I actually own 5 houses in the village so would be more than happy to host a build your own roof party

My other place is +/- 16 ha, so plenty of space for tents. Roll up, roll up, all welcome.


I'd love to do something like this, getting free from mundane life here would be the problem.

But you appear to be actively working on that.

I came out here on a long holiday, and look what happened to me ....

I had a nice sensible reasonably paid job and lived in a nice sensible house with a nice sensible car and nice sensible friends.

Now I spend allot of my time shifting rocks or covered in chicken shit, I haven't dyed my hair in about 4 years and I'm flat broke.

But it's far more fun

It's funny you should say that, as we've had several mad souls who've done exactly that. They're tougher than me!

That's a good idea. Hmmm. Lots of potential here.

How much attention do grapevines need, year-round?

One big prune in winter, maintenance pruning & training occassionally, and harvesting. Easy
