  • Description


    We are an english-german family of six, with 4 children, 6, 4 and 2 year old twins. We are living on an 80 acre small holding in the beautiful countryside in southwest France, just 40 min outside lively and colourful Toulouse and within an hour of the Pyrenees. Our farm is slowly growing as we fence more land and currently has a few animals, a horse, sheep, cows, goats, chickens and a dog.
