A VOLUNTEER IS COMING NEXT SUMMER, BUT WE HAVEN'T ANYONE FOR AUTUMN HOLIDAYS (FROM 17TH OCTOBER TO 2ND NOVEMBER 2015) AND CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS (FROM 19TH DECEMBER TO 4TH JANUARY 2016) YET.
Enjoy a cultural and language immersion in my family in the South of French Brittany, We are a family composed of 5 people.Our two daughters are 13 and almost 8, and our son is almost 3.
We live in a small town called Saint Herblain, just next to Nantes (15 mn), the capital city of Brittany.Come and discover Nantes, which has a historical and a cultural interest, and which is active thanks to its universities.
You will also be able to visit Angers or Rennes (1 hour ), Paris (2 hours 1/2 by train), and discover the whole country thanks to the airport situated next to Nantes.
If you feel like having a quiet moment, you will have many opportunities to hike around Nantes, or to reach the seaside to enjoy La Baule, Pornichet, or Pornic (1 hour).We offer lots of free time to get to know our area !
However we are used to do home exchange so your stay with us may be in a different French area, or even in a different country, like this summer for instance.
Dates and details to be worked out together
Babysitting and creative play

For instance, a volunteer called Rob will come next summer. His stay will take place from 19th July to 27th August 2015 :
-FROM 23RD JULY TO 9TH AUGUST 2015 : We are used to do home exchange so your stay with us may be in a different French area, or even in a different country.For instance a home exchange is planned in North West Spain at this time. Rob will help for baby-sitting most of the time, but also sometimes share with us the tasks of cooking, clearing up, and cleaning.We need someone reliable and active, who can look after our children and entertain them with outdoor activities.
FROM OUR COMING BACK FROM SPAIN (9th August) TO 27TH AUGUST 2015 : Back home with Rob.He will share painting tasks with us in the garden.He will also help our children to improve their English.Besides he will help for baby-sitting sometimes.
During his cultural and lInguistic immersion, we will help Rob to improve his French to give him the opportunity to be ready for his exams in September.

We offer the same accomodation when the workawayer comes with us to a home exchange : a private bedroom and two bathrooms in the house/flat.
