  • Description

    Description

    We are a bilingual English / French family with a 12 yr old daughter and a 25 yr old son who is back doing a Masters. We live in a beautiful new wooden house in the countryside ( 5 km from Pau) with an astonishing view of the mountains.
    On our land we have chickens, fruit trees and a permaculture garden. We created it a year ago and it still needs some improvements.
    We have a cat and a dog.
    I work for an aeronautical company and my partner is a life coach.
    We love travelling and hosting people and discovering new cultures. We also practice yoga and meditation from time to time and enjoy walking, dancing and local Occitan music.
    Half of the family is vegetarian.
    We live 45 mins from the mountains where there are plenty of lovely walks.
    The sea at Biarritz is just over an hour away.
