  • Description


    Hello!! I'm Françoise, I'm a teacher and I would love to welcome a Workawayer to help me in the house and outside in the garden. I'm living in the south west of France in a beautiful and peaceful place called le Gers. I'm living in the countryside and have a big garden that need some maintenance!! . It s a cool job 😉There is a lot of work in the house if it's raining: painting etc...
    I also have a dog and some chicken! I really want to host someone not only because I need some help, but mostly because I want a cultural exchange! I have 3 children who are now young adults :Emmanuel 25 is musician he lives in Condom at 10 kms from the house, Perrine 23 is sometimes at home and sometimes she travells. Martial is 18 and he is studying at Toulouse.
    During the weekend, you are free and you can visit Bordeaux, Toulouse . You can go to the sea, to the Pyrénées ,.

    Please contact us we are waiting for you!!

    We are surrounded by countryside, and fields. However, every weekends you are free and you can visit,. If you wish you could also go to the Pyrénées that are amazing mountains about two hours by car from the house . My son is a musician, therefore we could attend his concerts during the weekends as well. Basically, the week ( from monday to friday) will be quite calm and dedicated to work, but the weekends will be able to moove and to show you around and have a lot of fun :)
