  • Description


    I am an art gallerist and art agent specialized in abstract painting, sculpture and photography (the last two being not abstract).
    I bought that 17 roomed house in Vabre eleven years ago and I am in the process of re-decorating it.
    The work is sometimes hard for my age ! that is why I offer an opportunity to Workaway travellers
    who can work with their hands.
    I am involved in art activities still : organizing art shows.
    The population of the village (800 people) is mixed : villagers and retired urban people as well as foreigners of various nationalities.

    The area is famous for its food and wine.
    There is a nice brand new swimming pool (using the river water) in the village - open in the summer.
