  • Description


    Hola! I live alone in the street frontier between Marseille and Allauch in the countryside; the land of the famous Marcel Pagnol. The view is just amazing, with the Allauch village and the Garlaban hill. I have a small house, and now a tiny house for my guest with a big garden. I have a cat, some chickens, and bees! I'm close to public transport - it's just a bus ride away from the nearest metro stop.

    I have done a lot of renovation in my house but there's still always something that needs doing (painting, general maintenance, gardening).
    I travel a lot and really like to discover new people and their culture. I'm an easy going and enthusiastic person with an open spirit. I love to share a meal, with good and healthy food - I'd like to think I'm a good cook! :)
    I like sport, climbing particularly; my area is great for this. I like art, music, photography, and cultural things in general.

    I'm a teacher so I have free time to spend with you, particularly in the holidays!
    I can teach you french cooking, we can go walking, or even visit some museums, or go to climb.

    My last job was to build a tiny house for my guest. It's very pratice because you're independant and it's also very confortable.
    Often time i host workers for 7 or 10 days max.
    Normaly i make a "to do list", and we check together how to do and what your prefer, if you've some special skill we can find maybe special things! After you can organise your time like you want, it's an exchange and i'm confident. In my mind, people come here not just for a couch (i'm not couch surfing;) but also for help me and exchange cultural and experience.
    I like honest people.
