Hi! We are Ambra, physiotherapist student and Pilates teacher, passionate about permaculture, and Alberic, archivist very curious about renovation in general... We bought a stone house from the end of the 19th-early 20th century that we have chose to renovate with sustainable and local materials.
For now, all the stones are hidden by a cement plaster that we have already started to remove from the inside. For the exterior, we will wait for sunny days to fully accomplish its rebirth :)
We live on site, five minutes from the center of Landiras (south Gironde), in a small locality near the forest. We will welcome you and accommodate you there with pleasure!

If you come visit us, here's what we will be doing, depending on te periods:
