We decided to leave the rat race and live in the most beautiful region we could find, Osséja, France! We rent room(s) and occasionally our home. This room has an American King bed (193x202cm), SW facing balcony with views, desk/chair and good wifi. We enjoy having guests stay with us. We are perfectly bilingual French/English. We also speak Spanish (basic level). We are learning Catalan :-) Welcome to all!
Our home and family are very welcoming! The shared living space includes the main floor areas: kitchen, dining/living area with fireplace, reading/games area. Our mezzanine space includes office area, huge couch for watching Netflix and fun play area with toys galore. Our style is eclectic with furnishings and art from Indonesia, Europe and North America.
Our Guest have access to their room and all the common spaces including the lovely garden, fire-pit and trampoline! We also have quite a few cosy areas in the house such as the fireplace living area and the mezzanine for relaxing and watching movies!
Interaction with guests
We live in the house and will be available to warmly welcome you, give you information about the region called "Cerdagne". You are free to have a self-serve breakfast (cereal and milk, etc) should you desire. Please note that we have a school-aged child in the home that goes to sleep at around 8 PM and us soon after! You are free to enjoy all the common spaces, make a fire, watch a movie etc.
