    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our mountain paradise is a great place to speak, practice or learn french and english as those languages are both spoken here ( I am french and Daniel is Canadian).
    We live amongst a small community of workawayers, friends and family who are constantly helping with garden work, construction projects and general maintenance of the homestead. The atmosphere is always super lively around the house and we like to have fun.
    Here you can learn about self-sufficiency as we are completely autonomous in terms of energy and working our way towards being self sufficient in food.
    We live in a beautiful region full of mountains and lakes where you can do tons of hiking and sports. We have a natural swimming pool and a wood burning sauna on site that we take advantage of all the time. We also love making bonfires and sitting around it playing music and having drinks. The real passion around here, though is board games and there is always a game going at some point throughout the day.

    We are a family of 4 in the French Alps in an off grid chalet. We are looking for a person who really really loves kids and would be happy to look after our 2 sons : Manitoba (3 years old) and Solstice (1 year old) from 4 to 5 hours a day.
    The person should be positive, patient and open minded.
