    Description

    We are living in an old house in the country part next a big forest, which was in the medieval past some Duc de Magenta propriety’s ; we are a family with an handicap child GUILLAUME and two other sons, OLIVER who is an acteur, and MATHIEU who is an athletic-coach. We live in the country in Bourgogne next a very pretty little town AUTUN which as an antic gallo-roman and médieval part with a very beautifull and famous church. We are engaged in ecology developpement and ways of life, big natural garden, geothermy, solar energy etc... We are looking for volunteers who could look after Guillaume some time in the afternoon and help us part in the garden in sommer time, part in the housework into the house we rent just next our home or to custom some old furniture to sold them in our Brocante shop (antiquity) or to look atfer our sheeps in winter time. So here the life is quiet but full of diversity and friends.

But also about ecologic gardening and way of living ; or to restore old furniture by painting them to sold them for caritative association.
