Hello! We are a young family who loves quiet, nature, sun, swimming, nice things, good books, good beds, good meals, fire, stars, nights under the stars, treasure hunts, sand castles, naps in the hamac, jumping on the trampoline, La Provence, parties and friends… I'm 43 years old and I have two sons (15 and 10 years old). We left Paris for the South of France 9 years ago so that they can grow up in the nature. I travelled a lot in my life and I'm always happy to meet new people. I speak German and English fluently. See you soon! Bonjour! Nous sommes une petite famille qui aime le calme, la nature, le soleil, les baignades, les jolies choses, les bons livres, les bons lits, les bons petits plats, les feux de cheminée, les étoiles, les nuits à la belle étoile, les chasses au trésor, les châteaux de sable, les siestes dans le hamac, les sauts dans le trampoline, la Provence, la fête et les amis… J'ai 45 ans et j'ai deux fils de 17 et 12 ans. Nous avons quitté Paris pour le Sud de la France il y a 10 ans afin qu'ils puissent grandir dans la nature. J'ai beaucoup voyagé dans ma vie et je suis toujours heureuse de rencontrer des nouvelles personnes. Je parle couramment l'Anglais et l'Allemand. A bientôt!
