La Petite Fermette

Request more information or book(Gift vouchers can be used with this operator)
Since 2009 we (Anouk and René) have been living in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Here we are leading a holistic and almost self-sufficient life. We do as much as we can ourselves, with each other and with our environment. In this way, we can handle electricity, money, food, water, rest and space in a sustainable way.

La Petite Fermette is an expression of our way of living. Here we live in and with nature, we can grow our vegetables by permaculture, creating lovely vegetarian meals, giving holistic massages to keep our body, spirit and soul healthy and above all we can deeply enjoy all that life has got to offer.

This is why in the season of 2017 we will organise holistic living- doing- experiencing- working-weeks at la Petite Fermette in a small setting (min. 2 guests and max. 6 guests). Our guests will stay in our very comfortable and cosy ecological holiday home.
