  • Description


    We are a cycling family.
    Christophe (50y.), 3 boys Aloïs (15 y), Simon 10 y and Martin 7 1/2y, Lina 13 y, and my self Justine 42y.
    We eat organic food, try to reduce waste and leave close to nature ( we used to be flexitarian but our teens became vegetarian since last spring). I personally eat dairy and gluten free. VEGETARIAN and VEGAN not an issue at all !

    Christophe travels for work. I need help ( household and babysitting ) when he is away. We will be happy to host either a native English or Spanish speaking to help the children get the language and culture.
    Simon and Martin are homeschooled and have some weekly actitivies (piano, drums, basketball, judo and visits to museum or so).

    We live in a nice house surrounded by nature and a lake in the French Alps. Perfect place to practice cycling and MTB or hiking.
    25 min from Annecy lake or Aix les Bains

    Our neighbor grow organic berries for a living. They have chicken and three cats. We have ducks (Indian runners).
    They always need help if you are interested in learning about farming while staying with us.

    Language and cultural exchange: bring some of your country in our daily life so that we can travel while staying at home ;-D

    I'm running three accomodations on the lake of Annecy through Aibrnb. During the season (April to September), I might ask help some days instead of being with the children (no scrubbing only lighter tasks such as making beds,hoovering or mowing the grass). Timetable can be fixed for each week.
