I'm Guylaine, a middle aged woman. I'm living alone. I prefer to receive couples or duets of friends. I'm living in Ardèche , which is for me a fantastic county for the beautiful and peaceful landscapes.
I have already received workaways and it was a very good experience and I'm used to hosting peoples at home because I really enjoying cultural exchanges. I'm looking to improve my english spoken or learning italian language, so I will be pleased to discuss with you !
My house have been built, 20 years ago, by following ecolocical principles on an 2 hectars land. It is a really calm and sunny place. it is 3 km from the first village. The parcel have a lot of fruits trees, flowers and vegetables, and a part of the place is reserved for animals ( two sheeps, and four chickens). At last I've a young and energic black labrador.
There is lots of differents works to do around and inside the house. ( gardening , decorating, animals cares,) according to the seasons. This year I want to renovate the house and the garden by giving a big paint of DIY and gardening in March and April.
Ardeche is a really touristical place . there is lots of things to do ( outdoors sports, canoe, bicycle, walks, visites, historical patrimony etc...) I love ardeche and It will be a pleasure for me to make you discover its best places!

I will be Happy to share french familly life with you: For March and April we will be a small group of 3 adults and two young people plus you. We have our meals together (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Outside working hours we will be happy to show you around our beautiful region. My daughter and her friend speak English fluently.:) I will love to discuss with you to share our cultures, I'm interested by gastronomy, music, cinema, literature and we love play board games. We can visit ardeche during sunny days.
The first village is 3 km , it easy to go there by walking, I can lend you a bike or drive you if possible. There, you can take bus for all directions .
I gather friends in March and April to give a facelift to the house and the garden. so there will be painting and DIY, but also gardening
You will have your own bedroom.
it is important to know that it is an ecological house, so we have ecoligical toilets ( no water). Our electricity comes from photovoltaic panel, so we have to be carefull with energy consumption . The bedrooms are confortable.
I think it's better if you are sensible to ecology, you like animals, and you share my wish to have exchange,
