We are pleased to register on this global exchange site ! What a great idea !!
We are a family of 5 : my husband Olivier (41 y.o.) is a primary school teacher (for children from 9 to 11) in a small village next to our house, I am Caroline (42 y.o.) and I work in my own company in oenotourism, I guide people in wine chateaux, in villages with historical heritage, and I organize events around the wine of our region for tourists from France and around the world. And we have 3 daughters, our elder Justine (14), who is starting to organize to continue her studies in Australia, and our twins Philippine and Ondine who are 8 years old.
We love animals very much and our 4 cats, our dog and our rabbit make our home even more animated !
Our house is located in little subdivision in a small village, next to an average city. We are a 30 minute drive south of Bordeaux.
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Live a few times in french family as ours, will be a incredible experience for you and for us ! Depending on the time you stay with us, we 'll show you the beautiful places around our city : le Bassin d'Arcachon with "la dune du Pyla", Bordeaux : what an amazing historical city ♥️ ! And so many many many french places if you like to discover geography, history, sport, theatre, ....
This exchange will be a chance to learn about he french way of life (I promise not to offer you snails, oysters, or thighs of frogs if you do not want them !)
We have a lot to share with you depending on what you like to do !
We are launching on this site to propose you to welcome you to us for a short or medium duration, to let you discover our beautiful French gastronomy including our wines, and discovery of our region against:
- Essentially your time to speak English / American with our eldest daughter Justine, help her progress before her European high school entrance in 9 months, teach our twins the basics English and talk with us, adults, also in English.
- Apart from that, a helping hand on gardening would be highly appreciated ! Our hyperactive life deprives us of time to make it a beautiful corner of paradise ! And a quick daily help for the maintenance of the house you will be asked.
We hope you will come and discover us : our family and our french region ! Don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
