Eco Chateau


A co-housing and eco holiday project based in a 17th-century chateau in France. We are inviting people to join us 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.

The chateau, set on the edge of a small hamlet, is a 17th-century ‘maison forte’, full of wonderful original furniture, history and comforts. It sleeps 20 people on a self-catering basis.

We are building affordable 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.

Options include volunteering with free board & lodging, purchasing a co-housing share, or taking a holiday.
