    We live in a big house in south of France, sort of a little castle, used as a B & B during summer.
    It is owned by the family for centuries (no ghosts Inside...! ).

    We need some help during summer, JUNE ESPECIALLY, for our B&B family organisation,

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We have had 3 years ago Inès , a young argentina girl who stayed one year with us ( with AFS organisation), then with Workaway,
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ we have had Frederique, coming from Québec from July to august 2015,
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ then Kriss in September coming from the States.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ In 2016 Cristina, coming from Italy stayed two months , and gave us a great boost and became as well a member of the family .
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ In 2017, Emilie from Denmark,
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Helen from U.K
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Rosa from Switzerland gave us great help, despite a very, very hot summer !
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Harry for around 15 days in 2018 (april)so as to give Michel a powerful help for the kitchen garden and lot of other things.
    *️️️️️️️️️️Sophie will be with us for may, then
    *️️️️️️️️️️Alanna in June
    *️️️️️️️️️️ then Sarah in July, Sophie came back in july
    *️️️️️️️️️️ and Steffi who had joined us in August !

    We still have E.mail with all of us.
    Our son spent two months in 2015 summer in U.K, with Workaway too.

    You will live in a real family, with from time to time childrens, grandchildreens, nieces , nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins coming tovisit us, and Grand Pa too, who lives in the domaine (but in a different flat).

    They are not altogether during meals, don't worry....
    Cat and dogs are friendly (hens too...) and they don't eat either with us...!

    We will provide you good and nice family coocking, in particular with vegetables coming from Michel's kitchen garden, and if you want to show us your own coocking recipes , no problems at all !

    If you want to improove or to learn a bit of french, you just need to want it, and to find time to work from time to time. We will help you, step by step.

    Michel speaks english, it could be usefull too... ( and also a bit of spanish).

    Already speaking french could be decisive and useful to understand quickly what Isabelle needs to help her.

    During summer month, a maiden will be better, as it's to help my wife with all the tasks belonging to our family B & B organisation ( cleaning, tiding, making beds and bathrooms, breakfasts...).

    We give wages ( we say "an enveloppe"), but not as much as the official french worker rate: it's not a question of amount, but as workaways do come to give an help, and as they receive free off charges all a family can provide, it does not justify a salary (it's our point of view...!).

    A nice family atmosphere you won't forget when time will come to come back home !

    We are near (2.5 km) a tiny little town (Pont-Saint-Esprit) and near the "Gorges de l'Ardèche". Also lot of nice places around to visit (Avignon, Nîmes, Orange, Vaison la romaine, le Mont Ventoux, la méditerrannée...etc).

    If you have an international driving licence, one of our cars could be availabe ( bicycle too...!!). A county agreement gives the possibility to buy bus ticket for only 1.5 € each, with which you may go and visit Avignon, Nîmes...etc, without paying too much . interesting, no ?!!
