Seven years ago I was a marketing student in Spain. Depressed and extremely unconfident about myself, an amazing and horrifying experience took place in my life, taking away from me everything. No more hope, no more dreams, no more sense, no more life.

And then, Life came in. With all its Magic, with all its Love.

I quit my studies, came to France, and travelled for a couple of years around Europe and Asia, following an inner force that guided me towards a more human and nature loving existence. People, permaculture, biointensive gardening, yoga, meditation, healthy food, music, all came into me with such an obvious and important place in what started to become a happy, simple, rich and meaningful path.

Two years ago I bought 1 hectare of magic land, and started to create a food forest. Since march 2017, I have 3 more hectares in which I'm setting a biointensive garden and a food forest combined with a miniature cob village specially created to connect children, but not o... more inside

I am hoping to be able to Host people who will appreciate a Spiritual & Rejuvenating place that has a Special Charm & ambience. The property comprises a picturesque converted farm building built of wood & stone nestling in extensive wooded grounds high on the valley hillside in the Pyrenees-Orientales with awesome views of the sacred Mount Canigou, the historic village of Eus & the surrounding mountain range. Added new photo of bedroom. Rather whited out by the sun, I'm afraid. Now in 2019 & much has been achieved but more needs to be done (Gaia does not rest). A couple of Helper cancellations means I can offer the Double Room for 1 or 2 visitors. I have a request to those who are not sincere in wanting to visit, please only get in touch if you really wish to help. I've just had to throw away a week's worth of food bought for people who changed their minds last minute. As I only have a small Pension I cannot afford to waste food like that.

As ever dead trees & weeds need clearing... more inside

Geraldine and Richard have owned and run a spiritual centre for health and healing on Mount Tamborine, Queensland Australia for nearly 20 years. We are in the process of building a similar centre in the Languedoc South of France where we need help with light building and gardening. Accommodation is indoors with showers and hot water. All meals are provided.
Where possible we use sustainable and `green` building techniques.
The use of random (uncut) stone and lime mortar has minimal
and even positive effects on the environment.
We ensure that the timber used is either sustainably grown or recycled.
Our aim is to create a space where groups can come to learn a range of creative, experiential and spiritual activities in a safe and peaceful environment.
We will welcome people of all nationalities and spiritual beliefs to share this facility.
Subjects which we hope to encourage will include, yoga,art,dance, astrology, meditation and healing.
We have now finished the building of... more inside
