An "organic farmer" Canada told me "it's cozy at home, a comfortable bed, and good food" ...
Another traveler described the house as a "cabinet of curiosities".
I love welcoming people!
Another traveler told me: " when we open his house, we open his heart ". It is the case with me, I believe. And it's mutual! I open my house to the lovers of history and literature, birds and travel, of poetry and photography, painting and architecture, textures and music, nature and peace, and in all those who are not inspectors of the cleanliness even if the housework is daily made, we are in the Camargue of Mistral made by dusts and by sands (and the cleanliness is so subjective).
The house is old. The room is comfortable. The bed with firm mattress. The kitchen is small, and the bathroom too (shower and toilet). There is a garden.
No shops... We are at 10 minutes from the Saintes Maries de la Mer...
