  • Description


    After 20 years living abroad (Europe and Southeast Asia) I am back to my home town – a small village near Bordeaux – as I have some projects with my family house. I am currently cleaning the house, maintaining the two gardens as well as sorting out furnitures. Pease do not hesitate if you have questions.

    I am very open minded and cultures and languages interested person. And It will be a pleasure to share with you about the French way of living .

    I love music, arts, cinema, plants, gardening, travelling, and cooking and always open to learn new things. There is an atelier next to my family house, which I personally use for diverse handcrafts and it will be at the disposal of the workawayer.

    If you are enthusiastic, willing to help and share simple moments, you are very welcome !
