    Description

    Hello, we’re a couple with two boys at home, One of thirteen and one of nineteen, both polite and helpful. Musician and leather artisan, we’re about to sign for our own dreamed house which will be as special and unconventional as us.
    We have a friendly fat ginger cat and maybe later a dog.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our house will be in a French little town ( 3000 inhabitants). It’s kind of remote (Lyon and Geneva are both around 65 km ) but there is a train station 200 meters from the house. There are also a number of bus lines from there.
    Around we have the Rhône with its cycling way and we’re next to a beautiful little valley named the Valromey with a lot of hiking tracks.
    We have a very sharing way of life with a lot of discussion about every type of subject from science to economy or music.
    We adults often play and record our music (Drum, bass, keyboard and guitar) and are willing to build a recording studio.

    Help

    The workawayers will be helping alongside a family to renovate their new home.
    We’ll have to bring down and raise walls and partitions, do some masonry, clean old walls (remove the coat, let appear stones) move the rubble and so on, build the garden, terrace, plant and prune and so on, or relieve us with the household: cooking, shopping, cleaning and so on.

    At first the bedrooms are going to be spartiate. We’ll have to build a proper bathroom and the kitchen will be an assembly of scrap. We’ll have to make everything and you as us will live in works for a while. You’ll have a bed, sheets and a towel, a roof above your head and potable water inside the house.
    If you’re willing to cook we’ll be very happy, if not, we’re the kind of no hour eating and cooking so don’t expect a regular 19 o clock meal.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Hiking, cycling, skying in winter, lakes and rivers, a next to nature way of life. Or a train ticket and the cosmopolitan city of Geneva, the historical Lyon or other rail accessible locations.
    We’re early wakers and we like the good dear, but rarely drink alcohol.
