  • Description


    Hi everyone !
    We offer a cozy room on our lovely tropical island, our house has 4 bedrooms and showers, a swimming pool and a little garden.
    If you like beaches, lagoon, you will be at the right place. Located near Saint Gilles, we are in the west coast where white sand beaches are and you can walk to one at 5min walking.
    We have 2 disable daughters (22 and 19 years old), Elisa and Juliette are sweet and need to met people around the world. Juliette (19) is able to read and interact so if you feel good with her, you can help by teaching her how to take the bus or to speak english.
    We are looking for someone to paint the woods, in fact leaving near the beach involves regular manutention work.
    In our garden, we try to have some fruits and vegetables with permaculture concepts.

    The Reunion history is very interesting and the landscape are amazing, an intensive island... Did you ever heard about a island where racism is not common and sharing religions is our main everyday?
    we are French, but we lived here since 25 years, so we’ll help your to discover our country. Moreover if you are interested in permaculture and phytoremediation, you will learn how we tried to build our house following these principles.
    Our English is approximate but we'll love to improve it...
