think it is a great campaign of political manipulation that plays on the fear and emotion of the people. We refuse to participate. So, at our place, life is like everything it has always been, smiling, without masks, without hydroalcoholic gels, without washing hands or nose or whatever every half minute, without particular distances... You are free to choose whether to join us or not.

Bien que nous apprécions suffisamment la vie pour connaître la difficulté et la douleur de la maladie et de la mort, nous ne pensons pas que la situation de cette année soit plus exceptionnelle qu'une autre. Ce virus existe, comme une infinité d'autres virus, ni plus, ni moins. Nous pensons qu'il s'agit surtout d'une grand... more inside

"DUC", our small estate of the eighteenth century, offers spring and summer a place of peace for spa guests, pilgrims and vacationers, in the heart of the refuge of 8.5 ha of woodland, in which we protect the biodiversity of places .

The manor discreetly dominates a small town of Occitania with a very special history that you will have the opportunity to discover, located between Conques, Figeac and Rodez, and crossed many hiking trails, and pilgrimage.

In autumn and winter, we are looking for people who can help us prune and cut trees safely, cut firewood; In spring and summer, to maintain the walking paths inside the estate, mow, clear the brush, maintain the vegetable patch, make woven wooden fences, build nest boxes, etc.

Hi ! (Francais jettez un oeil plus bas merci :) )

I got the chance to give life again to a little piece of paradise at La Bridoire, in Savoie. The land, surrounded by the forest, was used to raise goats and I’m turning it now into an organic farm (only veggies).
There are a lot of nice hikes to do around the place. I’m also living in Chambery, which is close to mountains and a few lakes to spend our days off :)
I can host a person or a couple in a comfortable camper located right into a little chill zone, under the threes and at only a few steps of the cabin.
The cabin is the place where I live during the week and that I share with everyone with pleasure. There is all we need inside to make a fire, to take a shower, to cook delicious meals, to relax… An ideal place to share and enjoy a sweet evening after a working day :)

I’ll ask you to work 6 hrs per day from Monday to Thursday. The farm is really new and everything needs to be done. A good motivation is required but the ... more inside

** Autumn and winter time : the works outside stop.
We would need help with children care and around the house.
And we'd love to share this quiet period with someone that speaks english to our children!
Long stay prefered! (1 month and more)**


OUR FAMILY AND PLACE :
We, Marion and Clément, are a couple with 2 little boys, Eliott (3) & Owen (1) 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 ... more inside

Old stone cottage in a village in the lovely 'Suisse Normande' area close to the River Rouvre. Behind is a piece of sloping neglected land. I'm a newly retired university teacher with years of experience welcoming people to my house in London and am looking for people who would enjoy living simply with somebody else who has a modest income in return for work on the house or in the garden, depending on the weather and your skills and interests. Cyclists very welcome, nearest rail station is 20km away. Currently have a dog, am non-smoker and vegetarian.

Also looking for a dog-sitter for a week, mid -Sept.

*************************************
POST COVID

Now the French borders are open to EU residents I can host again. Very keen to get someone helping with the enormous garden job and other things. Do contact me if you want to try rural France for a few months.
*************************************

IN GENERAL

I am renovating a house in France in the Lot department. The weather is glorious and I love the relaxed attitudes here. There is much to do and it's impossible to list exact details so I have described the general projects below. I am multi-skilled so I am sure we can find exchangeable skills and learn from each other. Briefly mine are: cooking, woodwork (a little), gardening (medium), computing all sorts, DIY generally, sewing, dancing plus more. If you would like to come and help in any way please contact me, I am open to all suggestions.

THE GARDEN

I am especially interested in connecting with people that have horticultural knowledge so that I can also improve ... more inside
