  • Description


    I am a 57 years old woman living in the forest, with few neighbors and lot of animals in a huge garden ! I share this place with my friend Claude who is living in the next house nearby mine, but she is not there all the year.
    I'm a primary school teacher working half time so I have time for the place maintenance.
    I like although reading, going to the movie, walking along the ocean or in the forest, painting and all manual activities, cooking, meeting friends...

    One important information : I only cook and eat vegetarian food.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Driving licence is really indispensable as the house is 3 km far from the closest village (Arengosse). If you have a car, it's more comfortable for you, if not, we always found a solution! I can provide you some bikes. Railway station in Morcenx (between Bordeaux and Bayonne) is 12 km far away from my home.
