    Edit winter 2024 :
    Hi workawayers !

    from june 12th until july 2nd : dog, horse and house sitting

    When we don't need house sitting we would love some help chopping and moving fire wood + to make a shed for the fire wood and moving on wuth rznovationg our home. All skills related to building, laying tiles, painying, plastering, basic electrics, painting etc are very welcome!

    We are a family of 5 with an 12 year old son and 10 and 7 year old daughters. We moved in 2022 to the gorgeous Bordeaux countryside. Our house is 500 years old and the outdoor spaces are absolutely huge and beautiful with very old trees. We want to grow a food forest. We have horses, sheep, a chick and 2 very friendly and well educated shepard dogs. We are into vegetarian cooking (we are not really vegetarian but we enjoy it more) , meditation, yoga, permaculture, sustainability... Appart from the occasional dancing underneath the stars around the camp fire, we go to bed early and wake up early too. The sunrise cup of coffee after yoga is my favorite🥰.

    Our workawayers are part of the family so we expect them to also take part in the daily things we do to keep the house running like grabbing a sponge or a broom when necessary, washing dishes, keeping the fire on or lighting it up in the morning etc...
