    Description

    Hello, we are a family of four. We have two boys, 12 and 10 years old. We live on a farm in the middle of France, two hours by car under Paris. We have 140 dairy cows, two dogs and a few cats, geese and one goat Caramel. We also have a little "gîte" on the farm which in summertime is very often rented.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    It depends on if we have family visiting, or guests, but you always have at least a private room for yourself.

    Sometimes you can be asked to sleep in a caravane, who is placed near the house and otherwise you can dispose of a little house, we often rent. But meals can always be taken with the family!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Bourges has a long tradition of art and history. Apart from the stunning cathedral, other sites of importance include the 15th-century Palace of Jacques Cœur and a sixty-five-hectare district of half-timbered houses and fine town-houses. Paris is only two hours away from our village. There is a lot of woods around, you can hike, fish, cycle and lots of things in a calm environment.
