- Cautine, 19220 Saint-Privat, France
We are developing an eco hamlet and learning & cultural centre, on a fully restored, 17thcentury chateau estate in rural France. The property lies in the heart 13 hectares of parklands and forests, in the midst of quiet, deep-green nature, surrounded by hills & mountains, forests & lakes.
Twenty house plots will be available to rent for residence or holidays. Small, mobile, off-grid homes will be designed specifically for this property and can be either self-built or bought from local artisans. Houses will not be fixed and can be relocated or sold to the next resident if needed. Residents will also have access to communal spaces and facilities as well as their own large garden plot.
The chateau will provide visitor accommodation and a multi-functional workshop space for education and cultural activities. Residents will be able to offer their products and services to visitors as well as organise their own events and workshops for the public to generate income. Local exchange trading will permit trading both within and outside the property.
Gardens and land will be based on the principles of permaculture. A car share scheme and transport to and from the site will be restricted to ensure tranquility. Ultimately, we aim to create a co-owned eco hamlet on the land and build permanent homes.
