    Hello lovely helpers!
    In 2018 we hosted about 10different workawayers and it was a great experience!
    2019 - we search again :) somebody who like to stay between 4-6 weeks or several months, conversational basic in german or french would be good.

    We are a young, little, German-French family in the French Alps!
    Our two girls are born in February2015 and November2016, so two little one's :) and then there is our tomcat, Jerry.
    We live in a house with a little garden around and there is a guestroom,
    which awaits a resident – we want to share our life with you!
    We like cultural exchange, other languages and new ideas…
    In the everyday life I need help with cleaning, cooking, hold a basical order and looking for the kids!
    There are different garden projects who wait, like to create some permacultural vegetable patches, to renovate a little hut and some other things like to cut the grass...
    We eat vegetarian food -except of the father who eat sometimes meat-. We prefere organic food.
    We cook very healthy, and creative - every dishes are unique, good recipes were noted :) - I love to make our own, bread, salted and sweet cookies, own müsli and icecream...
    I like to discover to make our own drugstore products like cleaning agent for the house, dishes and laundry...
    But I am absolutly beginner. Perhaps do you have some skills?
    We have any television, but we like music :) we have a piano and a guitar at home -Dad is playing - and I like to learn it.
    We sing and dance a lot.
    I have some years of Yoga experience, the girls love it too. Let's do it together!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    -You are very welcome in our lovely family we want you like you are and your ideas!
    -We eat biologically complete food and, except for the father, we are vegetarians.
    -We make a lot of things for eating ourself.
    -We grow some vegetables ourself, with using permacultural aspects - we like to learn more and teach what we know!
    -If you are interested in sewing, I can show you some basics and some little handicrafts too.
    -We pay attention to a benevolently education, so we are looking for the needs of the child, all on the basic of trust! We support/accompany and give a clear frame.
    -We live in a valley of the French Alps between Grenoble (30min), Chambéry (20min), Albertville (30min), Genève (Switzerland) & Torino (Italy) approximately 2hours+, and there are also only 3hours TGV to Paris (and we have family there).
    -We are a bilingual family with French and German – that is your chance to learn or to refresh two languages! (There are also possibilities to make language courses in Grenoble)
    -There is a lot to discover in the mountains around us. The nature is amazing and you also have the possibility of doing a lot of different sports like biking, hiking, skiing (we live 30 minutes away from the next ski station).

    Beside every nice projects - we would like to share with you - the most important is that i have a help in the everyday life.
    With cleaning, cooking, shaping the days with the girls, hold a basically order, gardening and more.
    Especially to have a creative, motivated and patient way with the children!
    That means:
    -eating together, sometimes giving someting to eat, changing nappies, bringing to the toilet, laughing together, consoling, marveling, playing creative - in the garden, in the nature, at home or going for a walk with the little bikes. We like to be outside in every weather!
    -Sometimes it means to change clothes, to wash the girls and/or to bring them to bed.
    -to bring or to pick them up from school.
    -to be there an evening when the girls are sleeping and the parents go out.
    -Often, to take care of the children means only to be there - to share time.
    -Playing means to discover, to listen, to sing, to dance, to tell stories, to be loud and to look inward -> to share what you like!
    -Playing means also: cooking together like to shell nuts, to peel potatoes... Or to hang out the laundry together
    Or to have a look for the plants in the garden... ->not for a big result, more for fun and to enjoy learning together.

    I work independent like dancetherapist, so my planning is changing often and I have clients irregularly, groups sometimes evening or weekend and I prepare also a lot of my work at home. My husband is working a lot in the home office too.
    So we make a plan with you for every moth and check every week together, that it works out for everybody! :)
