  • Description


    We are a small family of 4. Jérôme, Alexia, Nala (3) and Mali (1) living on a beautiful farm in the lovely department of Aveyron (France). Jérôme is a walking guide and slowly but surely installing himself as a "paysan boulanger", Alexia is a yoga teacher and also works part-time in a therapy center where people are healed with the help of horses. At the farm we have a horse (Sanson), a mule (Pilou), a dog (Kita) and chickens. We are urgently in need of someone who can come and help Jérôme with the construction of the oven, woodcutting, some renovations,...We are looking for someone who likes to be around children and animals, who does things with a smile and who's the owner of a big thankful heart. We are welcoming, easygoing, smiley, positive and interested people who love to learn from life and other (human) beings about whatever it is that they are here to teach us. We love music and dancing !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Jérôme is French, Alexia half German, half Belgium. Between us we speak English. With the kids we speak French and Dutch. The environment we live in is amazing. You can just walk out of the door and find yourself in nature. We live in a little village called Buzeins in between 2 cities (40 min away), Rodez & Millau. Jérôme, knows many nice spots to visit, has a big knowledge about plants and flowers and is a real handy man who loves to give things a second life. If a yoga experience could interest you, Alexia would like to take you along her yoga journey. We both love horses and love to go out riding uniterrupted in our lovely surroundings. If you'd like to learn more about connecting with horses we'd be happy to teach you.

  • Accommodation


    You'd be living in an old farm build out of stone in a little village (160 habitants) but close to Sévérac d'Aveyron (12 km) and 2 cities (Millau and Rodez). You'd have a comfortable and beautiful room or caravan for you with connection to internet. For a couple of hours of your time 5 days a week, we offer you shelter and food.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is possible to bring your animal but only if they are friendly with other animals and humans (especially children!)
    If you google Sévérac-le-Château you'll be able to find information about the location and the many cultural sites and incredibly beautiful natural spots to visit. This is a dream location for biking, hiking, horseriding, rock climbing, canoeing, skydiving or just to spend some peaceful time in nature. Alexia works in the department of Lozère which has also some breathtaking places to visit.
