    Calendar Info: Positions available from July 8th to July 21th !!

    Hello, (En français plus bas)
    I am 35yo, was travelling as a workawayer the last 2 years and I am now a host :)

    I have bought a house 5minutes south of Annecy lake and there is a lot of renovation work to do, mainly wall fixing and painting.
    If you have specific skills around plumbing, tiling, carpentry, masonry please contact me ASAP.

    The house is 5km from Annecy lake. 30minutes drive from Annecy (23km), 20min from Albertville, 45 minutes from La Clusaz and Beaufort
    The house is big (135m2) and include 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a small garden, a kitchen and 3 common area (dining room, lounge, office)

    We are on the main road to reach the start of the best spot in Annecy to do paragliding, canyoning and via ferrata so I guess we can organise some pick up. My neighbors run business around this activities.
    Cycling and mountain biking are incredible in the region (I am a cyclist myself, competitor). There is also infinite possibilities of hiking and trail running.

    Salut,
    J'ai 35ans, j'ai fait du workaway pendant les 2 dernières années et je suis maintenant Hote.
    J'ai acheté une maison à 5 minutes au sud du lac d'annecy et il y'a du boulot de renovation, principalement de la peinture !
    Si vous avez des compétences spécifiques en plomberie, carrelage, charpenterie, maconnerie contactez moi au plus tot!

    Je suis a 5km du lac d'Annecy. 30 minutes d'Annecy vieille ville (23km), 20minutes from Albertville, 45 minutes from La Clusaz and Beaufort.
    La maison fait 135m2 et contient 4 chambres, 2 salles de bains, 1 petit jardin, 1 cuisine et 3 espaces communs (salle a manger, salon, bureau)

    Je suis situé sur la route principale d'accès pour les spots de parapente, de canyoning et une via ferrata donc j'imagine qu'on peut organiser quelquechose si ca vous intéresse. Mes voisins sont des moniteurs dans ces différentes activités.
    La région est génial pour le cyclisme et le VTT (je suis moi meme cycliste compétiteur). Les possibilités sont aussi infini pour le trek, le trail / la course a pied.

    Mon profil workawayer est ici: You can find my workawayer profile here:

    I am a keen cyclist/mountain biker, trailer and skier. I can show you around the best place here to bike, run, trek or ski. We are at the entrance of the French Alps and there is a lot of mountains and nature to explore.
    You might know that Annecy lake is one of the most famous holiday place, there is lot of activities to do on the lake.
    I was also a workawayer for 2 years, I can share with you my experiences.

    The house is 5km from Annecy lake. Public transport is very limited, best would be to go around with a bike or your own vehicule. There is no shop around the house, everything is 5minutes driving (I will drive you if you need, you can also borrow my car for short drive)
