  • Description


    We are a family living in a small village Buxeuil, located in Champagne. Our family is multicultural, french, danish and spanish, we love meeting new people and doing activities with them. The village is unique thanks to the 20 houses of champagne and the 130 inhabitants. Our house is right by the river La Seine, which made the house an old hydraulic mill. We are renovating the house inside and we want to give the garden a new glow. The garden is less than 1ha composed of an area with chickens, geese, sheep, bees and a dog beside the animals we have 2 tennis-court, 2 medieval towers and a green-house.
