    Descripción

    We are a franco-american family living in the Alps, our two children are aged 11 and 17. Lori works from home as a translator, and used to travel for her work before COVID. Our home is located in a beautiful area in the southern Alps at 1000m elevation, near lac de Castillon. Our property borders two rivers, the Verdon and the Ivoire. We have a huge yard and there are many tourism opportunities nearby, although we are somewhat isolated with no neighbors or amenities within a 6km radius. It is easy to get here by train from Nice or Digne les Bains (our home overlooks the tourist train station which is currently closed for works, as of May 2021, the trains are replaced by buses, the nearest bus stop is 6 km from the house).

    We have two guest rooms in the main house, and a small indepedent studio.

    Things to do in the immediate area include hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, cycling. There are great opportunities for day/weekend trips to places like Digne les Bains, Annot, Entrevaux, Puget-Theniers, Nice... travelling on the small tourist train that departs from the station right by the house (4 stops/day). The nearest village is 6 km away, population approx 550. The lake is about 8 km away, we are also not far from Castellane.

    We speak mostly French at home, with a little English here and there. If you want to improve your French, you will definitely have the opportunity to do so!

    Couples (children welcome) or single women preferred.

    We have two routers, very reliable wifi connection all through the house. No 3G or 4G mobile data available outdoors nor in the house (or very spotty!)
