    We are a British family living in France, we would like to welcome a single person or couple into our home on the Côte d’Azur to help with our house and garden.
    We would like help with our garden we want to learn more about composting growing vegetables and how to live more gently on the earth.

    We have lived around the world including Dubai Abu Dhabi, Asia, Australia, and now France....! We love to experience and learn from different cultures and love food from around the world.

    Our 3 children are 17, 15, and 12 yrs old they are all bi lingual speaking English and French.
    In exchange we can help teach you English and perhaps French.
    We have lots of pets, chickens, lots of rabbits, a guinea pig, a turtle and a cat.

    We all like to help in the kitchen and love trying new cuisines and sharing food together, and welcome your favorite foods.

    We live very close to bus and train links, Cannes is just 30 mins away and Nice international airport is a 35mins drive away. You will have plenty of time and places to explore while staying with us.
