    We are a family of six who are Dutch and Canadian.

  • Additional info
  • We presently live in the village of Pezenas, who's claim to fame is that the playwright, Moliere, lived here for a few years. The village is quaint and boasts two theatres as well as a cinema and several large supermarkets. Walks through the vineyards are minutes away and the weather is sunny and moderate most of the year. Beaches are a 20 minute car ride away and bus service is available to the nearby larger cities of Beziers or Montpellier.
    Working on the new Maison de la Plume you would be interacting with English, Dutch and French people who live and work in the community. You would also be contributing to the well being of the local community in that the completion of this project will most certainly result in an increase of tourist activity in the village.
