  • Description


    I’m Louise and I live with my 7 year old daughter
    I am English but I have lived in France the last 20 years and my daughter was born here

    I guess you could say we live an 'earthy lifestyle' the theme is kinda 'just do it yourself!' always making things, games, cothes and food! into my experimental /alternative cooking .. we have chickens and a veg patch and love spending time in the garden.
    Free time is spent outside generally at the lake in summer (2mins from home) and we love Walking, running, fitness and going rock climbing, my daughter loves cycling and trampolining
    My main winter passion is skiing

    I work at home making clothes, I have a small sustainable fashion brand. I design and make everything myself in organic coton.. its alot of work ! but i love it!
    I have work-shops in my house (there are 2 other girls that come in and sew) with there own cool upcycling brand

    4 years ago I brought a big old house and have been slowly renovating it!
    I love painting and interior design
    I have upcycled pretty much everything in the house and renovated all the furniture and soft furnishings..
    Its a labour of love ..

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We speak mainly English at home but school and socializing is in french so a bi-lingual house
    I love cooking and baking often dairy or gluten free
    I am always making something, so lots to pick up on be it sewing, painting or renovating furniture!
    we go out biking, running, rollerskating and rock climbing and at the moment lots of lake action! So stand up paddle boarding .. whoever is staying is welcome to come along!

    The garden jobs would be strimming , clearing up, trimming the hedges and weeding
    sorting out our vegtable patch
    possibly making some garden steps for easier access on a steep bank
    some help organising the garage and tools.
    In the house painting a few doors and door frames
    helping me with some building work (knocking down a wall)
    plumbing in a sink
    helping me move doors or furniture

    and.. entertaining my daughter by playing with her, trampoinging, teaching or sharing a passion for a muscal instrument (we have a piano)
    And I love the idea of speaking another language !

    I understand that not one person can do all of this! but some would be FAB!
