Fluffy hairballs and humans
Alex, a Belgian, an entrepreneur and comedian (he always has a good joke to tell), and a passionate lover of motorcycles, quads, jet skis, or anything with an engine, fell in love with the Lot region, its nature, and its trails during a family vacation.
Barbara, born in Cahors from a Lot-native father and a Belgian mother, fell in love at a young age with the charm of the dry stone walls, vineyards, cabécou cheese, sheep, chabrot (wine tradition), and so many other typical things from the Lot region.
For them, like for many, the lockdown and subsequent reopening, along with deep reflection on the meaning and quality of life, allowed Alex, Barbara, and their children Tim and Zoé to fulfil their “small” dream: to live more serenely, amidst nature, surrounded by animals, while maintaining human connection and warmth through hosting travellers.
In early July 2022, the entire family left Flanders, Belgium, to settle in a typical stone residence near the village of Fons in the Lot region.
