Please allow us to introduce ourselves

Hello! We are Nick & Jen and we moved to France in late 2021, bought a beautiful old farmhouse and gîtes, and have been lovingly restoring them since.

We both have a passion for traveling and love meeting new people and sharing travel stories. After staying in many beautiful AirBnBs around the world ourselves, we wanted to create our own special destination for guests to enjoy and make memories in.

Being vegan in France can sometimes be difficult and we want to share our knowledge and make it easier for vegan holidaymakers to enjoy the incredible cuisine that France has to offer.

We look forward to welcoming guests from all over the world. We’re trying our best to learn French and are having weekly lessons, so we look forward to practicing with French-speaking guests!
