  • Description


    Hello everyone !
    We are a family of three, Christine, Daniel and our wonderful daughter Solie. We live in a village of south of France.
    We are very attentive at the ecological questions and we build and renovate with ecological construction.
    We love to welcome people on trips and share our culture and knowledges.
    We love and practice music, singing, dance (traditional, rock and salsa... ) also bike rides
    We like to go at the concerts, there are often groups from around the world here.
    We cook and eat mostly organic food and the meal together is a important moment to share together for us.
    In the begin of 2018, we were volunteers in UK, New Zealand, Canary Island and Iceland during a long trip in family, 6 months. It was a pleasant and amazing experience what we want to live now in other way at home with volunteers!
