  • Description


    I have a charming castle in the countryside of south of France, one hour from Toulouse, Castres precisely.
    My castle has got a very nice view over and I intend to have a small farm with animals and welcome intellectual disabled people in my place for holidays so they could socialize, enjoy the nature and animals...
    I'm living with my daughter in the castle and have pets.
    I need to make painting, gardening and few things like this in my castle in order to achieve my project.
    I'll be happy to host workawayers as volunteers and offer them accomodation, food in exchange of help.
    I'm used to have people at home and foreigners as I had, long time ago, an american babysitter taking care of my children during few months and I like meeting new people, talking to them, helping them to get a nice experience and get to know the French culture and be able to visit the country...
