  • Description


    We are a family of four, Pauline (32), Ludovic (30), Théo (2.5) and Lou (6 months) leaving in a great 1888 house typical from Toulouse's area.

    We like to chill and play with our kids in a forest close to our house, same on a lake shoreline, any peaceful and natural environment.
    I (Ludovic) have spent about a year abroad and enjoyed having cultural exchange with other travelers. At the moment, our projects take a lot of time and energy, therefore we are a bit sedentary. We would love to share time and experiences with travelers, to feel the energy and spirit from open-minded people, and to show you how amazing our region is !
    My english is a bit rusty but it remains more or less fluent.
    Pauline's english is a bit slower and basic but she understands it quite well.
    Our kids do not have any knowledge of it yet, but that would be amazing for them to discover it and hear a bit of it from time to time.

    Our project is to make some renovation work in our house.
    We would need the help of 2 people to do so, one staying in our house, the other staying at Pauline's mother's house.

    Our house is in Vacquiers, which is half way between Montauban and Toulouse about 30 minutes (car ride) from each. The area is nice and we'll know for hiking and good wines (not necessarily at the same time though considering the temperatures at summertime !)
    There is a bus to a subway station, the whole ride to Toulouse's town center takes about an hour)

    Pauline's mother's house is in Ramonville, which is southwest Toulouse's suburb . There is a shuttle next to the house in order to go to a subway station, the whole ride to town center is about 30 minutes.

    Vacquiers' whereabouts are nice for hiking, cycling, wine culture, nature. Toulouse's town center remains reachable within an hour of public transports, there you can find a beautiful city, full of history, chill on Garonne's sides, and regular stuff you can find in a town center (shopping, museums, etc...)

    Ramonville is close to Toulouse's town center, you have access to a lot of services (subway, grossery store, hairdressers, etc...)

    We plan to do some renovation work in our house, mostly stuff that is nicer to do when you can open windows all-day long.

    In order to spend as much time as possible on it, we need 2 types of helpers:

    One to help me (Ludovic) work in our house when I am not at work, and another helper to help Pauline with our kids (play with them, naps, meals, etc...)
    One helper will be hosted in our house (there will be 2 bed rooms free of work in order to sleep) and the other will be with Pauline, Théo and Lou in Pauline's mother's house as her mother is away for summer.

    Our project takes big energy to manage and we want to make it work while maintaining quality for both our kids and the renovation of our house !
    We know that the 2 profiles we are looking for are very different but we hope to find a fit at least for one.
    Our region is really beautiful, weather is great, there is a lot to see and we would be happy to help you discover it :)
