Exceptional: Currently looking for a German (mother tongues) boy to play with our children from 15/8 to 5/9.
We are a family with four children aged 10, 8, 6 and 2. My husband is a financial adviser and his office is at home. I used to work in publishing and now take care of the children.
We live in a small village in Normandy, in a 18th century chateau. The nearest city is Argentan which is 15km away. We are surrounded by green land, our own forest and lakes where we swim and fish. We have sheep and chicken as well as a big dog, an airdale. We try to do take care of a vegetable garden. We are a closely nit family and have all meals together, lunch and dinner. We are looking for somebody who is eager to become a family member.
