My husband is SAP consultant and I used to work in winetourism, receptions and events in a famous winery nearby, now in a wine trading company, and soon looking for a new job again !. We live very close to Bordeaux city , not far from the univerisity and close to the tramway, easily reached by bicycle. We've had wonderful workawayers at home, it's fun, helpful, interesting for everyone. We love it ! Come and enjoy some time with us !

    Hello Right now I'm looking for a reliable English-speaking person to take care of the kids this summer and practice English., sports or other hobbies with them... and have fun !
    We are offering room and catering and hopefully a good time in Bordeaux and around (accomodation in sea resort too). We want to share culture, food, fun, outdoor activities, but of course we can also have our own times separately.
    Only English-native speaker, easygoing, very reliable, willing and experienced car-driver (non automatic).
    We already had an amazing experience with Hannah for 3 months and Avery for 3 months too and really look forward to this experience again !

  • Accommodation


    We have one small furnished room for you on the 1st floor with the kids, bathroom is shared with the family.
    The room has a single bed, a wardrobe, wifi access. There is a garden, and the house is quite nice, especially in Spring and Summer. The area is quiet, close to the city and to nature and the vineyard at the same time. There is an Olympic swimming pool very close and everything you could need to have a great time in France ! It's called Villenave d'Ornon, it's a suburb South of Bordeaux.
