inspired by a book given to us by Lothar and written by Jean Giono, a famous Provencal writer, 'The Man Who Planted Trees', we want to give everyone the opportunity to become part of our effort to give back to nature and plant/adopt one of our olive trees, for a nominal one-time fee of € 20 per tree. If you wish you can pick your own olives in December! In total we will be planting 35 trees.

~ December 2013: olive picking in Provence
Come partake in this unique experience! We pick olives every day for almost 2 weeks in December so if you want to join us in the fun we will be happy to share this moment with you. No experience required as we pick by hand. We start after breakfast when the sun starts to warm the ground, around 10 a.m., then pick olives until lunch time. A warm soup and hot drinks will keep us warm so that we can pick more olives until the sun goes down, around 4 p.m. After that there is time to relax, and in the evening we serve a hearty meal, to re-energize our tired bones and muscles from a satisfying day outside. Reserve your room & space early: all meals included, you only pay for the room € 85 per night! 2012: with Linda & Josh from New York, U.S.A.
