I am Brigitte, 60 and retired, living alone in a large house with two B&B-rooms. I need someone to help in the garden and to help renovating an old bedroom. It's not hard work but uneasy for a single person, even though I'm the energetic type! Each stay should be minimum one week, so we can have time to work and socialize together.I was a language teacher, travelled a lot , lived in Germany and Ireland, was the founding member of a charity in India , so we'll certainly have plenty to speak about and share...I speak English, German fluently and a little Spanish and Russian.You can improve your French but also your English here, and maybe I can improve my Spanish or my Russian! :)
DIY and building projects
Your average day's work will be around 4 or 5 hours, 5 days a week, but if we need to work longer, you'll have extra time off later. You'll have a bicycle at your disposal to cycle around this beautiful mountainous area. I can take you to the bus stop or the train station if you want to go to town or to take a day's off to visit Lyon. I'll make sure that you meet people to practise French if you wish. We 'll cook together so you can learn some basic french recipes.I eat mainly organic food, use the eggs of my hen and the vegetables of my garden as much as possible.
You will have your own bedroom and shower+ wifi. , the use of a bike.
