    Description

    Hello, we are a German-French couple with three children. Florence (2002) and Frédéric (2003) will be away in September 2021 to study and only Johannes (2010) will remain in the house. And Chupa, our husky-border collie mongrel. So that it doesn't get too quiet, we are happy to have workawayers. We have hosted people and have done many house exchanges .
    There's always something to do; I'd love to do some wallpainting soon, some gardening, help re-roof a garage, play board games with me and John in the evenings, explore Normandy. And if you can cook, go for it! Also if you can make a website, I'd love to have you!
    Pierre (1970) is a mechanics teacher at the local lycée, I (1976) teach German and English mainly to adults in the house and via Skype. At home we speak German and French. If you want to speak English with Johannes, please do. I can also give you German, English or French lessons...
    Our house is in the centre (big garden with four beehives) of a town of 12.000 inhabitants in the middle of Normandy. 2 hours to Paris, 60 km west of Rouen, 30 km from the coast (Etretat, Fécamp, LeHavre).
    Don't hesitate to contact us! Welcome!!!

    Hallo, wir sind ein deutsch-französisches Paar mit drei Kindern. Florence (2002) und Frédéric (2003) sind im September 2021 weg zum Studieren und es bleibt nur Johannes (2010) im Haus. Und Chupa, unsere Husky-Border Collie Mischlingshündin. Damit es nicht zu still wird, freuen wir uns über workawayers. Wir beherbergen auch manchmal

    Es gibt immer was zu tun; ich würde demnächst gerne streichen, etwas Gartenarbeit, ein Garagendach neu decken helfen, mit mir und Johannes Abends Gesellschaftsspiele spielen, die Normandie entdecken. Und wenn du kochen kannst, nur zu! Auch wenn du eine Internetseite erstellen kannst, gerne!
    Pierre (1970) ist Mechanik-Lehrer am Lycée, ich (1976) unterrichte im Haus und per Skype hauptsächlich Erwachsenen Deutsch und Englisch. Zu Hause sprechen wir Deutsch und Französisch. Wenn du mit Johannes Englisch sprechen willst, gerne. Ich kann dir auch Deutsch, Englisch oder Französisch-Unterricht geben...
    Unser Haus ist in der Innenstadt (großer Garten mit vier Bienenstöcken) einer 12.000 Einwohner großen Stadt inmitten der Normandie. 60 km westlich von Rouen, 30 Km von der Küste (Etretat, Fécamp, LeHavre) entfernt.
    Herzlich willkommen!!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are already a bi-national couple. Pierre is from Grenoble, my father lives in Germany, my mother in Ireland. We like to travel, to host and to meet people from other cultures. I have already set up / organized private, school and orchestra exchanges with England and Germany. I love meeting other people. I have lived in six different countries.
    The Normandy is very interesting as a holiday region, even if our town is not touristy. We bring different languages and a mix of different European cultures.
