  • Description


    Hi there, my name is Caroline, I'm 54 (almost 55) and I live in Montcuq, a small village in the south of France, not that far from Toulouse (1h30). I've never used Workaway before, but my daughter Gaëlle told me about (she used it for a year when she was abroad), that's why I'm trying it now !

    I need some help in my house and in the garden from 20 to 27 of october (my daughter will be there during this week and I prefer not to be alone for the first host).

    I have a pretty nice family house : we start to renovate it with my husband, two years ago. He past away last year but w decided to finish what we start with my kids (I'm really proud of them). Today, my bigest son lives not that far from Montcuq, and he is actually working in my house : he is a tattoo artist and his tattoo parlor is in an annex of the house. My daughter lives in Paris and my youngest boy (22 already) is a military and he is living in the north.

    I really want to try new things and meet new peoples, that's why I'm trying workaway. If you are comming with joy and happiness, you are very welcomed !

    PS : I don't speak english but my daughter will be our translator if you don't speak french :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a bit about french culture : I am from the north of France so will have different version of this wonderful country ! If you like arts, my son is wonderful tattoo artist (ok, maybe not objective).

  • Help


    I need some help in the house for domestic chores and cooking (my daughter is vegan and I eat everything, so you will have choice). I have a small garden/terrace but during automn, there are a lot of leaves to remove and some space to clean. If you like it, you will also be welcomed to go for a walk with my australian sherpherd, Lykka :)

    You will have your own room and batheroom. We will share our meals (maybe not in the morning, I need to eat first, then I can talk haha). I have bikes if you need !

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will have your free time on the afternoon and there are a lot of things to do around. You can go for a walk at the lake, there is a pretty nice tower in the village, Cahors is a nice city that you can visit... If you like to run it's a really nice place (with drop !!), same for biking. I can't share my car but you can do hitchhike, it's pretty common in this area !
