  • Description


    We live in the countryside nearby Vaison la Romaine and the Mont Ventoux. The gorgeous Toulourenc river 10 minutes drive away . The landscape around us with medieval villages is exceptional and perfect if you like biking or hiking. There are also many festivals, concerts an other cultural events in the summer. Avignon and Orange are 1 h drive away.
    We are an international family and do all speak English and French, I am German. We are three during the summer Thomas, Simon and me. Sometimes friends may come and stay a few days as well. We are all creative and openminded family. We love hiking, spend time at the river, do some yoga or just hang around. Thomas works on his several projects (stopmotion, youtube chanel...). Simon is mixing music. We also love to cook and have started a vegetable garden this year. We always have a project we are busy with...
    I am running a business in Aromatherapy and natural cosmetics that is next to our house and work most of the time.

    We have a huge house and garden where I need help with laundry, cooking, housecleaning, lawn, water plants.

    Normally you will have your own room and private bathroom but in the summer you might share your bathroom with us depending how many family members or friends will be around. But we always may have a nice room since we have 2 houses at the same place. Wifi connexion is no problem.
    We mainly eat organic food that we buy on the local market. We have delicious goat cheese and bread and great wines in our neighborhood. We often have a homemade brad and cakes. Since we are in the middle of the countryside us can use our bike or we will drive you where needed.
