    Hi! I'm Guylaine, a middle aged woman. I'm living alone in Ardèche , which is for me a fantastic place for beautiful and peaceful landscapes. My house has been built, 20 years ago, following ecolocical principles on an 2 hectars land. It is a really calm and sunny place. 3 km from the first village. We have a lot of fruit trees, flowers and vegetables.
    A part of the place is reserved for animals ( seven sheep, and two chickens).All around a lot of birds singing,and at last, I have a young and energic black labrador.
    I allready received workaways and it was a very good experience and I used to host peoples at home because I really enjoy cultural exchanges. I'm looking to improve my english spoken or learning italian language, so I will be pleased to discuss with you !

    There is lots of differents works to do around and inside the house. ( gardening , decorating, animals cares,) according to the seasons. This year I want to renovate the house and the garden.
    I prefer to receive couples or duets of friends.(because we mostly have double beds at home)

    Ardeche is a really touristical place . There is lots of things to do ( outdoors sports, canoe, bicycle, walks, visites, historical patrimony etc...) I love ardeche and It will be a pleasure for me to make you discover its best places!

    You will have your own bedroom and a shared bathroom. The house is full of life and confortable. I will make everything for you to feel at home.
    It is important to know that it is an ecological house, so we have ecoligical toilets ( no water). Our electricity comes from photovoltaic panel, so we have to be carefull with energy consumption. For everybody who want to understand how is functioning an ecological house, I will be happy to show you and explain.

    What else ...

    I think it's better if you are sensible to ecology, you like animals, and you share my wish to have exchange. We are mostly vegetarian and we cook 97% of vegetarian meals, but if you want to eat meat you can buy some for yourself and have acces to the kitchen.
