Le Chant des Pierres

We arrived in our old farm in Dordogne near Sarlat (one of the most beautiful and famous French medieval towns) in 2018 with our 4 children and all our animals (a dog, a pig, cats, hens and ducks). We have decided to renovate the buildings in an environment and human friendly way so as to host seminars and retreats in relation with consciousness and holistic health approaches and practices. We also wish to slowly develop a permacultural vegetable garden to become self sufficient and ideally be able to provide the surroundings (but that would be on the long run!). We speak fluent English and are all very keen on welcoming international visitors to learn from their culture and share our own. If you like nature, family life, building, gardening and challenges of all sorts you can join us in this exciting adventure! We'll be really happy to welcome you. Since January 2020 we've welcomed over 30 volunteers and have had experiences with all of them. Their participation has made a tremendous difference for us and we are so gratuful to be getting this wonderful help!

We are 6 at home, plus all the animals and have a very busy life as we homeschool our children, renovate the buildings, learn growing vegetables and design the landscape. It's a lot of hard work and we'd be very greatful to have some help to move on better. If you are motivated, you like to work, you like nature and family life come and join us:-) We are not vegetarian, eventhough we eat little meat, but are used to welcoming vegetarian people so that is not a problem at all :-)! Please mind that we have two bedrooms and that there are two places per room so you might be sharing your room with someone else. I'm specifying this because I have just been told that our profile says the opposite and I don't know how to change that. So here is the info. Please note that WE DO NOT ASK FOR VACCINATION.

My experience was amazing from start to finish, the place is so beautiful. Paul and Ade and their family are some of the kindest persons I have ever met.
The activities are not difficult, you have enough time to rest and chill, the food is so delicious!
It's a great opportunity to learn new stuff, to improve your French and English.
I definitely recommend it if you are looking to get away from the big cities and if you like animals too.
I'm going to miss les enfants so much!
One of the best volunteering and experiences of my life.
Merci beaucoup pour tout :)
A bientôt ❤️

Adi and Paul are both very welcoming and kind souls. They will do anything to make your stay at their place the best. Adi cooking was abit different to what I’m used to but still amazing none the less. The work was good, made the day go faster there is always something to be done, but also hard work which I enjoyed. The kids are great and the dog always wants to eat ur food and have a snuggle. They are all very kind and I have nothing but good words for everyone!

My experience at Le Chant des pierres was crazy, an incredible experience that I would repeat without a doubt and I know that I will 100% visit them again. I made very good friends there, the atmosphere is wonderful. Work schedules are very respected and the work is not hard, it is tiring, but it is very good. I had to return a few days earlier than I thought due to personal problems in my city, but they understood perfectly. Highly recommended

This was the best experience that I have had while traveling. Highlights for me were the perfect work-life balance, the delicious meals, the stunning countryside, and most of all the feeling of belonging in the family and with the other volunteers. The work taught me new skills and some self-confidence, and their way of life taught me valuable lessons on how to live that I will keep for the rest of my life. This is a truly special place that left me better than when I arrived. It is a place of health, life, and growth.

Mi experiencia en le chant des pierres fue maravillosa, es una familia muy acogedora, siempre te preguntan si estás bien, compartes en los momentos de almuerzo y cena conversaciones divertidas e interesantes.
Aunque el trabajo a veces puede ser un poco duro, vale la pena estar rodeado de naturaleza y tranquilidad.

Me encantó que pudiéramos usar el carro los fines de semana para conocer pueblitos cercanos :)

Los extrañaremos a todos, y por supuesto también a Helios y a Constantan.
