  • Description


    We are a French family speaking very little English. We are 4 sometimes 6, from 4 different generations. We created a big welcoming house and we have still some little house work and landscape design/gardening so it would great to welcome you for a few days to a few weeks.
    We are nice and open-minded people with an ecological conscience. Our home is comfortable (with wifi, tv) a little dog, 9 hens that give us good eggs and you would have your own room. We live in the center of a little village situated in Charente with a bakery, grocery shop, kindergarten school, pharmacy, bar and post-office (12km from the closest train station and 30km from Angouleme, the biggest city in the area).
    We need people who have handy-man skills in exchange for lodging, food and cloths washing. We had the help of a friend to write this text, so it would be great if you have some notions of French to comunicate.

    Don't hesitate if you have any question
    Bonne journée
