  • Description


    Hello, we are a bilingual family (me Marco and my spouse Rebecca).

    I, Marco, have been working with furniture almost all my life (for now 30 years). I repair, sell and transport furniture. I also have 2 properties that I have to maintain but I simply do not have enough time to do everything. I love cooking for others and meeting new people so I thought I could give it a try.

    My spouse, Rebecca, is a student in University. She studies in management. She helps me sell my furniture.

    We both want to be able to live at our cottage house in Entrelacs in a few years. Out cottage house is big. The structure is solid but it hasn’t been maintained and we have to rebuild Some of the walls, take care of the roof and many other things.

    If you come to our cottage, you will be surounded with trees. There is also a river right next to us (2 minute walk). You’ll be able to learn about quebec’s culture and eat traditionnal quebecois food. We can also teach you french or english. And I think we are a great stepping stone to Montreal because we have lots of connections.
