We are only looking for people from March 2023 onwards
My husband is British and I am Belgian. We have 2 daughters of respectively 25 and 27 years old. The oldest is currently living at home. We have lived in Africa for more than 20 years before coming to France. We live in a big, beautiful old house in a very small village in the country side. We get by in French but we speak mainly English at home. We have 2 crazy but loving dogs, who love to socialise with visitors and 3 sweet cats. So people who come to France to learn French will not really benefit from staying with us. We both work as consultants and travel from time to time and have lots of experience with many different cultures. We enjoy cooking ( we are mainly vegetarian eating the occasional fish), walking, film and gardening. We are not far from Fontainebleau and other small towns and 1 hour from Paris with an easy train connection. We are happy for our workaway people to take full days off to go and visit Paris and other places and will facilitate getting to the station. We are also happy to lend our small car for people to get around.
We fully integrate workaway people in our daily lives, share experiences and meals ( we love it when workaway guests cook their favourite dishes) and when we have time take them on trips around our area. We are very flexible with working hours and we really want our workaway people to have a good time with us. We may also ask if workawayers can housesit for a few days during their stay as we have to go to Belgium from time to time.
