  • Description


    We are a Dutch family of five, living in an old mill in the Limousin, France. We have a large vegetable garden and would like to expand it to other edible crops. In the meantime, we are working on restoring the mill to generate energy with the flowing water. Our land of more than 5 hectares is beautifully situated on the river Tardes, it is green, quiet and hilly. Feel very welcome to join our family, join us for dinner at our long table and join the yoga class in the morning. You have your own double room with shower and toilet.
