  • Description

    Description

    In english :
    We are a Franco-German family of 46 and 41 years old with two children aged 9 years and 6 years. We eat mostly bio, and we almost don't buy any meat. We love cooking, and we make our own bread, pizza, houmous, cakes ....
    We live in a big house 15 km from the Atlantic coast in a small village named Uza, between Bordeaux and Biarritz. The beach is very near, and we have some bikes you could use.
    For us workaway provides a way to learn from each others.
    We are looking for a real exchange. We have had several persons in our house and we have learned a lot together.

    Who are we ?
    Jerome 's a circus artist (juggling, fire, music). He gives theatre courses, and shows all year long in theatre places. We can exchange tips !0)

    Effi is a pharmacist and works 6 km away from home, four days a week.
    Children understand German. Jérôme studied in the US for a year (when he was young !!!!) with Effi we can both speak english.

    En français !
    Pour nous WORKAWAY permet avant tout un échange, nous avons appris beaucoup des personnes que nous avons accueilli ces dernières années !

    Nous sommes une famille Franco-allemande, de 46 ans et 41 ans avec deux enfants de 9 ans et 6 ans et demi. Nous habitons une grande maison à 15 km de la côte atlantique dans un petit village entre Bordeaux et Bayonne. Nous sommes proche de la plage de Contis. J'ai des vélos pour vous déplacer si besoin.

    Jérôme est artiste de cirque (feu, roue cyr, musique, jonglerie) , il organise des stages de clown, des cours de chant.

    Effi est pharmacienne et travaille à 6 km de la maison, 4 jours par semaine.

    Nous mangeons équilibré, faisons notre pain (c'est facile !) nous avons un poêle à bois, une chauffe eau solaire, une phyto épuration on essaie d'être responsables.

    Les enfants comprennent l'allemand. Nous parlons tous les deux l'Anglais.
