On February 28th 2006 we, Paul, Maya, Thessa and Rogier Banning are immigrated to France and started an organic farm. The farm with 45 Hectares of property is situated in the department Charente at about 1 km from the river “La Vienne”. It is situated in the middle of beautiful hills, trees fill the area and there is still peace and quietness of the country life. It’s an isolated setting but still at a manageable distance of characteristic French cities and villages.
The way we conduct our business is according to the organic agricultural principles. In other words, there will be no chemical and synthetic remedies for nutrition and fertilizing. We also don’t use pesticides or feed supplements to stimulate growth. The animals live in a natural environment as much as possible. The meadows are grazed extensively.
A part of the 300 years old “charantaise” farm is set up as a vacation home meant for your stay on the farm. In the living room, with the impressive fireplace, you can feel how life once must have been. For a detailed description of the “gite” (vacation home) click on the matching icon.
The area has many tourist sights and interesting cities. Cities as Limoge, Angouleme, Cognac and Poitiers are approximately one hour away by car. Typical French villages and cities, as Confolens are also in the area. In the direct area of the farm you will find many trails for biking and walking.

Our hospitality and the quiet area are guaranteed for a holiday where you will come to rest. The long, warm summer evenings on your terrace enjoying the peace and the stars in the sky. This is truly the life as God in France.
