  • Description


    We are a couple of artists, painter and ceramic artist. We are getting into permaculture and we are renovating our house which is already comfortable, and large. The bedroom is very comfortable. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat. In addition to accommodation and food, I offer an initiation to pottery. So there will be gardening and painting to do. We are looking for exchanges in a family and creative atmosphere. We live in the south Vendée (at the beginning of the Poitevin marsh), in the countryside, near La Rochelle.

    Nous sommes un couples d’artistes, peintre et céramiste d’art. Nous nous lançons dans la permaculture et nous rénovons notre maison qui est déjà confortable, et grande. La chambre est très confortable. Nous avons 2 chiens et 1 chat. En plus du logement et de la nourriture, je propose une initiation à la poterie. Il y aura donc du jardinage et des peintures à faire. Nous recherchons des échanges dans une ambiance familiale et créative. Nous vivons dans le sud Vendée (au début du marais poitevin), en campagne, près de La Rochelle.
