  • Description

    Description

    We are presently renovating a 16th century monastery in the French countryside (Marnay-sur-Seine artist-oriented village, 1h train travel from Paris).
    The project is destinated for personal use as well as partial use for an artist residency.

    We are French family with German and Portuguese origins, with 2 kids (2 and 5 year-old boys).
    During the helpers mission our very kind Germano-russian au-pair boy will also be present.
    We enjoy good food, strolling through flea markets and French art de vivre.
