Welcome to Les Vignes Basses

Be the change you wish to see in the world

Change is a regular part of life here at Les Vignes Basses. Whether it be changes to the straw bale house, the permaculture plan, the off-grid house systems, how we grow food, or our mindset, change is always an adventure. We love to share these changes in our approach to life in the hope that more people will find the motivation for an adventurous lifestyle that is both rewarding and more at one with the world around us.

Happenings at Les Vignes Basses

As we and the land at Les Vignes Basses evolve, so does our way of engaging people. We plan to run courses, or perhaps retreats is a better word, to empower people to take back control of their own lives through, Yoga, meditation, fostering a sense of community and eco-building.

We were lucky enough to have our article documenting our build published in Permaculture Magazine. It was great to be able to tell the story of the straw bale house and share it with people all over the world.

Who are we?

We are a couple (triple with the cat) of dreamers striving for a more sustainable life in the French countryside.

We love the adventurous side of life, believing every new challenge is just a new adventure waiting to happen.

Living harmoniously with both nature and within ourselves is very important to us, as is sharing, hosting and meeting new people from around the globe.
