  • Description


    There are 5 of us in our multicultural family. We used to travel with my husband for the professional purposes. Since 5 years we have settled in a little village near Bordeaux (France). We speak different languages and would like our 3 boys to do the same. We would like to spend our dinners together with a workawayer talking french, english or russian together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak french, English and Russian. Our kids learn a bit of English and Russian. If you are interested to learn French we can arrange lessons.
    We spend time between our children's hobies (music, rugby, theater), our hobies (sewing, jogging for me, playing music, surfing, tennis and kitesurfing for my husband) and work.
    We like spending time in the Pyrénées for hiking and skiing.
    Our village is quite small but there is either bus or train to Bordeaux. It takes 30 mn by train to be right in the center of the city. We live 250 meters from the railway station, , so you can move easily.
    Our region is one of the best to discover french food and wine. We are within the Graves area, not far from Pessac-Leognan and 45 minutes from Saint-Emilion.
    We are located 3 hours way from Spain and we like spending time in "Pays-Basque" and eat tapas in Spain ! At spring and summer time, we like spending week-ends on the coast (Oleron isalnd or Ré island) for biking, surfing and enjoying BBQ with friends.
