    It’s a nice big old house where we’re living
    With a big garden full of orange trees, other fruits and some vegetables
    There’s also a nice yoga studio where I teach and practice with a yoga hammock and other nice toys to train with
    And we like to share it with our guests

    We need help for the Yoga studio and classes, baby sitting, dog sitting, housekeeping, gardening, driving my car and cooking. So bring you licence, it’s really important!! We have a nice little room where we can host two persons, but it’s a small room, I must admit, and we would like to have people for at least one month. Unfortunately I have no
    Wi-fi in the house...So if you’re looking for a nice place to travel while sharing a dynamic life with us
