  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 (Me, my 13 year old twins and my 11 year old daughter). We live on a large land with horses, goats, chickens, ducks, quails, a large garden and a greenhouse.
    We live between Montreal and Quebec in a small village called St-Georges-de-Windsor, 35 minutes from Sherbrooke.
    We are always on the go, we are a creative family and we love to socialize and meet new people and learn from them. We have a lifestyle that tends towards self-sufficiency and we are zero waste.
    It will be a pleasure to welcome you with us and share beautiful moments!

    Nous sommes une famille de 4 (Moi, mes jumeaux de 13 ans et ma fille de 11 ans). Nous vivons sur une grande terre avec des chevaux, des chèvres, des poules, des canards, des cailles, un grand jardin et une serre.
    Nous vivons entre Montréal et Québec dans un petit village appelé St-Georges-de-Windsor, 35 minutes de Sherbrooke.
    Nous sommes toujours à l'extérieur, nous sommes une famille créative et nous adorons échanger et rencontrer de nouvelles personnes et apprendre d'eux. Nous avons un mode de vie qui tends vers l'autosuffisance et nous sommes zéro déchets.
    Ce sera un plaisir de vous accueillir avec nous et de partager de beaux moments!

    I also have a Tiny house available. You have access to the amenities of the house. There is the village 4 km away. You will be housed, fed, fully organic. We eat vegetarian most of the time. I cook gluten-free, dairy-free (sometimes goat cheese from a small organic farm), and I can also cook vegan. We have our eggs and soon a lot of vegetables and fruits. There are a lot of mountains around, beautiful hikes, biking trails and lots of nature!

Je cuisine sans-gluten, sans produits laitiers (parfois fromage de chèvre d'une petites ferme bio), et je peux aussi cuisiner vegan. Nous avons nos oeufs et bientôt beaucoup de légumes et de fruits.
