  • Description


    I am working on the renovation of this house since February. I am 55 years old. I lived in Paris, Geneva, London and used to work in the event management. I also used to travel a lot but now focusing on this project. I am a mother but my boy is now at the university in Strasbourg.
    I wish to create a place where artists could organize art workshop but also language stay or fast workshop.
