  • Description


    I am naturally a friendly and open person, always happy to chat. The house is mainly a space to rest and recover so I like to let people make there own experience here, my door is always open but I want to give guests space to just be themselves so will generally give space. Always happy to share mediation and yoga practices, of which I have teaching qualification for.

    The house here is truely in the heart of the French countryside, there are amazing farmers markets, flea markets and scenery. For me the house is a chance to truely reconnect with nature and live in a calm environment. I practice mediation and yoga and welcome to share that practice with others.

    I'm staying in a beautiful old house and as its old it needs constant work - painting, building, tidying, organising and landscaping.
