  • Description

    Description

    Nous vous accueillons au sein de notre château, un lieu hors du temps. Cette propriété est dans notre famille depuis près de 200 ans. Nous habitons le château depuis 10 ans avec nos 4 enfants. Nous restaurons ce château petit à petit essayant de garder son atmosphère d'antan. Ce lieu est attachant pour tous ceux qui sont sensible à l'histoire et à l'architecture. Tous deux nous avons vécu à l'étranger et nous sommes heureux de partager notre passion.
    Nous recherchons actuellement quelqu'un pour faire de l'aide aux devoirs de nos 2 derniers enfants (6 et 9 ans).


    We welcome you to our home, a living memory of times gone by. The chateau is in our family for 200 years. We are living there with our 4 children for 10 years and restoring it step by step trying to keep this atmosphere from the past. This will be a unique experience for people sensitive of history and architecture. We both have living abord so we like exchange with foreign people.
