  • Description


    We are a elder german couple of 69 and 78 years that moved to south-west France (Tarn) 16 years ago together with our Icelandic ponies and westphalien warmblood mare. Our farm is located in a lovely hilly countryside 60 km east of Toulouse, near the town of Puylaurens, completely restored and modernised. We love country life, french language and culture and of course horses. The next town is 6km away.
