  • Description

    Description

    We are Alice and Lital, a couple of women with two boys (5 and 11) and a future baby expected for end of March 2020.

    We live in a big house in Normandy (100km from Paris, 150km from the sea) with a big garden, with fruits and vegetables. We also have a chicken house we share with 2 families from the neighbourhood.
    We both work mainly from home, and enjoy everyday life in the countryside.

    We are fond of nature, travelling, art and good food (especially Alice who is passionate about food as reflected in her blog ) and we enjoy welcoming visitors and friends to share our lifestyle.

    We try to develop an ecological consciousness to our kids, to limit waste, to eat local and organic, and to avoid the supermarket as much as possible...!

    We would need some help for general maintenance of the house, but also gardening, and helping us sometimes with the kids (especially when one of us is away for work for example).
    All the tasks are simple and will adapt with your skills and preferences.

    We speak French of course, Alice and Lital are fluent in English, and Lital speaks Hebrew.

    Appart from helping us and enjoying the warm atmosphere of our home, you can enjoy our countryside landscapes, spend some time in Paris, visit Normandy beaches...

    We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Alice, Lital and the kids.
