  • Help


    Bernard and Valérie created a yoga and arts center in 2015 and many people already came on workaway to help at the renovation and at gardening.
    Augustin and Songyi, their eldest son and his Korean wife have just joined. They have two boys (Ian, 8 years old and Abel, 2 years old) and twins, Leila and Luna, born on May 26th 2020, now one year old. So they are looking for help from end of August onwards...!
    Bernard and Valérie's children live all over the world and have travelled a lot so they want workawayers to be as happy at their place as their children have been at others'.

    This host offers a language exchange
    We would love to offer a Franco Korean exchange : we speak Korean at home with the kids because Songyi is Korean. Songyi is learning French since her arrival in France. So she needs practicing. A long stay in our family could benefit a French student in Korean language. We would love to have an au-pair from September onwards. Ideally for one full year or at least for six months. A Korean girl who wants to practice French would also be happy with us and so would we ! Nous parlons coréen à la maison pour Songyi et les enfants. Songyi apprend le français depuis son arrivée en France mais elle a beaucoup de travail avec les bébés. Elle aimerait pouvoir pratiquer plus le français. Un séjour chez nous serait très intéressant pour une française qui étudie la langue coréenne. Nous cherchons une fille au-pair à partir du mois de septembre, pour un an si possible et pour six mois au moins. Une jeune fille coréenne qui souhaite apprendre le français serait aussi très bienvenue et tirerait grand profit d'un long séjour chez nous.

  • Accommodation

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    When the children were younger several babysitters stayed with us for several months and we remained friends over the years.

    In the surroundings you will find preserved nature, silence and simple people. Lots of hiking paths. Many artistic initiatives on a modest but friendly scale. The nearest "big town" is Autun : a beautiful ancient town. At an hour train drive, Dijon, Beaune and Lyon are great cultural centers. Nearer to our house, the great archeological centre of Bibracte and the buddhist Temple of Thousand Buddhas.
