  • Description


    I and my husband and our 4 and 2 years old daughters live in the Magdelen Islands which is a beautiful archipelago in the middle of the gulf of st-Lawrence. We are a quiet and easy-going couple that enjoys outdoors and good food. This month we have to paint a couple of places around the house or we can happily accept babysitting offers. We have a little cottage by the water that we could offer it to our guest or we can host at our house!
