  • Description


    Hi there !

    We are Nelly and Cédric, a couple with a 3 years baby boy named Valentin.

    Currently looking for help in gardening and "post winter" house maintenance for March 2021 :)

    We are living in the beautiful Dordogne in a country area, so you will taste the slow and green life with us !

    It's very quiet with all convenience by 10 mn drive.
    Bordeaux is 2 hours drive and 1 hour train, Paris 5 hours drive or 4 hours train.

    We are 38 and 36 years old, we love travelling around the world and have been backpacking also with workaway experiences in Oceania few years ago.

    We love sports, Nelly is a Yoga instructor, and Cédric go often for a forest run near the house.

    We want to share our passions, and talk in many languages with our baby boy =)
    It means for exemple to share yoga session in front of sunset or cook a french pastry together.. or both !

    You may help around the house with gardening, cleaning, cooking and caring our boy.

    We provide a private comfortable room with its bathroom in our house, free wifi and healthy food.
    2 / 3 time per week we would like you to cook simple vegetarian food for us.
    In exchange you will be able to use our car, our bikes, and the huge pool.

    Please write us and tell us your story, what is motivating you to come ? what are your hobbies ?

    looking forward to hear from you !

    - Please, non smokers only -
