  • Description


    We are a family of 6 persons (Pascal and Isabelle, a couple with 4 daughters: Coline 13,Emy 11,Johana 7 et Mélissa 2 years). Our daughters are going to try school this year and my husband is a school teacher. We are renovating our house and we fit out the outside. We have hens, rabbits,a dog, cat to whom we bring every day care according to their needs. We love playing games and listening music. We would be delighted to share all these activities with people coming from other horizons. We are not vegetarian but almost. We like welcoming, sharing, discussing and discovering new cultures.

    Nous sommes une famille de 6 (Pascal et Isabelle, couple avec 4 filles: Coline13,Emy 11,Johana 7 et Mélissa 4ans). Nos filles vont faire la rentrée à l'école après avoir fait plusieurs année d'école à la maison. Anciennement animatrice pour enfants j'ai décidé de m'occuper de nos filles et mon mari est professeur des écoles. Nous rénovons notre maison et aménageons notre extérieur. Nous avons des poules, des lapins, des chiens, un chat à qui nous apportons tous les jours des soins en fonction de leurs besoins. Nous aimons beaucoup jouer et écouter la musique. Nous serions ravis de partager toutes ces activités avec des personnes venant d'autres horizons. Nous ne sommes pas végétariens mais presque. Nous aimons accueillir, partager, discuter et découvrir de nouvelles cultures.

  • Help


    We would like you to help our daughters with activities, exchanges and discoveries and we think that the coming of workaway can liven up this curiosity. Help can be aswell outdoor works (garden,...) and when Pascal is here it can be for renovation except if you have experiences and you fell doing it by yourself.

    Nos filles sont demandeuses d'activités, d'échanges et de découvertes et nous pensons que la venue de workaway peut animer cette curiosité. Il est possible d'aider sur l'aménagement extérieur, le jardin et quand Pascal est là cela peut être pour les travaux de rénovation à moins que vous ayez des expériences en construction et que vous vous sentez le faire.
