La Ville es Gaudin

Learning experience and contact with nature, language exchange connection with earth energies and development of personal magnetism. For city/town dwellers this could be a complete new vision on life and how the world works.

Martin & Vanessa,  are 64 & 61 years old respectively . Have no formal education having left school 15 & 16- years old.  Whilst they are not academics, they have a lifetime of experience in a whole host of different aspects of life.   Martin has never been a company employee for more than 6 months in his 49 year career choosing to either find or create his own work . Vanessa was employed as a data processor for the first 9 years of her career & since has not been employed outside of the family .   Having moved to rural Brittany in 1990 to a derelict house with no money, 2 small children & unable to speak more than a few words of French, with the attitude if you want to do something you can, it just requires effort & determination. Their 3 children 1 having been born in France are now adults & have left home.   For the last 9 years we  have been making a low energy small holding of 3 acres where we have large permaculture gardens for fruits & vegetables having rebuilt much of the depleted soil, sheep for wool & meat, as well as Goats, Chickens & of course a couple of dogs .   We can offer good home cooked food although we are not really set up for vegan diets, accommodation as yet, not so good, but perfectly reasonable (tents or living in own vehicle could be possible). Along with a whole host of transferable practical skills, which can be invaluable for anyone who wants to live extremely frugally or on the edge of society; Most of these skills are self taught or have been learned on the job.   Martin is now fluent in French is able to get by with Spanish, but believes that everyone can communicate with each other regardless of nationality, as long as you make the right effort & with a bit of creativity & want to understand . A very down to earth straight forward non pretentious  person who looks upon himself as a life apprentice. And can offer from experience to show you ; Most aspects of building, with new & reclaiming materials, as well as using what is around naturally, keeping animals as well as butchery, basic mechanics, operating digger & dumper safely, how to strip, clean & safely use shotguns. On a more esoteric level, para magnetic gardening, Dowsing, Geobiology, creating sacred high vibrational spaces etc. Generally living on your own initiative with a low budget.   Vanessa is proficient in French & very creative, a firm believer in natural health, & can offer from experience ; how to create garments & a whole array of other goods. From different materials, reclaimed or new. How to process wool straight from the sheep up through to knitting delightful warm clothing, or weaving all wool cloth for creating woollen goods. Gardening skills & real home economics.   It would require an entire book to list all the skills & experience we have accumulated. We are both open minded and relatively easy going and have led a full life.  We believe that in order to learn something you have to do it & mistakes are part of the learning process.

I don't have words to describe this amazing experience. From learning how to use a screwdriver properly to understanding how energy influences us, it was an experience full of learning. Martin and Vanessa, I enjoyed every minute in your home. Martin is one of the wisest and most patient people I've ever met, with a great sense of humor. I'll really miss our tea conversations. Every meal Vanessa made was delicious (I loved the crumble). I'll keep the advice and lessons from this experience as they were incredibly enriching. Missing Paddy and Inca.
P.S I hope the light works

It was a great pleasure to contribute to Martin and Vanessa over the past two weeks! Martin is fun and patient, always in good spirits to do the tasks with us, which were easy to learn. On my last day, it wasn't part of the tasks, Vanessa kindly taught me how to use a Spinning Wheel, an activity she Masters- It was a good surprise to have this opportunity! They are such amazing couple and I learned a lot about preparing and cultivating the land, as well as learning about electromagnetism and the power of nature.

My time here was amazing. It was possible to be involved in various key activities on the farm, such as taking care of the animals and preparing the soil for planting and sowing. Martin really knows how to improve the land to make the most of it. He was always involved in the activities with us, teaching us, and he has all the necessary tools and equipment that we used in these activities. He also gave us a real workshop on energy and electromagnetism. Vanessa is a true chef, you will be fascinated with her dishes. I really recommend this experience! Thanks again Martin and Vanessa!

I had a lot of fun helping out Martin and Vanessa on the farm. We did a lot of gardening and did as many tasks around the farm and weather allowed. I also enjoyed exploring the area and running around the country side on my time off!
