We are a family of 5 living in Grenoble, at the heart of the French Alps. We live in town in a small house with a small garden where we can rest and have a barbecue. We have a nice dog and a few guiniea pigs in the garden. We have a 13 year old boy and two daughters (11 and 6). We speak French and English.
In our town, you can easily take advantage of the city life or rush off to the mountain for hiking or mountaineering bike trips. In winter, we go skiing a lot.
For those who like city life, Grenoble is a city of roughly 500,000 with at least 50,000 students wich means lots of cafés and terrasses in the ancient city center. There are quite a few museums, great concert halls for all likes and great movie theatres.
There are lots of coaches taking you to the mountains and blablacar is rather active too.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We don't need anybody just now and for the whole winter.
We had workawers last spring and it was a great experience. Their job was to teach our older son German and it really worked!
We will probably look for someone again in spring 2016 to help us with our two daughters (our son is in Germany now!).
The workaway will have a small room.
Bathroom is shared with the family.
This is our first time with workaway but it seems like a great way of discovering people and cultures. We want the workawaer to feel at home and free to choose between activities with the whole family and living their lives freely! We can activily help learn some French if they want to!
