Hello and welcome to our site. Our house is a bed and breakfast so that means we are around pretty much through out the year. We have three areas of interest which i will tabulate below. What we offer in return is lodge and food. We can also offer lesson in English and Germany languages. And we offer our expirience in Art and Carpentrie production.

Nancy and Tass live in a small town called Lure in the east of France. Our house was built in 1787, yes, that's right, that long ago! It is still in good shape but can also be better with a bit of renovation and that is one of the
areas we need people that have the know how to come and stay with us. The house is part of the history of Lure and we have since established an association called culture and creativity. The house it self is artistic in every way.

With the association... more inside
