  • Description


    We are a family with 2 kids (11 and 13 years old). We live in the country in a 550 acre bush land. We have a few animals (ducks, chicken and 50 husky for dogsledding). In the winter time own a dogsledding business and in the summer, we have small vineyard and Orchard + accommodation.
    I am Sylvain (42). I study in wildlife management and forestery. I worked in the summer for the forest fighter departement and in the winter for our dogsledding business.
    Caroline (40) is a teacher for the kindergarden kids. She is a very good cook.
    We are a very welcoming family and easy to get along with.
