    Hi,
    We are a french family. We live in the south of the country, two hours north of Toulouse in a small village called 'Le Grès Haut', near Najac a famous old village
    We are 4 in the family, with 2 children of 9 and 12 years: Lily and Abel.
    Laurence is an economics professor.
    Sylvain renovates an old house and looks after the garden and the orchard.
    We have just arrived from 3 years in La Paz, Bolivia.
    We try to live in an autonomous and ecological way as much as possible with house food and dry toilets.
    We have a cat and chickens.
    We have a very quiet life but there is a great social life around here and you can enjoy not only the countryside and its beauty but also some parties and friends around too
