ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

Créer un lieu créative et imaginaire dans un environment rural. Chaqu'un son endroit a lui mais avec d'autre créateurs a proximité. Ici les animaux font parti de la famille.  

---


To create a place in a rural environment where makers from different backgrounds unite. Everyone his own place to stay and work but with other creators at walking distance. Not online, not half an hour drive away, not imaginary, but next door. Where animals are part of the family and kids can grow up in a friendly, inclusive and imaginary place.

PIANO


“I recorded several new pieces during my stay here. The combination of doing physical work on the land during the day and playing the piano in the evening helped me compose"

ORGANIZATION  & Tarifs

Organization

Les Sauges wants to be an easily accessible and self-organised space. We are a very simple organization and we like to keep it that way. This means, no regular meetings, no staff, hardly any rules or guidelines. If needed decisions are taken based on concensus where one voice equals one vote and no-one being really against the (to be) taken decision. If you have an idea or you want to do something that is alligned with the project it is almost always ok, as long as you can organise and execute it yourself. 

Tarifs

Prices are 15,- euro per night if you bring your own sleepingfacility like campervan or caravan and 20,- euro when you sleep in one of our accomodations and 350,- euro for one month. It does not include meals. If you are completely autonome and want to stay longer, you can rent a 'place' for 250,- per month. 


Les Sauges is a private initiative and is not sponsored or subsidised. 

Internal rules

To make it happen for all we work with only 2 basic rules:

1. Everything is allowed as long as it does not bother others (including the animals who live here). 

2. Leave no traces in the shared area's; clean behind you when you are not using it. If you have a dog it is your responsibility to get rid of the droppings.
