OUR PROJECT = Rehabilitation of a old stone farmhouse in the forest/ working on our vegetable garden & creating water bassins

As a family we started to change our life style to a more responsible one ( re-use of materials, less waste, vegetarian food). We are learning continuously and like to share experiences and pass a message to our kids.

We are converting a small (abandoned for over 60 yrs) farmhouse into a sustainable living accommodation. We love to share our experience with people who would like to share their experiences with us in return.

Some of our kids are regularly wooffing in other parts of the world.


We live in the South of France between Provence and Ardèche area at the border of the "Cevennes" mountains/natural park area. A beautiful natural environment, but not isolated. We have two little goats, cats and chicken and a friendly dog called 'Noek'. There is lively family atmosphere with kids from 11 to 23 years old. Mixed culture (Dutch, French) a... more inside

Perrine, 55 years old, is a self-employed accountant and administrator.

Denis, 54 years old, gave up his career as collective kitchen fitter and repairer to renovate this former summer camp and turn it into a holiday resort which will also provide reception halls for rent.

We have been together for over twenty years and are rather good at DIY (we have already renovated a three floor house near Paris, where we used to live), but we need help to renovate this place, where we have been living for almost a year now, because it’s too big for just the two of us.

Located on the banks of the Aveyron river in Tarn and Garonne, about three kilometers from the village of Saint Antonin Noble Val (cittaslow labelled), our property is made of three separate buildings: an old mill, a very old building full of charm (approximately 600m2) and a more recent building (approximately 500m2). The land is about 18 acres wide and consists of garden, woodland and meadow. The area offers a wide var... more inside

About ourselves…
Previously , my husband used to be English and French teachers but we then moved to the Finance world. After much travelling, 6 years ago, my husband and I decided to settle down in the South of France with our children to run a property with 5 holiday Gites. We were both Exchange Students when we were young and therefore like to host and welcome people. My family is also in the hotel industry.
Further to managing our gites, I also work in the home decoration field and love to give second life to old furniture or objects that we would throw away…
We have 3 children. Our 2 eldest kids are at University and we have a 5 year-old boy. My husband is travelling much for his business, and even though my family is nearby, I would not mind a bit of extra help…

Where we live…
We live in a beautiful area located 5 km from the beaches, full of history, very touristic and very sunny.
To give you a better idea, we are 15 km from Perpignan and 30 km from the Spanish bo... more inside
