We are interested in travel, other cultures, natural health, eco awareness, environmentalism, meeting new people, music, theatre, dance, IT. We love french inspired cottages, busy cities, tiny villages, and unique locations. As a travel writer, we visit many places, meet some amazing characters and get to experience some fantastic foods. We love creativity in all forms and are soon to build an underground stone studio on our property.

Other Comments

Non smoking house (required no smoking), times of availabilities can be flexible depending on notice and events. Would be lovely if you could do a little light gardening if here for lengthy stays, but not required. You are welcome to help yourself to fresh fruit and vegetables if growing when you are staying. Otherwise there is a local orchard 4 kms away where you can stock up. We travel a lot and are often away, we are therefore open to 2+ weeks overseas or perhaps weekend or mid week swaps within Melbourne or various locations around Australia.
