    Violette, Clément and little Tao (born in April), we bought a huge farm with a bit of land and we are renovating one of the house while we are living in an other house of the farm. It's a huge work but it's slowly going on ! Clément is working in the city nearby, Albi, and Violette take care of Tao for the moment ! Violette speaks a fluent english and Clément understand a lot.

  • Accommodation


    Our house is old and we can offer a room but it's decrepit (the wall are breaking down a little bit...!), in winter it might be a bit cold... it will be a shared bathroom also.

    I usually love cooking and would prepare everything but with my baby it's kind of hard at the moment, but it's changing every week so we will see! I will probably ask for little help to prepare diner, to cut vegetables for example ! We will eat together but if you feel like having different timetables we can talk about it ;)
