Nous sommes une famille de francais installée en Nouvelle Zélande depuis 14 ans maintenant, nos passions: l'art, le verre, la nature, le jardin (biologique!), les voyages et la rencontre des autres et differentes cultures. Nous avons 2 petites filles de 11 et 9ans, Anouk et Janette, qui apprécient aussi l'accueil des voyageurs, et en particulier les enfants! I am originally from France. I have travelled the world following my passion for glass blowing and art in general and have settled in New Zealand 14 years ago, where I met my husband Jerome (French too!). We have two lovely girls called Anouk (11) and Janette (9) . We have a passion for travelling in adventurous ways and meeting people from different cultures. We love good real food straight from the garden grown organically and passionately by us. Jerome loves Nature and work with the Department of Conservation to rehabilitate the kiwi population in our native forest which comes right to the edge of Owhango. This is where we built our eco-house 3 years ago and have designed it to be unique, creative and welcoming.
