The Maas wants to repopulate the department. So the Maas people organized a real seduction operation. A dozen families were selected. Goal : welcome city dwellers who want to settle in the countryside.

They came from the Paris region, the Yonne or the Moselle, and all aspire to change their lives. The families selected from 400 people were invited to spend a weekend on the Meuse. Your stay begins with a visit to some properties in Verdun in order to concretely project yourself into the city.It would be to find the green that I have been losing for a few years, having worked for a long time in the great East and having to stay in Ile-de-France for professional reasons.says a visitor.

For the children, the visit then continues to the educational farm woimbey (Meuse).We accompany them to put them in contact with the territory and we make them a family experience“, Christel Funresponsible for the public relations of the agency Meuse Attractif. Samira Chioukh-Chir longs to leave the stress of city life behind and to resume a farm on the Meuse.I quit in September when my kid came back to really look at opportunities.”She says.
