  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple Per- Italy (early 40s) with a 6yrs child. we live in Cocachimba, Amazonas region in Peru (1800 masl, not jungle, just tropical Andes :)) We need French speaking persons to help us with the distance complementary French school programme of our son about one hour per day, eventually play with him. We also appreciate help with website translation, garden cultivation, sharing with family cooking, giving a hand with general maintenance, help us with the creation and/or installation of some wood stuff like signs, shelves, ukele or music lessons, ecc.

    We have recently open this lodge, we have 3 cabins that we rent to tourists and visitors from all around the world, we keep the property with the help of Dora who work here. We have also a green garden with some vegetables and also lots of fruit tress in process of growth or some already giving us their fruits :). We are in the upper part of Cocachimba town (220 inhabitants) The view of the Gocta waterfall (700 mts one of the biggest) is all over here. We are in the area know as the kingdom of the pre Inca civilisation: the Chachapoyas (lots of archeological sites around like Kuelap, and specially stunning nature perfect for trekking of all levels) . We have 3 dogs and two cats.

    we have a good wi fi connection . I also work online. But considering that we are in the Peruvian Andes it could happen that it slows down , or that it stops if there is a energy shut down , but is real not frequent at all. Is good anyway to have a cell phone with some data for back up if possible
