    I am Ariane, the mother of Jolyanne (7 years), Karelle (6 years) and Laurent (3 years old). Our family (with daddy Steeve) lives in an old traditionnal house in the Magdalen Islands. Our islands are one of Canada's most beautiful places! It is cool in Summer and our Winters aren't that cold. It is a natural paradise if you like to hike, to explore, if you like nautical activities (kayak, kite surf, sailing, etc.) and of course, going to the beach! In winter, you can go out cross-country skiing, on snow shoes or even kiting on ice!

    We need help with child care, gardening, maintenance on our blueberry shrubs and planting strawberries, housework & repairs, beekeeping, chicken coop, etc. I also operate a soapshop from our home! I make fresh natural soaps from scratch as well as other skin loving products. I may need help in the soap shop and I always have extras to give to our guests.

    If you get along with kids and are willing to help us with our projects of the moment, our home is a great place for you!

    We can accept families in Summer if you are willing to camp as our home only has one guest room. (We have a big land with trees & woods to camp)

    The Magdalen Islands are beautifull and it's a unique place to visit with 300 km of white sand beaches! In our family we love to eat well, we rarely buy processed, so you will eat well.(If you also help with making meals) We can show you the best spots to visit around here and suggest great activities in all seasons! Please, look up where we are on google maps before sending us a request as traveling here can be pricy depending on the season. By plane, you can book via Air Canada or by ferry from Montreal or PEI via CTMA Transport.
    As we are a French speaking family, you could take the opportunity to learn a new language.
