Who are we ?
We are a small family, with our 3 young boys who are 4, 6 and 8 years old (Jordan, Ethan and Kean). They both go to school. We would like to share with you the Workaway adventure for several years (it can be an adventure with diferents workwayers).
It's been a childhood dream to travel. They love to go out, They'd love to discover the world, so I chose for this second year to make them travel by welcoming the world through the traveler :)
We have also welcom 3 workawayers last summer, and it would be a fabulous expérience.
Where do we live ?
We live in a region called "Isère" and our city is Grenoble : we have plenty of beautiful mountains, the Vercors, the Chartreuse and Belledonne. We spend all year long between skiing, mountain walks and the plains (the countryside and the city are close from each other), there is a lot to discover: Mont Blanc, the lakes (especially the one of Annecy and Geneva)
Life is very active but the calm of the heights is very close. There is a lot to do in the city center : restaurants, shopping, bars, clubs, sports, cafés, etc.. In your free time, you wouldn't get bored 😊
We live in a small town, Crolles, (10 minutes from Grenoble by car, 30 minutes by bus, 20 by car) where everything is done on foot and by bike (I myself take the bus to work in Grenoble each day).
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Since I want this experience to be the more enriching possible for each of us, I'd like to pay the unlimited bus subscription which costs 80€ monthly.
Why do we need you ?
We are eager to share our worlds and our mutual values, and to make you discover our beautiful region and our beautiful country, France.
We would like to share our lifestyle change challenges : zero waste home, Positive eduction, entrepreneurship, leadership and financial freedom.
We want our children to speak English fluently (and learn other languages too) while having fun and having real contact with other people.
What would it be like with us ?
We have to work a lot this year and both of us (my husband and I)have 2 busy jobs so we would need someone to get the children back after school (everything is to be done on foot because it's really close to the apartment) You would also have to make them eat, have showers and play games of course! The boys are really smiling and friendly, always ready to play sports or games or going outside, they love reading, drawing and writing you can't stop them 😊
We also have a little vegetable garden near the appartement (3 minutes on walk).
How much would you have to work ?
So, you would have to take care of the children :
- every evening after school, on Monday, Thursday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, to 6pm at 8pm, (very often you'll be never alone with children, I or/and the farher's children w'll be at home.
- 2 evenings from 6 p.m to late every weeks (when i'm not at home from thusday to saturday night - and beacause the father's children can be called at any time durong the night by customers (he is owner of a local private concierge company).
We prefer someone who speak and understand a bit French, and someone can stay all summer.
Wednesday would be free normally since Grandma and Grandpa would take care of them, and 2 weekend/ month would be free too.
We will need someone the whole year, but we are okay to have different people as long as each person stays at least 3 months with us. But feel free to contact me so we could discuss over it 😊
I will offerd payement from september (50€/weeks).
We need someone very quickly !
Our apartment is on the first floor of a small building, and a bedroom would be at your disposal. For the rest, you would have to share the whole apartement with us each day.
Currently, my 27-years-old sister-in-law and also the auntie of the boys (who has already traveled via workaway) looks after the kids at night. But as she creates her own business, she needs some time to do it. However, she would be there at the beginning a few nights to help you feeling at ease and also talk to you (she is fluent in English and Spanish and she's a great girl!)
We hope to hear from you quickly :) !
See you soon hopefully
