We're a Franco-Canadian couple, with three bilingual children 10, 7, and 2 and a sweet cat.
Our home is a family château built in the 1400s and passed from father-to-son since the 1600s. There is lots of history here and you will be walking in the footsteps of the illustrious ancestors!
We love music, movies (movie nights are always fun moments in our house), and good food and good wine (which we produce in our vineyard).
The Loire Valley is a peaceful and beautiful part of France, not too far from Paris. We relish in the intense blue and sunny skies of the summer and our house can feel like a peaceful haven, far from the outside world.

The Loire Valley is meant to have the purest accent in France. It's a great place to discover history and the amazing French way of life!
Organising and cleaning skills are useful at the moment, as we're renovating several rooms in the château and also about to harvest our grapes for the season.
DIY skills are always useful.
We'd also love to welcome anyone with good SEO, social media, film editing or photography skills.
Those with cooking skills and a passion for food and wine are always welcome.
And in the summer, childcare experience is always handy!
This host offers a language exchange
Our children understand and speak German. My husband can also speak Spanish and a little Italian. The language of the house is English and French.
We have a comfortable two bedroom guest house located in one of the buildings beside the château.
