About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying the simple life with our 2 little girls, Jeanne and Lélia, born in 2011 and 2013, respectively.
Living in a farm, sharing with long-term roomates, organizing live music events monthly.

ABOUT ME

We are a French couple with 2 little girls. Since 2010, we have settled in an old farm in Britanny (40 kms from Rennes, few kilometers from the "famous" forest of Brocéliande). Before, we spent 3 years in Australia. Good old times ! Sylvain is now a lecturer in environmental engineering and Aurore works in a school, assisting disable kids.

Our main interests are music for Sylvain (double-bass and electric bass player in jazz, funk, reggae bands) and photography for Aurore.

Our place used to be a farm with several buildings. One of them is our house, and one has become a concert hall and others workshops. "Roomates" came along the process with various skills (sculpture, masonry ...) and 7 other people are sharing the outdoors.

Animal lovers with cats, dogs, sheep ...

PHILOSOPHY

Work for leaving.
Keep the oceans blue and live green.
Share and hospitality.

Anywhere we've been, only good people welcomed us. Hope we can do the same towards the backpackers in France.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We had so many good experiences since we're hosting people in our tiny flat in Rennes.
Hope we'll be able to keep doing it in our beautiful farm.
