  • Description


    Hi, I am Leon 24 years old, half French, half German. After finishing my apprenticeship in carpentry in Germany, I came back to rebuild this beautiful place I grew up. It's an old cheese dairy with a water wheel powered by the river that runs through the property. We´ll be doing renovating projects for private non-profit purposes.
