  • Description


    We are a French/German couple with two young daughters and a 5-month old little baby boy living an international life between France and Italy and communicating in four different languages on a daily basis. Our 5- and 3-year olds already speak 3 languages fluently.

    We live in an historic mansion in Mulhouse (close to Basel, Freiburg, Zurich) with large garden where you have your own room and bathroom.

    We are looking for someone to help us with renovating, work in the garden and around the house (strong arms). We are ideally looking for a strong male from any national background for a couple of weeks, or a couple.

    We are sure you will love the area, the people and our house. Ideally, you are between 20-70 years old and enjoy French city life, good and healthy food, and are culturally and historically interested in the region of Alsace and bordering Switzerland and Germany. You will easily find friends among the very open and friendly locals.

    We are looking for a healthy, energetic individual who would like to stay with us for a few weeks. We have enough space to accommodate you. You will have your own independent bedroom and bathroom, and, of course, high speed internet. You will share the kitchen, the large garden and several terraces with us. We will provide all meals (homemade French, German and Italian cooking).

    We would like you to help us with renovating our hours about 5 hours a day or help us garding our three little children.

    On your weekends, you can go explore all of France, hiking in the Vosges, visiting medieaval Colmar or international Strasbourg, and of course bordering Switzerland (Basel, Zurich, Bern, etc.) and Germany (Freiburg).
