  • Description


    Hello! I am a mother with my 6 year old daughter and have bought a big amazing place last may. We are settling in but there is alot to do especially as my season is coming up. I am a hot air balloon pilot and do commercial flights in the area. I leave my house at 5am and come back around 11am which means that I need someone to sleep at the house and to have breakfast with my daughter until I come back!
    In march, especially considering the situation, i dont fly very much so your help would be mostly about the house and the outside area.
    I would love this place to be self sustainable someday, today is only the beginning!
    This year, I would like to focus on getting the house ready for welcoming balloon passengers before the flights. There is an independant studio that I would like to make nice for that. So it means moving furniture and decorating.
    Your help would be mostly doing up the garden and all outdoor space.
    We have chickens and poneys and we are surrounded by nature. ( 2h and a half) we have a big stream around the land that we can swim in if it gets warm and where we could create a liitle hang out beach.
    There is space for you in the house, with an independant entrance and bathroom.
    We shop at markets and can cook together sometimes and other times have our own space and rytheme.
    there is a big space in the house that can be used for yoga, dance or music.
    we are getting a piano soon!
    There are lots of little medieval villages to visit, countryside to explore, rivers, forest, cliffs, caves etc...
    My work depends on the weather which means that the help I need depends on it too. When I fly I need help with my daughter and with house, when I don’t we can visit the area and wonder around. I love being around people and have travelled a lot.
    Experience with vegetable growing and gardening would be great!
    I love to learn and to exchange cultures and knowledge.
