A Rustic, Organic Mountain Paradise

(version francaise un peu plus bas!)

My partner and I (who is from England, I am from France), live in the french Pyrennes (Sentein, 30 km away from Saint Girons), with our boy, Zephyr (3 years old).

The place is beautifull, very quiet, with lot of wild lifes around (the dears are living around our house!) and far from the city. There s lots of nice walks to do in the area, and breathtaking scenery.

This summer project: make a new dry toilet outside and a new wood shelter. These are priority jobs, then there are lots of smaller jobs that are always going on. The garden always needs loving attention, there is wood to be cut, chopped and collected, and since we live directly on the mountainside there is always terrassing to make some flat lands, and general landscaping projects. We work with organic materials in a sustainable way.

Even for people who want to come and help with cooking, including transformation of foods (conserves, lac... more inside

Hello!


We are a little family, living in south France, in Gers: Pascal, Mélanie and Annah wich is 9 years old and homeschooled and Plume almost 2 years.
We try to have a non violent parenting.

We also have some animals: hens, 2 cats, a mule and a shetland, birds in the trees, roe deer and wild boar in fields around!...

We both like to do a lot of things by ourselves, and we try to tend towards self-sufficient.
We live in a typical old farm and we refurbish little by little, at our tempo and on nature pace.

We have a lot of projects for the lands like gardenning with permaculture,creating a forest garden, building a beehive, using solar energy and our good sense!

For the renovation of our house we use earth, lime, wood, pigments and mostly some recycling, many organic and natural product and our hands for doing the work...

We love cooking, especially vegetables and wild plants, flowers, mushrooms. We eat sometimes meat but not much, so if you are vegetarian ther... more inside

We are american, from San Francisco and New Orleans, living in France for over 10 years. We have an old farm property in the Loire Valley, 10 minutes from Chinon, with a main house and two renovated barns. The larger barn is a vacation rental, and the smaller barn is mixed use, rental or friends, workers, etc. We need help with some small projects, with landscaping, and in the vegetable garden. We have a large veggie garden, many fruit and nut trees as well.

Before the season starts in April there is much work to be done cleaning up, tending to the garden, etc. Same at the end of the season. In mid-summer, there`s weeding and landscaping to keep up with, when the smaller barn is not otherwise occupied.

DURING WINTER WE REALLY NEED help in marketing our vacation rental, since the sites we have used for years have switched their format to compete with AirBnb. We need help with marketing on social media, our own website, etc., which we have never done.

Hello, I'm traveling by inland river barge through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. The barge is an original Dutch built peniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend.

There is a simple separate -little- room (see photo..)for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitation, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave.

The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking??? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

Kind regards,

William

We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare permaculture smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.Helen also runs a local cafe,shop,bar.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property

Learning is a journey into the unknown!

We will always try our best to let people work on the projects that interest them the most-
either at the smallholding or the renovation in the village, or a mixture of the two.

At the smallholding we are currently:
Wacking thistles
Cutting bracken for mulch
Stacking fire wood
Pond weeding
Reroofing a roundhouse
Dry stone walling.

At the bar renovation:
Dry walling

Hello, we are a belgian couple (Kim, 34 and Oliver, 45) who started a sustainable living project 6 years ago on a small old farm with a ciderorchard and a lovely little stream. We also have a daughter Lila (5 years old).

A big permaculture garden is giving us a lot of delicious fruit and veggies, two adorable donkeys are maintaining the grass and the chickens give us eggs.

By now we’ve accumulated a zoo consisting of one dog, two donkeys, three cats, four guinea pigs , lots of chickens and an uncertain amount of goldfish!

While Oliver is a sensitive soul, who loves gardening, the art of tai chi and talking about the world behind the scenes, Kim is a passionate mommy, healer and scientist who also enjoys the beauty of nature and arts, right now she's working long hours at the coast. Lila is a homeschooled little miss, who's enjoying living close to nature.

As we try to live in style and close to nature, you can expect dry toilets and sleeping in a lovely yurt or caravan.... more inside
