  • Description


    I bought a huge house a year ago, and I am working on different project at the same time :
    I m renovating 2 flats in the house, handling a lot of outside work (gardening, but also taking care of the trees, cutting some, feeding the chooks, taking care of the bees ... ), and I started a brewery with a friend and also a small village bar, open once a week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I m living in a small mountain village, where there are more cows than inhabitant ! If you want to discover a rural town, the mountains, etc...
    From my place, it's really easy to go hike, bike, climbing, sit around the river or a lake...
    Beside that, Chambery, the closest city, is 20min far, and have a lot of cultural stuff to discover.

  • Help


    I need help on about anything you can do ! :)
    In the renovating area : electricity, plumbing, wood buiulding, concrete, ...
    In the hosting area : make a new and really nice place for the people I host
    In the cultural area : we've created an association in order to organize concert and show... come out and play !
    For the bar and the brewery, you can't really help here because it's a business, but you certainly can try our products :D

    Right now, you'll have your own room with a 2 persons bed, and share the rest of the house with me (kitchen, bathroom, etc.)
    I m planning on buying a caravan or a small cabin in order to have a better accomodation for my guests. (one of the job will be to renovate this if it needs ;) )
