We are a new co-housing and eco holiday project based in a 17th century chateau in France. We are inviting people to buy a share to create a self-sufficient community - self-sufficient in energy, food and water, ideas, education and development AND we aim to teach these skills and ideas to as many people as possible. We plan to self-build strawbale eco-homes on our 13 hectare property with beautiful communal areas and facilities within the chateau and barns. We are also creating a small independent alternative energy & technology centre, a media centre, an arts centre, a community school and a healing centre. You can come for an introductory session to find out more. Join us!
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
