I was a workawayer in Portugal back in 2015. Now I have my own house and some projects to do here but not enough time for it. So I thought why not become a host this time!
I'm Cyril, 36 years old, I'm from La Rochelle, a historical city by the sea. I used to live in Europe when I was younger. I love meeting new people and culture.
I live alone in a 2 bedrooms house with a nice garden. You will have all the comfort you need here. I have bicycle you can use, city center is only 15minutes away and also the beach!
The tasks to do will be mostly outside, I have things to paint, tiles to put back on a wall, making cushion for my outside benches if you now how to sew, also I want to make a wall in my bathroom, some of the activities can be seen on the pictures.
You will help 25hours max on 5 days, I work during office hours and you might be alone during the day. But we will share the evening meal. I can also show you around during the evening or days off.
I expect people to stay 1 or 2 weeks.
I love making stuff and particularly with wood, you will be able to use my workshop if you want :)
I speak French, Spanish, English, and a little bit of Portuguese.
