    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am musician (pro) playing bagpipe, violin and singing the traditionnal music from where i grew up and live now, around Bourgoin-Jallieu. I've been making researches and i found a hundred still unknown songs ; i'm working on developping them and teaching them. I'm also passionated with this region, its history, politics, traditions, etc, i know very well the way traditionnal houses are built, i'm part of communities like one which is creating our local money.

  • Help


    Your help will be needed for destroying the wall cement facing, making electricity, covering then the wall with whitewash, and other littles things. I propose that you care yourself for the food, cause the help needed is not that much (eight or ten hours max per week).

    I'm opening a cafe in october or november 2018 in a small village (550 people). It is also where I live. It's an old and big house (about 300m²) built in clay in 1900 or less and the cafe opened in 1935. It didn't change at all since the 60's, and i'm gonna keep that, the essence, cause I love it. No garden at all, but beautiful landscape around great for trekking, and a marvelous pond for the eyes or fishing 3 minutes away. However, it really needs to be renovated and brought up to the standards. It's old, it's very dusty, I'm not gonna lie. BUT your room is all white repainted so perfectly clean. The bathroom is also fully renovated.

    The house is in Chèzeneuve. The bus is passing through. Ten minutes from Bourgoin-Jallieu (middle city with cinema, museums, supermarkets, pubs, just... everything). And thirty minutes from Lyon (bus, train, highway).
