We are in our mid-forties co parenting our kids - with a wild nature loving 7 year old teacher and a two year old munchkin and would also be keen to meet other young travelling families too.
Sometimes we are super busy with people, sometimes pretty quiet,(in the winter) you will need to enjoy your own privacy especially most evenings as we have two young children to think about and go to bed early.
this place is great as everyone has their own space.

Thanks for reading and happy travels!
