  • Description


    I'm Thelma from Nigeria origin with french nationality. I'm married and I have a daughter of 17years old. We live in Bordeaux a big city in France and we need help with our big garden and our house. We have a lovely cat and 3 chicken.
    We live 15 km from Bordeaux down town so it would be nice if you have a drivig licence to be a bit more independent.
    My daughter is most of the time at school and she loves to swimm in her swimmingclub 3 times a week. I stay most of the time with my daughter at home because my husband works out of France.

    We search a young girl for my daughter who is open minded and who like to share our way of life. But we have also some hard work (for exemple renovation) in the garden so it's also possible for you to come if you are a men.

    I love cooking african and french food so if you have a very strict diets requirements (vigans or vegetariains strictly) it would be difficult for us to bear.

    We have a free room to accommodate a single person or a couple. We have a visitors bathroom outside the house with a clean bath room with toilllet and hot water ,
    In exchange you will give us a hand in the garden and in the cleaning of our house. And we need help with building of our garden house and terasse. So if you have some experience with this it would be very nice! What I need mostly someone who's good in renovation, painting, in th summer, I have a garage which I don't pack my cars ,I want to renovation in it ,to use it has a galarie in exposing Nogerian art works ,I need some one with experience, thanks and all the best Thelma jallon
