Welcome in Pierrefitte, a domaine of 140 hectare in the Haut-Morvan,
a wonderful little place where the water still flows pure
and the silence is embellished by the sound of a hundred birds!

The Morvan (+- 550km from Brussels) is a Parc Naturel, that consists for more than 50% of forests.
There are sloping meadows, many lakes and old, small villages.
Because it is a Parc Naturel, there's no industry or large scale farming.
The weather is simular to ours: a degree colder in wintertime, a little warmer in the summer.
The amount of rain is a bit more than in Belgium but usually comes in concentrated showers,
so there's actually more sunshine :) also in winter!

Here, on this beautiful spot at the foot of Mount Beuvray,
there are about ten houses, barns and buildings (for ex. a cheesemakery, stone breadovens),
a large horse stable and a fairytale castle, amidst meadows, forests and small rivers.
Together they form hameau Pierrefitte!

Our goal is to turn this place into a flourishing eco-village.
 
 
After the purchase of the domaine, we will renovate the houses durable, energy efficiënt and partly with local materials.
Some barns will be turned into houses/living units, some studio's and assisted-living houses.
(All have the possibility of a permanent adress.)

Also, we want to look into the different possibilities of using durable energy and apply this,so we can be as self-sufficiënt as possible.
There will be a biological growgarden, there's a pond and water from our very own source.

The focus lies on a more natural way of living and working together,
with enough space for everyone en still a common character:
you renovate of reconstruct your own place, with the help of others,
you can start your own small activity (micro-entreprise) our continue your current operation.
Maintaining the domaine together, we share in the work of the garden of the living-kitchen,
where we prepare a daily healthy hot meal (noon of evening) for all the inhabitants.
Ofcourse will you share in the yields of the garden and what the animals give us (eggs, honey,...)
Also we would like to be of service to our immediate environment and integrate us into the local life.
To give you a better idea of the possibilities, check out the tab: eco-village project.
  
 
 We would love to provide (in time) a classroom and activities,
to have the possibility of home schooling instead of sending the children to a French school.
Home-schooling is known in the Morvan, with associations of young people in the vicinity (Luzy, Château-Chinon)
who gather weekly with their children for joint activities or letting them gain experiences.

The living together in Pierrfitte will come from a shared vision,
that along the way will refine and deepen itself, coming from the residents' council.
Absolute basic values we keep are the ones from the Manifest One Planet One People:
peace, harmony, respect, love, Mother Earth and the new reality.
(see the tab One Planet One People for more)
Taking responsability, being connected and gratefull, is a part of that. And passion: dare to live your dreams joyfully!
 
 
 
'Everyone contributes in his own way to the living together in our little village,
where we live and work together, connected and in harmony.
You take up your own place and are part of the great whole.'
 
We believe it is our intrinsic nature to live together in such a connected way,
close to nature, to the rhythm of the seasons.
 
                                                               Come and be welcome!
