    We have a beautiful, traditional old home on 7 acres of land surrounding by forest and moutains
    the magic thing is we live in the wild but only at 5 minutes (by car) from a little town called Anduze, (Gard) and 15 minutes from a biggest one called Alès. Nimes and Montpellier are in the south of us at 1 hour driving
    We enjoy people visiting from all over the world. This is a wonderful exchange and we appreciate helpers
    there are so many things to do outside like gardening , watering the garden and pot plants, split and stack the woods for the winter...well nothing complicated. the regular things to do in and outside a house.
    I also have too many books, and I would like to sell and get rid of. but it's very heavy
    There are many great walks in the area, we have a couple of bikes for use although its very hilly here. Great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views after a days of nd hzlwork. We are 1 hour from the Mediterranean, swimming possible in nearby in a beautiful river.
