  • Accommodation


    We have our eldest son who has gone to study and we have his room available for you. It is a double bed. We share our meals together. During the week we get up early and have breakfast consisting of fruit and cereal to be ready by 9am. At noon we tend to have a picnic of bread and cheese. In the evening we share a hearty meal that we prepare together or take turns. Everyone has to help with the dishes and cleaning. We sometimes eat meat but not at every meal.

    Nous avons notre grand fils qui est parti etudier et nous disponibilisons sa chambre pour vous. C'est un lit double. Nous partageons nos repas ensemble. En semaine nous nous levons tôt et prendre le petit déjeuner compose de fruits et de céréales pour être prêts a 9h. Le midi nous avons tendance a piqueniquer de pain et de fromage. Le soir nous partageons un repas copieux que nous préparons ensemble ou a tour de rôle. Chacun doit aider a faire la vaisselle et le ménage. Nous mangeons parfois de la viande mais pas a chaque repas.
