We are an open minded couple with a lovable young hooligan dog, living in the French countryside. We are very rural, in a small hamlet just outside of the village, there is no public transport, bars, shops etc. Our nightlife consists of star gazing or country walks in summer time and watching movies or playing board games in the winter. The house is a typical French stone cottage with heating in all rooms, we live as a group sharing bathrooms and eating together.

We live together in house as a group, we have 2 shower rooms and bedrooms are in house. In high summer if needed we also offer bedrooms in a large cotton tent. We make bread daily, and cake biscuits etc are normally on the table to help yourself to. We make English beer and normally offer beer or wine with the evening meal once the working hours are finished.

This was my first traveling experience ever and it was great. John and Rosslyn were very kind and warm during my whole stay. The environment is very cozy and quiet. It is a bit cut off from civilization which might be good to know for some in before hand. The working hours were barely reached and the work wasnt very tiresome, although that might be down to my stay taking place during late autumn.

All in all I enjoyed my stay a lot, being able to take a brake from my city life and getting recharged for my upcoming studies.

Thank you for your hospitality and keeping me well fed!
Learning to stone+mortar and brick+mortar was great and I hope I can use the skill again.

Our experience with John and Ross was amazing. We learned a lot from them, not only about sustainability, gardening, tools and all the things involved in their projects, but also from their life stories. They treated us incredibly well since the first moment we arrived. We definitely recommend this experience!

Thank you for your kind words. Keep in touch.



Nuestra experiencia con John & Ross fue increíble. Se nota que tienen experiencia siendo hosts y lo disfrutan realmente. Siempre hubo un trato amable y todo salió como lo acordado previamente. Las comidas son deliciosas y siempre tienen historias para contar! Vamos a extrañar jugar con Obi y Nookie, sus perros :)
