  • Descrição


    Hello, I'm Caroline, i'm a natural dyer living with one big dog and 3 cats . I live in an old stone house with a lot a space. The house is located in a small village 30 km away from Bordeaux, we do have all the commodities availlable by foot (bakery, grocery shop, doctor, library). If you like contryside life you'll love it here, and you wont be isolated. You can go to Bordeaux by bus (1 hour). I won't come and pick you up, you have to be able to come to my doostep on your own if you want to stay here. The best for me is to start with a week long stay and see if we want to add a few extra days or weeks.

    While trying to renovate the house there is some painting, cleaning, and gardening to do all year long. You have to be OK with animals and especially big dog, mine is very nice, but also quite a bully.

    I've been to Japan, Canada, USA, England and Senegal... I live a quiet life dedicated to crafts (I'm also a knitter and knitting designer), doing workshop and hosting students is also part of my work and things you can help me achieve.

    If you're handy and would like to work while learning natural dyeing I can show you, and might need help with sewing and dyeing fabrics. Life here is quiet and following seasons (winter by the fire and spring / summer / autumn in the garden). I would love to trade some good travel stories against some good homemade meals and local wines.

  • Acomodação


    You will have you own room with wifi. Shared bathroom, kitchen and living room. Be aware that Ilive with 3 cats and a big dog, all animals are very friendly and close to us. They live inside the house.

    I eat mostly fresh and local homemade food. I eat cheese, bread, meat and all kind of vegies and fruits. If you have a vegan or vegeratian diet it's ok with me, I would love to learn and try some of the food you can cook from time to time. Hopefully we can work something out together, but sometimes you'll have to feed yourself on what we provide that suits your diet, or buy your own food if it's really something specific.
