Family & Community

Working towards a sense of connectedness

Due to our busy work and school schedules, as well as the increasing use of technology, we often find it challenging to connect with each other on a deeper level. There always seems to be a never-ending list of tasks and distractions.

What if you spent time with your loved ones without the intrusion of technology, in close connection with nature? Let's bake our own bread above the fire, make pizza in our pizza oven, walk with goats or swim in the river.

Here we value community and love to bring people together. We are currently renovating a communual space to create a welcoming environment for shared meals. Come and see it for yourself!

What to find here

  • Family weeks - available all year round and customizes
  • Community activities such as Auberge Espagnol (communual BBQ)
