  • Description


    We are a family living in the south center of France: 3 hours from Spain, one hour from Toulouse the biggest city, but we are living at just 10 km from the UNESCO city : Albi ,60000 people.
    The 4 children( twins boys17 years old, and 2 girls 7 and 9 years old) are all at school all the day. Just the 2 adults stay at home all day long: we don't have a work outside, just we are building a new house with wood (geodesic dome) but you don't need special habilities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We share all the meals together : all family eat at the same time every day.
    We stay all the day at home because we don't have a work outside from home.
    So we have a lot of time to communicate with the helpeers, to learn them french if they want.

  • Help


    You can do what you prefer: help to built a wood domus or prefer cooking? no problem, you can choose.
    Just if you are coming from a foreing country, speak a little your langage during the meals.
    No need specially to take care from childre because they are not very young: 7 and 9 years old but very independant and two oldest: twins 17 years old.
    The twins can learn you to do motorbike enduro, trial motorbike and trial bicicle!!
