    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a rural area in the south of France. Cooking is an importing aspect that we adopted from the french. Next to learning things on the farm we will take you to different social events with french and english speaking people . If you don't have a car you can use our bike. We can also bring or take you with our car.

    What else ...

    For your time off you will have to like the countryside. We have a dam and small waterfall. Work will be adapted to things to do in the area. For example, on a market day you can come with us interact with our friends and local people. You can also easily travel to Toulouse by train and have a city visit. Or you can go the other way and see the mountains or, for example, Lourdes.
