About Me


to find and offer much pleasure with CS


Retreat is for me a wonderful chance for expanding my universe and personnality ; to learn new things, to practice new activities, to make new friends. My family (three daugthers, three grandsons) is important to me. I try to be happy, to respect the humanity of everyone, to respect and enjoy nature and to remain in good health. I feel concerned about what is going in my country and in the world. Keep smiling and laughing!


It' so much important to have your own philosophy. It'll be THE work of all my life.
