  • Description


    We are a family, with Mother, Father, 10 year old daughter and 9 year old son. We are looking for a French speaking workaway to live with us and help around the house, and with the family childcare, cooking and general housework. We live in a beautiful small town full of character and many amenities, perfect for walking, cycling, or sightseeing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our small town is very close to Oxford, with a direct bus route only 2 minute walk away. There are shops and bars within a 5 minute walk of our house. As a family we speak English, so hopefully we could assist with conversation English for anyone hoping to learn. The mother speaks reasonable French, so we are hoping a workaway could help us with French and we could help them with English.

  • Help


    We live in a beautiful small town outside Oxford with good travel links into London. We have 2 children of 9 and 10, and are looking for someone to generally help with some childcare, cooking, cleaning around the house. We would like to help the children to speak French, so a native French speaker would be preferred.

    We live in a 4 bedroom family home with gardens very close to the centre of a small town with all amenities. The spare bedroom is a reasonable size. There is a nice kitchen with all amenities. Food will be provided, with family cooking shared between the work away and the householders. There is a small supermarket only a 5 minute walk from the house. It is a beautiful area, with a large stately home with generous grounds only 2 minutes away
