  • Description


    We are a little family of 3 persons. Christine (me) and Patrick. We have a daughter who is 13 years old. We belong as well a lovely dog and 2 cats. We are living in a beautiful village in the Jura mountain in an old manor from the 19th century.

    We are very interested in international exchange, in art, sculpture, cooking, traveling, hiking and many other things.

    We can both speak fluently English and German. Patrick can also Russian, as well as a lttle bit of Chinese and Tibetan.

    We need a little hand for renovating the garden house, painting and also gardening, building a green house. Ideally February, March or April.

    We propose a private room with bathroom, good cooking (also vegetarian if necessary), a beautiful place.

    No smoker! Thanks.

    Our village is about 35 minutes from Pontarlier and 45 from Besançon. No public transport but we can pick up at the station.

    Christine and little Family.
