I moved from Germany to France when I was 20 years old and I have been living here ever since. I have 4 children who are now grown up and out of the house. I live with Elio, my partner. We both enjoy living in a lovely natural and isolated place, where we like to have people visit us. We are both very independent, we renovated our house ourselves and we are self sufficient with our large organic vegetable garden. We also raise a few chickens, ducks and sheeps and we have 2 donkeys.
Our 7 grandkids love to spend their holydays in our little paradise.
