    Hey there!

    We're former workaway folks (both hosts and guests on other platforms too) with three little girls turning 5, 3 and 1 his year. So "been there, done that" and we'd like to be the hosts we once loved to have.

    We're looking to give you the unique chance to enjoy the ever sunny Hérault country of France. There are a zillion wonderful places waiting for you to discover!
    The seaside,
    the dynamic city of Montpellier with lots of art, culture and nightlife,
    Sète, the French version of Venice, a flourishing art town,
    Saint Guilhem le Désert, officially classified as one of the most beautiful towns in France, with a nearby cave Clamouse, full of amazing crystallizations, stalactites and stalagmites,
    Pézénas, a lovely town famous for its hall of fames, theatre and museums,
    Lake Salagou, surrounded by dark red earth,
    Aigues-Mortes with its pink salt marshes,
    -- all in less than an hour's reach.

    And of course all the sports fans will find their favorite activities or can learn new ones! Kite-surfing, kayaking in the gorges or at sea, paddling or SUP, cycling, skating, climbing, paragliding, diving, ULM over the sea...

    And if you love good food, you won't be disappointed either. Hey, after all we're talking French cuisine here, that is the alfa and omega of good eating. We can help you find the restaurant that suits your taste and budget. ;)

    What's the catch?

    Ok, you had it coming, there is a "but". You'll need to take your car. :(
    And this is why we can only take a COUPLE with a CAR. There's very limited town to town transportation, and in order to enjoy your stay, you need to be independent.

    This is why singles, we're sorry, but don't even bother asking. We'll politely repeat what has already been stated here. Being here all alone isn't fun and we won't be around most part of the day.

    We don't have internet or TV here, but there's an internet hotspot in the town center and we have a few DVDs and a projector.

    Sooo, let's see your side of the business, right? Well, you'll most likely be asked for occasional babysitting. And... er... that's it. You read that right, and just to make sure you really get that correctly, all three girls are at daycare on working days from 9 to 5. We'd need help mostly in the evenings, when we have an exhibition opening, performance or other activities going on. And yes, this most likely includes changing diapers. Boo-yah! :D

    What could go wrong then?

    Ok, we'd prefer sharing meals but it's also okay if you make yours. (You don't need to decide in advance, we'll see how it works out for both parties.) We have a dishwasher, don't worry about dishes either.

    We only have one bathroom upstairs, so that can be a clashing point. Only rule here's: kids first. Sorry.
    But in the summer it's sort of fun to have a shower outdoors. ;)
    Oh, but you'll have your private toilet downstairs, next to your room. There is also a sink, so basic hygiene like tooth or hair brushing can be taken care of in your private bathroom.

    About the room: it's facing northwest, so you can enjoy the sunset from the tiny backyard attached to the house. The room has a sofa bed for two and some furniture to avoid "living out of a backpack/trolley bag". ;)
    Since it's in the back of the house, it's conveniently separated, so that you can have your cozy little space.
    The only times we'd need to go in are when we do the laundry, because the laundry room opens from your room. Sorry again.
    But it means you can do your laundry whenever and how you prefer. :)

    One more thing: though we'd prefer that the common language be English (we also speak French and Hungarian), we're open to learn any other languages! So this is NOT an "only native English speakers" workaway. We're equally interested in all cultures and languages. Come and teach us some basics.

    So if this all feels fair to you, go ahead and write to us!

    So who are you guys?

    Peter's an artist and a super-devoted dad. He's actually working on his thesis and while you're reading this he is quite possibly gadgeting about, creating his next masterpiece.

    Eva Debra is a singer/dancer/performance artist, who's already had a certain peak point in her career but is not discouraged to reach her high again. Oh, mind you. Sometimes I practice at home. I mean singing. You've been warned!

    And the girls:

    Lilien Désirée, the eldest, is very sensitive and caring, loves drawing and all sorts of crafts.

    Lydia Szaffi, a charming little chatterbox, who loves going out. Her favorites are the swing and the slide.

    Liana Joy, the cutest baby you can picture (I have the right to be biased) whose character we are about to get to know better each day. For now I can already say she seems to be a very easygoing person, radiating kindness and peace. And she's the cutest baby you can picture...

    So why are we doing this?

    We could easily have this room rented, get our money and clean up after the guests leave.
    But generous hospitality goes back to WW2 in my family, and since we share these values, we'd like our kids to experience having people at ours. And of course I wouldn't ask someone who booked to pay and stay with us to babysit. :P

    If there are any gaps left or you have specific questions or needs, please let us know.

    Here's to harmonious coexistence! ;) Cheers!
