  • Beschreibung


    Hi! We are a family with 3 kids (aged 6, 9 and 10), we live in the French countryside, in Burgundy, in a beautiful setting surrounded by nature, hills and fields! We are vegetarian and we try to live in a sustainable way respecting the environment as much as we can. We have many hobbies going from music, gardening, cooking, travelling, jogging and yoga.

    We have just moved to France from the tropics into a big house with 2 hectares of land and we are developing an eco-project with a permaculture approach, encompassing a vegetable garden, an orchard, bee hives, a poultry house and some animals - we have at the moment 3 goats and 2 Shetland ponies. Jerome works for an environmental foundation and I (Eleonora) am a free lance evaluator for development aid projects. There is always a lot of work to do in the garden and with kids, and we would be grateful to get some help!

  • Arbeit


    We look for a trustworthy person who would like to help us mainly with our eco-project (gardening, general mainteinance, animal care (optional)) and with the kids (language classes, homework, etc). Some help in the house (some daily cleaning and/or cooking) would also be very welcome, but all this will be discussed on a case by case basis, according to the profile and the wishes of the person. We propose accommodation and meals with us in exchange of 5 hours of work/day during the week (Monday to Friday). We look for someone who feels comfortable with kids, who is not afraid to work hard (gardening can be tough!), and who is respectful of the rules and who likes to take the initiative. We welcome in particular English, Italian or Spanish native speakers so that they could teach one of these languages to the kids.

    Was noch ...

    We live in the countryside, but we are 15 minutes by car from 2 cities of around 20.000 inhabitants. Very close to our place there is a "green path" that goes along a canal, where it is possible to run, walk and ride a bike without crossing any car. The area is very nice and has very authentic old towns and romanic churches to visit. The wine disctrict is not far and offers many possibilities to visit very renowned wine cellars.
