  • Description


    We're a Franco-Canadian couple, with two young children and two sweet cats. Our home has been in the family since the 1600s so there is lots of history here and you will be walking in the footsteps of the illustrious ancestors!
    We love music, movies (movie nights are always fun moments in our house), and good food and good wine (naturally!).
    The Loire Valley is a peaceful and beautiful part of France, not too far from Paris. We relish in the intense blue and sunny skies of the summer and our house can feel like a peaceful haven, far from the outside world.

    We need green thumbs and garden enthusiasts to help with gardening and landscaping on the property.
    If you're interested in eco-projects we would love someone with an experience in permaculture to help us with our veggie patch or with gardening etc.
    Those with cooking skills and passion for food and wine are always welcome.
    In the Fall of 2019 and into 2020 we'll be looking for childcare help as well. German speakers are especially welcome!
    We are also happy to welcome long-term Workawayers.
