My beautiful holiday and seminar center, in a quiet idyllic location in the countryside with many nice surprises, invites you to live here for a while together and work together.

There is a large self-catering vegetable garden, many fruit trees, bees, chickens, horses and donkeys and many birds; also two dear dogs and a few cats live here.
There are 5 cottages, a pizzeria, a pyramid for events, but also a pool and a sauna.

The people who spend time with us have their own house at their disposal, such as cooking and eating together at least once a day. We play, discussing and have fun and a good time together.

There is a lot of work to be done all year round, the care of the vegetable garden, the provision of holidays and seminars, but also wood making mowing; there are also with smaller construction works.
The next major construction project is the construction of a hobbit house made of clay and straw.

I would be very happy to be your host.
All the best,
Philippe.

Hi folks, we need a pair of hands, or two pairs to help us move things and clean up around the house, do a bit of outdoor work, tidying up as we prepare to vacate, due to selling. Ideally suited to a young man or two or a couple who are strong. The work may be sporadic, intensive for a day or two then not a lot for a while. You may be left in charge while Alain goes away to work. This job would suit someone or persons needing somewhere to stay over the autumn months. We are within easy reach of the Pyrenees, ski-fields, rambling around and outdoor pursuits as well as within easy reach of Toulouse (about 40km). Trains from our local village, about 3km away. Vehicle would be handy but not necessary. Responsible, capable and independent persons ideally suited to this stay. You may have to fend for yourselves somewhat, but plenty of food will be available. Please apply asap if you are interested. Thank you - Lynda and Alain.

Hello everyone !

Gaspard and I (and Louve, our dog) live in a small house in the beautiful "Vallée de la Loire". We try to be as self sufficient as possible ; we still have some improvement to make but we're getting there ! We have a special interest in fruit trees, permaculture experiments, alternative energies...
We need help with building up our yurt again, dry stone walling, gardening and general construction work. We ask for 3-4 hours help per day(in the morning), and for people eager to share ideas and good food with us!
We are also musicians(Gaspard plays the saxophone, I sing and I am a comedian too) and I love drawing, writting, dancing and photography.
Gaspard also has great interest in anything that has to do with freedom of information and computers (Linux...)
The area is quite nice and full of wildlife (birds of prey, wild boars, roe deers, few snakes, wild flowers...).
We use dry toilets and shower outside as soon as the weather allows it.
We love cooking and... more inside
