I am happy to welcome foreigners and will be happy to share my daily life around plants and maintaining our house .

We have a beautiful lake and wild nature around. i have 3 children and my husband who is a university teacher has 4. The youngest is 20 years old. Currently we are only two at home. the stay will be a mixture of gardening and general maintenance with a lot of cultural exchange by discussions and cooking in particular.

    What else ...

    People who will come should be sensitive to ecological approach in respect with the nature and accept to be quite far away form the town. The main part of the work we will do together will be outside so they should like to have the hands in the earth :) The closest town is Mirepoix, 20 min far away by car. We can fix to go there twice a week at least.
