We live in the village of Morières-les-Avignon, Provence, at 8 Km from Avignon.
Our house is at the edge of the village, it's an old family mansion with 3 big gardens and an old swimming pool (inflatable duck is not mandatory, we have several of them). A sweet greensward oasis, pretty quiet.
There is a railroad nearness the road, with essentially payload trains and also slow train for passengers; the line run between Marseille to Avignon and is useful for going in Avignon.
Michel, my husband is cabinet-maker and work as an artisan, and me I am busy in house holding an gardening with organic methods.
we have five children and the least, Marc, is 15 and still living with us and go in a Rudolf Steiner School in Sorgues; the four older children run their own life somewhere else.
We have been happy host for with another site during several years, but we don't suit completely to the definition for "a farm", the focus is more precise with "Workawaying".
We would be happy to welcome somebody for helping in gardening (organic) and general house holding, inside and outside.
Nous habitons à 8 Km d'Avignon, en Provence, dans le village de Morières.
C'est une ancienne maison de maîtres avec 3 grands jardins et une (vieille) piscine, une belle oasis de verdure assez tranquille.
Il y a une petite ligne de chemin de fer à proximité, ce qui permet d'aller rapidement à Avignon par exemple.
Michel, mon mari, est ébéniste et moi je m'occupe de la propriété. Notre dernier fils, Marc, a 15 ans (il est scolarisé à l'école Steiner de Sorgues).
Je serai heureuse d'accueillir des personnes pour m'aider en jardinage (bio) et à l'entretien général, maison et extérieur.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
we are a complete "european family", Michel's mother is a native italian and me, my mother was german, so different language can be spoken in our house, not always fluently but sufficiently to discuss; we have a great interest in organic farming but we are not specialists, philosophy, educational problems, ecology and so on are also some of our interest. Our region have a long history since Roman era and have always been a spot for cultural exchange.
we need help for organic gardening, householding and cooking essentially; Michel, my husband, is busy with is job, and I don't benefit of a strong health, so help is precious.
we offer a private bedroom with washbasin, and, of course we have the strong "french habit" to take our meal all together
well... our village is not the center of the world concerning art and distraction, but there are trains and bus to go in Avignon or more. We have been host before, and noone ever complained with that
