  • Description


    My name is Florence. I live in a peaceful place close to Nantes, surrounded by fields and horses. My son just went to Cambodia with a bamboo’s bike that he built it himself, and my daughter travels in Asia. I have a simple life and I like to share.
    It will be a pleasure to share some moments with you and introduce you to our culture, our landscape and our activities.
    I am garden's animator and for Créa'naturel association, we offer workshops to learn how to make natural products Bio.
    The garden is in full transformation toward a permaculture design. We cultivate an organic growing and the meals are essentially vegetarian.
    To get to know, I want to welcome you at least 15 days.
    And don't worry, we also can pick you up at Nantes train station if necessary.
