We are in the beautiful French vineyards of Beaujolais (35 minutes from Lyon). We are a French- British couple with three small children (3, 2 and 0.5). The ‘big’ kids love being outside and going for adventures in our area.
We love music, movies, food and wine.
We live in a beautiful region next to a small village with all commodities, and a short trip to Lyon (30 mins by car or train) and Paris (1h30 by train).
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We're always up for a good conversation about wine and food and happy to share wine knowledge with workawayers. You can also tour the vineyards, castles, cellars in the area. Have a cultural exchange on French culture. We are also a short train journey from Paris which we can also help facilitate.
We are looking for people who love and are interested in children, who could help for minimum of one month. The main requirements are to love children and be dynamic, independent, patient and responsible. Tasks include:
- Playing with big(ger) kids (3, 2)
- Helping prepare the meals and give them their breakfast, lunch, « goûter » and dinner (setting and clearing the table, washing their hands&faces ...)
- Helping them to take their baths, go to sleep (reading a story ...)
We have a comfortable and fairly spacious guest house located in a wing of the house with a separate entrance, a living room and bedroom with bathroom.
In your off time you can explore within a couple of hours or through day trips the Beaujolais, Burgundy, Lyon a region of France that is rich in history and chateaux; this would be perfect for those who love the good things in life: good food, history, French culture, cheeses and wines, etc. Paris is also very accessible by train.
A valid driving license would be useful but not necessary.
