  • Hébergement


    There is a small self contained stone built house ...a bedsit really, self contained but the loo and shower are in a separate building beside your accommodation
    Couldn't care less about your politics, gender, inclinations, religion, eating habits, as long as you don't evangelise about it. Strictly no smoking inside anywhere on the property .Bicycles here, and a scooter if you are legal and at my discretion.. I will cook a full meal every evening, or you can share the cooking... and provide basic breakfast and lunch but I wont prepare it for you. 3/4 hours a day five days a week, You don't work whatever two days a week you choose but still board and lodging is provided. I appreciate our own space so you will not expect me to be host after 9 or so at night. I work here unless out on business maybe once a week.
