Hi ! I'm Marie, a single woman with independent adult children, living alone in a beautiful small village in the Beaujolais region near Lyon, France.
I like to meet people from all over the world, sharing knowledge, customs and culture.
I was a volunteer worker in NZ for 6 months in 2015/16, which was a great experience, now I would like to host volunteers!
In exchange for food and accommodation I need some help around my home: painting, decorating, renovating and gardening (cutting hedges, mowing the lawn and weeding).
I was a furniture upholsterer and decorator, I did recycle, up-cycle and restore old furniture.
I am currently working 4 days a week for an association in the social field, which means less time to share with volunteers...
II am looking for responsible volunteers who can work independently when I am away. f you enjoy DIY you're welcome to help.
I can accomodate one person or a couple (gay friendly) in their own bedroom with private bathroom.
Shared main meals using mostly organic food (vegan if required).
It's also important for me to take time to relax and talk! These convivial moments help to make the most of the exchange!
I'm looking for easy going, open minded, hard working people, of all ages!
I ask for 4/5 hours of help per week day, week ends off, staying for at least one week.
If you want to visit around the region, there is so much to see and discover, (beautiful villages, winery's, music festivals, great walking tracks, local events), there are some local buses and I can arrange to pick you up if required.
Help in the house
I could teach you how to restore furniture and you can share any skills you may have.
As well I am able to help you with learning french and about french culture, history and manners.
Skills in the woodworking (cabinet maker) , building and and painting are welcome.
