We would like to receive you as part of our vacation this summer (July 15 to August 15) in the family house (we will be between 7 and 10 people, divided between the main house, 2 cabins, also possibilities to pitch the tent ... .the estate covers 10ha), in the heart of the forest with a vegetable garden to pick seasonal vegetables, in Valbonne (Alpes-Maritimes), in the South East of France, then certainly in the mountains in the Alps. Meals can be taken with the family, under the lime tree, when you wish ... we are a family of musicians and take advantage of the holidays to explore this very beautiful region, (very pretty hilltop villages) to go to the sea, to attend concerts ..
