Hello, my name is Annelies. Originally, I am from Belgium but living in France for 15 years now. I have two lovely boys, Nils and Iwan. They are 15 and 13 years old. Most of the time they are living with their dad on the farm, at only a few kilometers from where I live now because they are real "farmers" and like to work at the farm.
We live on the countryside in the middle of France ("la Sologne"). It is two hours by car (situated under Paris).
In february of this year I bought a lovely house with caracter and a soul. Previously it has been a hotel - restaurant, bar and a little, local grocery store. There is also a nice big garden around the house. So it would be lovely to have people around with "green fingers" and to develop a vegetable garden and a chicken house...
I would love to learn different technics for renovating old houses in an ecological way.
I am a very optimistic, open-minded and cheerful woman with plenty energy and I like to laugh so that is what I do most of the time!! :)
I also have a small caravane which I would love to transform in a "mobile ecological grocery store and sell local products without packaging in different villages nearby ...
There is a lot to do in and around the house... and there are different types of work to do... So if you feel like helping me out than I am sure we will find things out!
Just come and discover!

Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
Originaly from Belgium, my mothertongue is dutch. But I learned french, english and german at school. I am living in France for 15 years now. I love to learn other languages! It is very interesting to be able to understand people in their own language and to be able (or at least to try) to communicate together!!
You always have at least one private room for yourself. There is wifi connection.
Bourges has a long tradition of art and history. Apart from the stunning cathedral, other sites of importance include the 15th-century Palace of Jacques Cœur. There are a lot of castles you can visit in the area of the Loire and Paris is only two hours away from our village. There are a lot of forests and lakes so you can hike, fish, cycle and lots of other things in a calm environment.
