  • Description

    Description

    I'm a mother of 2 boys of 24 and 22, and a music teacher. We live in an old farmhouse in the French countryside, Northern France, in a beautiful green valley, at 10 km from Ardres, and 25 km from the Opal Coast and from the Eurotunnel, with a dog, 3 cats and some chickens to look after.
    We have a great flower garden, an orchard, pastures and many hedges.
    Also a little B&B activity with 2 rooms, so it can be quite busy here between May and September, but there's always time to relax, to walk and to discover the surroundings.
    Only solo travelers are considered.
