  • Description


    -3 first weeks of july
    - after the 15th of August

    We are a 59 and 67 years old french couple, we are used to have foreign people helping us (4/5 hours a day).
    We are usually looking for volunteers all the time, mostly for period around 3/4 weeks or more .

    You will not have any house keeping to do, we just expect some help with our disabled daughter,Barbara (for example: do some training like walking in the pool in summer, go for a walk outside, play with Barbara in the garden). We are only looking for girl as volunteers.
    We are living in a very nice area ,close to Montélimar (1km), close to Avignon (80km), and to the gorges de l'ardèche (french gran canyon) (40km). In june and July, you will enjoy lavender field all around.
    It's also very sunny and warm.
    I think we are typically french.
    we love good food and good cheese.
    we are naturist (nudist/fkk) (in our pool in summer or hammam, jaccuzzi, or sauna in winter), we need someone like us, having no problem with nudity.
    We are used to very healthy food (many vegetables and fruits from the garden.
    Special diets are possible (vegetarian for example), but vegan (like no honey, no eggs , no cheese or no butter) would be difficlt to manage for us.
    we have chickens (3 fresh eggs a day).
