  • Description


    Hi ! We are a friendly couple from Nantes. We both traveled around and sometimes quite far from here. We had also spent a year in the Northern countries with a lot of workaway adventures. After a long search, we finally found a perfect spot to build our house. Well, it's actually an old farm with 2 hectares of land ! So we would be glad to meet you and build our bioclimatic house !
