    Description

    Our site was recently selected by the patrimoine foundation because of its architecture and the history of its owner who contributed to France Libre. The site also includes 4 small houses in the middle of the rainforest. Mr Stéphane BERN made us the great honor to come to our house during this selection.
    The aim is to make it a place of visit and stay. It’s a sustainable family project because our children are involved in the project and will take over management after us. For the consequent work, we get help from local artisans.

    Le but est d'en faire un lieu de visite et de séjour.
