  • Description


    We are a young family located in Waterville, country close to Sherbrooke, Quebec, close to the mountains and many lakes. Our two little boys (3 and 5 years old) and us like to live outdoor. Arnaud come from France and he emigrated in Canada in 2011. He's biologist, likes discover nature and sharing his passion. Anne-Julie (his wife) come from Montreal (Quebec). She travelled in Latin America and France. She also makes some woofing experiences. Both we decided to move to the countryside and renovate a century house. Since we move, we develop an ecological garden based on permaculture principles (vegetables, orchard) We have a dog (small) and a cat (very friendly !) Their's many outdoor activities in the area and also the city of Sherbrooke offert many places to discover.
    Please note that we can answer with a delay of few days depending on our planning : so it's better to plan each weeks before your dates. We prefer people for one to two weeks.
