Dear friends of a communal lifestyle                                                                                                                                                                   

We are very happy that you are interested in our project "Collectif Mongrenier"!


Every week we receive emails from people who would like to get to know us or who are interested in how to live here. That's great and at the same time it means a lot of commitment for us to do justice to all the requests.

To find out whether and how you could realise your visions and wishes here on our Mongrenier site, please read our website very carefully.

There you will find who we are, something about our history and why we are looking for new people with their own projects. Our charter can also be found there. It forms the basis for all those who want to move forward together in this place. However, it is not set in stone for all time. Those who are new here will also help to reshape our principles to some extent.


So that we can get to know each other a little, we ask you to answer the following questions and send them back to us.

About yourself:

1. Name(s), address, age, phone and email, current place of residence and type of housing.

2. Do you already have community experience? In what form?

3. Do you have any training and/or in-depth knowledge in specific areas?

4. What project would you like to set up or pursue in Mongrenier?

5. What are your interests?

6) What is your family situation?

7. What motivates you to join us?

8. How do you plan to finance yourself in the short, medium and long term?

Living here currently costs 800 euros per month per adult (including all living expenses except health insurance). A financial contribution to the project of at least € 40,000 is due after one year.

9. What else is important for you to tell us?


Please send your answers to:


Thank you very much and see you soon! 

We look forward to getting to know you J

Collectif Mongrenier



Community is a daily school of life. It requires tolerance, commitment, reflectiveness, mindfulness and a lot of self-care. It is also important to us to deal maturely with the diversity of us humans and to deal constructively with conflicts.


“To hope means to try one's luck. It means betting on the future, on one's wishes and longings, on the possibility that an open heart and uncertainty are better than gloom and security. To hope is dangerous, and yet it is the opposite of anxiety and fear, because to live is to risk.”
