When two giants occupy a tiny cottage with eye-catching pink shutters, surrounded by vivacious founts of enchantment, there’s bound to be some enthralling stories behind.

On this digital reflection of our French lives I write about the bewildered wonders that befell us when we chose to embrace a less demanding yet more challenging lifestyle, mainly by downsizing and keeping our choices and their ensued options as rudimentary as possible, swapping various rat-races for an everyday poetry that harks back to our past as much as to an optimistic future.

On this digital reflection of our French lives I write about the bewildered wonders that befell us when we chose to embrace a less demanding yet more challenging lifestyle, mainly by downsizing and keeping our choices and their ensued options as rudimentary as possible, swapping various rat-races for an everyday poetry that harks back to our past as much as to an optimistic future.

Attempting to make our lives sustainable is more than a personal choice and has gradually lead to a multitude of decisions we have never even thought of before. 
On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.

Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.

The Ark of Taste is an international catalogue of endangered heritage foods which is maintained by the global Slow Food movement. 

The Ark of Taste is designed to preserve at-risk foods that are sustainably produced, unique in taste, and part of a distinct ecoregion.
