  • Description


    We are a local familly leaving in the deep countryside in the middle of nature looking for help in gardening, animals care and maintenance of our house.
    The familly is compose of my eldery (but autonomous) parents, my sister and me. I'm a travel lover (one world tour and many long stays mainly in South America) and a expert user of Couchsurfing.
    We live in a big estate (more than 10 hectares) in the city of Morne-à-L'eau, in the center of Grande-Terre. Its a quiet, and peacefull area, full of vegetation. We try to live in harmony with the nature around us and in self-sufficiency with our production. Indeed we have some cattle and a little garden that we try to develop. We also have cats and dogs.
    In the house, you will have your own room and we expect you to share the meals with us.

    As our city is central of Grand-Terre, it is a good place to access the nice whitesand beaches of Guadeloupe. Renting a car can be a good option for flexibility, but if not there's a bus stop at 10mn walk from the house. We can give you all the good tips to have a great experience of Guadeloupe.
    The house go to sleep generally aound 10/11 PM but you are free to hang out (maybe you can join to me sometimes) as far as you respect the quietness when you come back.
