  • Description


    We are a small franco-italian family with two small kids who love to run barefoot in our forest garden. Our place is situated between mountains and sea, with only the whistle of the birds to wake up in the morning.

  • Help


    we are looking for a friendly traveler willing to share our daily life and help us finish to restore an ancient stone house situated next to our house. Our children would love to interact with a new person and learn from another culture. Anyone able to teach a music instrument would be particularly welcome.
    please note: as we are in a hurry to finish our construction work we are looking preferably for a man with some experience in this area and who would not be afraid with some physical work (my husband would never dare to ask a lady to handle a heavy hammer!).
    Also our hosting proposal is mainly for the 2 coming months as we don't know yet if we will be in france in automn.
