  • Description


    We are a family of 4 : Stéphane (36), Julie (32), our sons Arthur (4) and Milo (2)

    We think workaway is a great way for travelers to be immersed in a culture and to discover a place. We also think it allows people to experience other kinds of exchanges : instead of paying for a room, guests can share their talents, knowledge, interests... with their hosts,

    We are very involved in the cultural life of Brest : we frequently go to the theatre (there is a wonderful performing art center in Brest which has great venues), to see art/photography exhibitions, concerts. Stephane is a musician (singing and piano) and Julie is a teacher in an engineering school. Our sons have a lot of energy. We try to include them in our life experiences as much as we can and as much as their age allows them to.
    We are also food lovers : spending time in our kitchen preparing meals is one of our favorite occupation. We like good products and try to support local and organic farming.
    We like being outside, enjoying the beautiful coast that is ours.

    Brest is located at the very end of Brittany (and France). The city is a very lively, there are lots of things going on. The area is wild and beautiful. And here people are very easygoing and spontaneous.

    We live in a house downtown, close to the tramway station. We bike a lot to go around places. Arthur goes to kindergarden 4 days a week from september to june and Milo has a super nanny who takes care of him everyday while we're at work. She'll be going on vacation this summer for a few weeks though.

  • Help


    We are looking for a volunteer for the summer to help with
    - taking care of the kids
    - embellishing our garden
    - daily chores (to be shared within the members of our family plus our host)

    We are looking for someone who seeks a true family experience, who can adapt well and be both responsible and fun with the kids. Someone that can be creative and trustworthy, gentle care taking. I believe our family is very welcoming, we have many friends here with whom we love to cook, talk or even take walks in the forest.

    We value honesty, curiosity, enriching experiences, cross cultural discoveries, acceptation of the other, humor, interest for others, being active in groups whether it be family, work,community.
    We believe communication is very important and the basis of a well functionning relationship.

    What else ...

    We are looking for people who can fit in our family life, with two young kids. It can be hectic, noisy but it is lot of fun. We also demand that the people respect our family rules : no smoking in the house, garbage recycling, no screen time for the kids.
    We see workaway as a real opportunity to meet people from other cultures and therefore it is important that our host participate in the daily chores, in the life of the house, in the different opportunities that we'll have to talk...
