About our home

Our house was built in 2003 and is located in a small village called Salt en Donzy. It is 136m2 large, with 4 bedrooms (2 with double beds ans two for children), 1 bathroom, a kitchen and a large living room with a fireplace. During the winter, we use to eat in the round table of our kitchen but often outside on the terrasse during the summer. At back yard, there are many trees, flowers and a garden where you can harvest your own tomatoes, peas, salad...and have many discussion with our neighbour Jean-Marc about gardening.
