Hello!! I'm Françoise, I'm a teacher and I would love to welcome a Workawayer in May and June. 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, specially during spring!! . It s a cool job that allows you to eat cherries whenever you want.. 😉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 nearly 25 is musician, Perrine 23 is sometimes at home and sometimes she travells. Martial lis living at home with me he is 17.
During the weekend, you are free and you can visit Bordeaux, Toulouse. You can go to the sea, to the Pyrénées ,.
