We are a french family living in the Ardennes, near Belgium.
We live here with our youngest son Edouard 14, we have 2 older children, living away from home.
At the moment, we are working on an old farm that need to be partly rebuild. So skills in building are welcome, working on walls, (Faire des joins, appliquer de l'enduit). Also if you have abilities with plumbing.
You could also help us with gardening. We have a big garden, where everything grows too fast... We also have a vegetable garden that is new this year. We want to experiment permaculture. If you are found of gardening, if you have skills with growing plants it's perfect!
We also have a gîte, and Iµ would be happy to have help in cleaning, making it nice for tourits and
if you can help me run the house (cleaning, ironing, cooking etc...) it would be great!
We enjoy evening talking with a glass of wine and we will be very happy to make you visit our beautifull Ardennes!
But you must know that we are in a small village, with no bus to go to town... (but we can drive you sometimes!)
We have had different experiences with workaway and we met really nice people, some are now very good friends!
We are very busy, but friendly and we love to take time off with people joining us. We are hard workers,but we also enjoy to relax ; )
If you like countryside, you should be very happy with us!
Sophie and Vincent.

Help in the house
We love to drive travelers to discover our beautifull place of France, we'll take you swimming in rivers, walking in the woods, discovering nice places, both in France and Belgium, wich is very close from home. We can also help you learning french.
We are really looking for somebody from an english speaking country, spanish could also be ok because Edouard is learning spanish since september and it could be great for him to practice it ,but then we would need you to speak french...
Most of the time, we will be working with you, to do the job together, is more pleasant.
Help mostly needed in gardening and building, but you are welcome if you can help me with our house.
Accomodation: We offer a nice bedroom with a big bed and private bathroom. And of course we offer you to share our family life.
