Oscar and I enjoy life on a hilltop situated in among untouched forests, streams, waterfalls and mountains. Half the time he's with his lovely mummy in the local village. Our very friendly goats, dog and our cats are all free and part of the family. We even have the neighbor's cows and a huge bull staying with us at present. We are looking for a happy person who would like to join us for a while and play with and help with my 9 year old son's reading and writing.
We live in a large medieval, very romantic and extremely drafty stone farmhouse with 4 open fireplaces, just like out of a medieval tale. We like to live life deciding each moment what we would like to do next.
He's not at school by the way. Very happy and open, truthful and bursting for fun, contact and laughter. I defend myself from him leaping on me by threatening to tickle him!
Be prepared to use the local hot springs to wash, a hitch hiking distance away, or to heat water on the fire and stand in a bowl. You have your own half of the house with its own kitchen, bedroom and sitting room.
We love creating art, enjoying visits, exchanging stories and ideas, dreams and experiences.
My personal passion involves a website to help us save our blue planet.
My dream visitor would be good at java script and be happy to help refine the website I have created in preparation of launching. If you know how to program in java script or create an application ... then please come quickly,
