  • Description

    Description

    Located in a beautiful spot just off the Bourgogne Route des Vins, 1km away from the touristic site called "Le Bout du Monde", a natural "end of the world" circus with its lovely waterfall. We bought the house in 2015, not expecting to do a huge amount of work, but within a year the roof was off and we`d undertaken a major project...
    We are a family of 5 (English man married to a French woman with 2 young boys, 6 and 4 years old, and a beagle) who love to travel and experience new cultures. We also like the challenge of building something and learning the new necessary skills. Trouble is we don't always have enough hands to do the work..!
    Since we bought this place the travelling is always to the same place, so it would be nice to have some like minded groups/individuals come and visit/help out and bring a bit of their country/life experience/culture with them....
