  • Description


    We are a family of 4, living in a house in Provins, a listed medieval town and would love to welcome a volunteer for an enriching cultural exchange. We enjoy music and cultural outings.

    Our girls have grown up compared to the pictures and one of them is going to college, she is 16 years old, while the second one is 18 years old and studies at home.
    We have a very sweet and cuddly pussy.
    The biggest help I need at the moment is the removation of a part of our kitchen. But if you don't have this kind of skill, the second help i would need consists in the preparation of meals, because I'm not good at cooking but I appreciate the good dishes, even very simple :)
    My husband works, and I work from home!

    Essentially, we appreciate a volunteer who loves to cook, even if it's very simple! If you're a musician, it's even better!


    Nous sommes une famille de 4 personnes, vivant dans une jolie maison située dans Provins, une cité médiévale classée et serions ravis d'accueillir un.e bénévole pour un échange culturel enrichissant. Nous apprécions beaucoup la musique et les sorties culturelles.

    Nos filles ont grandi par rapport aux photos et l'une d'elle va au collège, elle a 16 ans, tandis que la seconde qui a 18 ans étudie à la maison.
    Nous avons une chatte très douce et câline.
    La plus grande aide dont j'ai besoin pour le moment est la rénovation d'une partie de notre cuisine. Mais si vous n'avez pas de compétence dans ce domaine, la seconde option consiste en la préparation des repas, car je ne suis pas douée en cuisine mais j'apprécie les bons petits plats, même très simples :)
    Mon mari travaille, et moi je travaille de la maison !

    Essentiellement, nous apprécions un.e bénévole qui aime cuisiner, même si c'est très simple ! Si vous êtes de surcroît c'est encore mieux !
