  • Description


    ---please contact the host in French---

    Originally from the Paris region and retired nurse, I live alone on the farm of my husband's family. I raise sheep, rabbits, multiple poultry including peacocks. I am helped by a person from the village who comes morning and evening.

    I opened in my second farm located 500 meters away, a guest house comprising on the ground floor a 3 bedroom apartment (6 beds) and in the attic a 6 bed dormitory.

    I speak French and Croatian but not at all English, I prefer to welcome French-speaking couples in order to be able to understand each other and work together. The stay on my farm can be 2 to 3 weeks maximum.

    I love traveling my adopted region that I will be happy to share.

    Originaire de la région Parisienne et retraitée infirmière, je vie seule dans la ferme de la famille de mon mari. J'y élève des moutons, des lapins, des volailles multiple dont des paons. Je suis aidée par une personne du village qui vient matin et soir.

    J'ai ouvert dans ma deuxième ferme située à 500 mètre, une maison d'hôte comprenant en rez-de chaussée un appartement de 3 chambres (6 lits) et dans les comble un dortoir de 6 lits.

    Je parle Français et Croate mais pas du tout anglais, Je préfère accueillir des couples Francophone afin de pouvoir se comprendre et travailler ensemble. Le séjour dans ma ferme peut être de 2 à 3 semaine maximum.

    J'aime sillonnée ma région d'adoption que je ferai découvrir avec plaisir.
