  • Description

    Description

    I am hosting 17 migrants under 18 from Central Africa in the Centre of France and we are located near Bourges which is a wonderful medieval town with lots of tourism and history. 40 minutes away, we are in the middle of Sancerre reknown for its white wine and now its Pinot Noir. We are also 20 minutes away from Sologne where huge forests are to be visited. The accomodation is a room with WIFI and TV.
    We use organic vegies and meat for our meals and cook all meals on the premises.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about our food and wine culture. You will certainly learn about history as Bourges has been the theatre of many historical events throughout the century. World reknowned wine growing areas are just round the corner and always scenic to see at any time of the year. Markets are plentiful and rich of good organic produce which is used in the restaurant.

    Help

    People in their late thirties confident about their level of maintenance skills, DIY skills, painting, some plumbing, decorating and general upkeeping of a number of rooms need to apply. Ideally someone with electrical and plumbing knowledge would be really the best...The workaways should have an interest in food as it is an important subject to discuss specially in France!!! You will experience French and international food and the exchange of food cultures is more than welcome! I like workaways to plan a 4 weeks stay minimum in my place.

If you come here you will get to know the neighbours and my little community. It is fun!
