  • Description


    Dear Workaway-ers,
    We are a recomposed family with 2 boys aged 12 & 14, plus a sweet cat called sushi.

    We are offering to learn French and enjoy the French Riviera Côte d'Azur, where we live just between Nice and Cannes (10km from the airport), including private aircon room, internet, food. We live in a gated community with a pool & small shops, easy transport to main attractions.

    We are looking for a person to help us re-organize the house, children's room and bookshelves, helping in the house, with kids homework. Also some help with home-office, papers, a bit of gardening, and some cooking, shopping.

    Another project in parallel could be for a internet-savvy person who can support us with creating an attractive online-presence-concept, illustrating Michael's small consulting business.

    Last but not least is of course helping our with the children (cooking, music, homework etc) when I travel 1-3nights every now and then.

    Looking to hear from you soon!
