    Description

    We (Coby and Adrien) are a couple from Holland, living in the sunny south of France; We are active in organizing cultural events and meetings with members of the international community in our region (Occitany). Our house is an old watermill, built in 1690, of which the mill now is redecorated as a music room and exposition gallery.
    We live in a village near Carcassonne, the famous medieval city. In the nabourhood are the Mediterranean See and the mountains of the Pyrenees. Our department is called the Aude, also known as Little France, as we have all the great natural and cultural issues within our boundaries.
