    Description

    Hello! Bienvenue!

    My name is Manon and our family is bicultural French from France and bilingual English and French Canadian. We presently live in Montréal, Québec, Canada. We have hosted over 40+ workawayers throughout our lives and really love meeting and hosting people from all over the planet. We are well travelled, easygoing and used to living with other people and families.

    Jérôme is a philosopher and professor. I run a small business and work mainly from home. We have a 10 year old sporty child who loves to play soccer, climb and is discovering parcours. My mom lives close by, is in her 70's and spends time with us as well. We are an active busy family and can happily host positive independent workawayers who feel comfortable both spending time with our family and independently enjoying all that Montreal has to offer.

    We live in an 100 sqm apartment in Montréal about 10 min walk from the metro and 15 minute metro ride to downtown. We have a spare room with a queen size bed, a desk and some nice exercise equipment. We are well equipped and our home is bright and comfortable.

    As we like welcoming people to our home we always have things or projects that need doing. Some examples are:

    -Helping out in the apartment with shopping, meals and tidying up
    -Playing games and sports with our child
    -Teaching us Spanish
    -Helping up with design projects with photography, graphic arts, etc
    -Programming skills as we have a few websites that need improvement
    -Database or Excel skills always welcome
    -Writing skills in English or in French as we write blogs and more
    -Social media skills are always welcome in this day and age
    -And whatever fun project we can come up together based on your skills and our needs

    We are able to host people almost anytime and for a minimum of 3 weeks (1-3 months preferable when everyone is happy). In exchange for lodging and food we would ask that you give 25 hours a week of your time over a 5 day period. Tasks will be defined as per your skills and interests.

    We do not have pets and unfortunately cannot host pets as we are sensitive to allergens. We are non smokers and really don't like the smell of smoke (yash....) so we cannot host regular day to day smokers. We eat all types of healthy food including meat once in a while so if you follow a strict vegan diet this may not be the right home for you. We could possibly host a small family as long as you would all be willing to stay in the same bedroom (a queen bed with an added single mattress on the floor).

    We have a few spaces available now so please feel free to contact us if you want more information. I am happy to video-call together to show you our environment and get to know us better.
