Celine was born in France, but her new life began with a solo trip around the world when she was 22. She loves to travel and you’ll always find her doing something active, like yoga, sports, or cartwheels in the sand. She gets inspired by diverse and talented people who seek to be transformed on their travels. In Florianopolis, you will have a Community Leader like Celine to support you, and a dedicated City Team who will be there to help out on the ground.
Your new home for the month is a charming lake town with island vibes.You’ll be living right on the lagoon in the Lagoa da Conceição Town, in fully furnished shared apartments.

Your neighborhood by the lake has it all.
