We, Laurence et Laurent (48-49) live in a very old house in a very little ski resort. We have 4 children 24, 22, 20 years old and a baby born in october 2017.
We rent three flats during holidays. We have a permaculture garden during summer and get warm with solar panels and by burning wood in winter. We have some animals : donkey, sheep, ducks, chickens, rabbits. Our house is located in a little hamlet in the middle of the mountain. We practise hiking, ski touring, climbing, mountain bike, ski, snowshoes...
We own an old house to repair with a forest all around where we cut wood for heating our house during cold season.
Laurence work at the tourist office and Laurent have is own company in electricity, soft energies and he is a technology teacher.

We need autonomous people to take care of the animals (ducks, rabits, chiken, donkeys...), to drive to go shoping with one of our cars (on mountains roads!)...
