  • Description

    Description

    My husband and I live in a wonderful and quiet place - a "château" - in countryside near a small city (Poitiers) in the south west of France.

    We have one female cat called Marquise ; she is 6 years old and a young male called Pepino who is 1 year old !
    Both of them are very kind and like hug

    If you are interested in learning about organic gardening, this is the place for you.

    You will work with our wonderful team, Alexandre, Léa and Olivier. Alexandre (30 years old) is our care-taker and gardener, helped by Léa (26 years old) and Olivier. Because there's a lot to do outside, especially in spring and summer... and automn too !! :))

    We will be very pleased to welcome you to be part of our team at our place !!
