Welcome as a volunteer in my family ! I need help with general maintenance and gardening in a nice house with swimming pool located in Nimes, close to many cultural and nature spots.
I am a paediatrician, specialized in child neurology and working in Nîmes, in a private practice as well as at the hospital. Sometimes I work from home with patients in Sweden practicing internet medicine. My ex-husband is swedish, that's why we all speak swedish and english, as well as french. We lived in Sweden until 2010. As I work a lot, and have 3 dogs to take care of, I need help with my big garden (3000 m2) and house. My youngest son, Wilhelm (21) does not live at home any longer. He lives in Le Pontet, close to Avignon and works as a riding teacher in a UCPA owned riding school. He comes to visit us regularly, so you will probably meet him. My 2 other children live at home: Alix (17) and Maxance (27). Alix plays tennis and is interested in singing and dancing. Maxance is at home after having spent several years in Sweden. Maxance is handicaped with a neurocognitive and neuromuscular disease. He cannot help us with any activity but takes care of himself and does not need help with daily activities.
This year, we need need help with cleaning the garden, but may need help with taking care of the house, like cleaning or ironing.
We eat organic and most of the time vegetarian food. We are used to food allergies, so it is no problem for us if you need special food.
We are very curious about foreign cultures and love exchanging about many different subjects. We have had many successful workaway experiences and would love to continue receiving people from other countries as a substitute for traveling. We prefer to receive couples, if possible, but accept single workawayers as well.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemy, we will only receive people with a vaccination certificate.

We would like to share our french and swedish cultures with you and learn from your culture, while getting some help from you refreshing some parts of the house (painting, arranging what needs to be arranged, cutting hedges, general seasonal gardening, planting shrubs, repairing broken parts of the house, giving us ideas...etc !).
