We are Martine and Geoffroy, I’m retired, but Martine still works full time. We have grown up children living in different areas of the country.
We live in beautiful Nayemont- les-Fosses, on the outskirts of St Die des Vosges in Lorraine. We also own a house in Châtenois Alsace .
Workers would be able to experience both locations as we would work and stay in Alsace about three or four days a week . The rest of the time would be spent in our house in Nayemont.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We can make you discover the region , visiting places of interest like a water powered sawmill and typical farms and many other things.
The Vosges mountains are ideally located between Lorraine and Alsace, and would be the perfect playground for hiking and trekking enthusiasts.
Saint Die is historically famous as it is here that the american continent was first named America in 1507,
The Lorraine region is famous for its quiche lorraine, pâté lorrain and mirabelle pies, jams, spirits, and so much more.
Our house is strategically located between Colmar and Strasbourg, right in the center of Alsace, It is about 20 km from the German border.
Alsace is renowed for its Munster cheese, « foie gras » and delicious white wines,
Renovations are needed on both houses, and workers with building, tiling, painting , drywalling and carpentry experience are needed. Depending on the season, gardening might also be on the agenda.
Projects for workers :
Our priorities at the moment are to insulate our attic, and to install a controlled mechanical ventilation system, Both jobs would take place in our house in Nayemont,
When this is done, we will start working on our house in Alsace,
We are flexible and will make sure that workers are given chores they feel comfortable with,
A bedroom and it's own bathroom at the first floor of our house
We will share meals ...and we hope, prepare them together and thereby discover new recipes
St Dié des Vosges is reachable from Alsace by coach or by train from Epinal , Nancy or Paris.
And obviously we 'll pick you up at the station no matter what time.
