  • Description

    Description

    Hello, we are Georgina & Stephan, an international couple that spends the summers in our renovated casa located in the foothills of the beautiful Pyrenees, between Toulouse and Tarbes. We are of Mexican and German origin but have lived and worked for many years in the USA and England. Georgina is a multidisciplinary entrepreneur, nature lover, coaching clients and, her passion project: a line of gourmet spices. Stephan worked over 25 years in Investment banking, loves reading books and his new interests are nutrition and history. We enjoy traveling, reuniting with our adult children, family and friends as much as possible. We also travel with our 2 companions "Galán" (German shepherd -Labrador) rescued in USA and "Roco" (Golden Retriever - Border Collie) rescued in México, who, of course are also with us in France :).

    As the location is quite rural a means of transport might be helpful. But if you are lacking transport, we are more than happy to pick you up from the train station in Montréjeau or Saint Gaudens.
