    We are located in southern France 120 kms from Toulouse on a 10.5 ha estate in Occitanie. We are a guest house in an old style manor on top of the hill. Our project is to develop a well being center in the middle of nature. It is a dream place for any handy man. Our points of interest include permaculture, sustainable energy and alternative healing.
    All-rounders welcome... My name is Ning, please get in touch for more information.
