I am a retired teacher, experienced in French language and culture classes to foreign students, and I love meeting people. As our children grew up and left home, we took the opportunity to renovate part of the house and start welcoming guests in our beautiful countryside. I am also trained as a tourist guide, and love literature, art, gardening, walking, cycling, and ... spoiling my grand-children. Paul, my partner, is fully supporting me.
