  • Description


    We are a family of 3, with a 5-Year old little girl.
    We have travelled around the world for many months and at the moment need to stay in France for a while.

    Since about a year, we have openned an organic food store, so we are very well concerned about healthy eating and environemental preservation.
    We live in a village called Ungersheim, which is very much involved in ecological projects such as a eco-wooden houses, organic food production, sustainable energies...
    Ungersheim is located in Alsace which is a great region to discover :
    - 25 minutes to Mulhouse
    - 30 minutes to Colmar
    - 60 minutes to Strasbourg
    - 45 minutes to Bâle in Switzerland
    - 30 minutes to Germany

    This is the right moment to host travellers in exchange with conversational moments with us (few hours a week) to help us teach englisg to our daughter to improve her english skills as we will need this to go travel again.
    We really love to meet people from various countries and if you love to cook, this is going to be a great experience also !

    We have previously hosted an au pair. This was a great experience and we will surely do it again in the futur, but during school period, we don't need much babysitting.

    Duration : 1-5 nights for a couple and 60-90 nights for a girl/woman travelling alone, depending on your project.

    Please contact us for any further information.

  • Help


    First of all, we look for people to help us teaching english to our daughter. No need to be a teacher, just speeking good english and being willing to spend time talking with her/us.

    Then, as a member of the house, since we work a lot, some help with the housework will be appreciated.
