Booking for 3 People
If you have a group of 3 adults and wish to find accommodation, you need two rooms and you need to book through my other listing for booking both rooms in the house.
I do accommodate a family of 3 from time to time in this room, I would only consider this option if you are a family with a child, and you don't mind to share the same kingsize bed between the 3 of you. If the kid is old enough to have their own bed, you might not wish to do so, or you will find it crowded in the room.

Easy going, optimistic, spontaneous, creative and adventurous person. After former corporate life that propelled me to explore what life has to offer outside of what many people see as an attractive 'career path', I have been happily living an unconventional life experiencing it to the full.
I'm quite active, I love ocean swimming, riding my motorbike, go hiking, skating or long walks to enjoy the outdoors. I go dancing from time to time (tango or salsa) and I channel a fair bit of energy through my creative outlet in photography. I love to travel, even though I haven't been to nearly as many places as i wished to, but each and every travel experience brings immense joy, learning and friendship that I value.
I enjoy meeting people, I especially love spending time with those who are positive, easy going, adventurous, open minded and passionate in following their dreams.
Recently i have swam the English Channel (yes UK->FR) and am now working on my next challenge (and a few of them too :)
