  • Description


    Hi; my name is Sylvie. I live in the house where I grew up, in the french countryside near Toulouse, next to the fruit farm where my family still works. Since I was a small girl I have loved to learn languages, and this love took me travelling to many countries, where I discovered and fell in love with different cultures, and different ways of life. I speak English and Spanish and feel I'm a citizen of the world. After traveling for the last few years, I'm settled back in my family home where I currently live alone.
    I have a dream of making my home into a place that i can share with people who want to experience art, creativity, dance, peace, connection with themselves and a simple way of being, but i need help !
    The house is old and needs a nice "make over" so recently I have worked with some friends to decorate and renovate it, but i need more skills and help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I share my home with anyone who would like to help me, I live in a beautiful part of the countryside, close to traditional market towns (where we go to buy fresh products), and experience the french way of life.
    You would have your own room, and we would share the meals, I cook healthy, mostly vegetarian meals, and we would eat together in a relaxed and friendly environment.
    I have a dog and a cat who are very friendly and live with me in the house as part of the family.
    If you wanted to practise your french we could speak in french although I could speak English or spanish.
    I have many interests that include dance and art work but also i enjoy walking and visiting the local area, and friends all of which you would be welcome to join me in doing.

    What else ...

    There is not public transport, but i visit the local town a couple of times a week and you would be very welcome to join me. You can borrow my bicycle to go around and enjoy the countryside. The local village is within walking distance of the house and this has most shops, a supermarket and cafe bars, church.
    I live about an hour from Toulouse, but if you travel to there i can collect you at the motorway stop (blablacar) or if not other possibility at Toulouse airport or at the train station.
    You can have acces to internet any time in your bedroom "with cable". (No wifi in the house).
