    Good Host
  • Description


    I live in Dordogne (SW of France), by a lake surrounded with Nature, in a beautiful countryside.
    My place is a big stone farm building converted into a house, a big music room equipped with a piano, a drum kit, guitars and percussions due to my former job, and a ceramic and wood sculpture workshop which corresponds now to my main activity.
    I also have a Bed and Breakfast running and study Art-therapy, which makes me a very busy woman !
    I like to host volunteers through this site because there is much to do and I have met so far wonderful people !
    Animals are around ; two cats, two ponies, an owl, swallows, frogs, and many others... Providing a good company, but none of them is very helpful for gardening and housework !
    I speak French, English, quite good Hebrew and understand a bit of German. I love languages and I'm opened to learn more.
    I am open-minded, outgoing and pretty much into personal growth and spirituality.

    What else ...

    The place stands 2 km away from a village with a train station, a few shops, bank, post, chemist, doctors... It is situated in the south of the "Parc regional naturel Périgord-Limousin".
    There are many beautiful sights to visit in this region as well as nice walks in Nature all around.
