  • Description


    I live in a beautiful house with swimming pool, tennis court and horses. The village called Monségur is a place where many people make music or are artists. In spite of the pandemic, we manage to keep practicing. The village is the last one in Gironde. We are very close to the Lot et Garonne and the Dordogne. Bordeaux is 40 minutes away by train and the train station is 15 minutes away by car. The ocean is at 1h45, the Pyrenees at 2h.
    My family consists of three children aged 24, 21 and 9. My last son lives at home. My oldest daughter lives in Paris and my oldest son lives in Bordeaux.
    We all play music and we love to take care of our horses, cat and dog, but also to go hiking or skiing in the mountains, to walk in the countryside...
    Our dog is very kind with people, but she hates other animals.. this is why it's impossible to come with a pet (so sorry!)
    My younger son, goes to school, plays drums, and does acrobatics on horseback. I'm a researcher in the humanities, I recently started playing the double bass and I love it.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have varied cultural activities and are very curious. Our most regular activities are music and horse riding. There will also be opportunities to go to the ocean or to the mountains according to your desires.
    I would like to welcome people, share moments, exchange on what everyone likes and make people discover all that I can of the beautiful countryside where I live, the historical villages around and Bordeaux which is a very beautiful city.

    We will also be able to share theoretical knowledge in management and occupational health, but this is not mandatory :)

  • Help


    I need help to have someone take care of my son in the morning and in the evening when I leave early and come home late. I would also like help with painting and crafts. I just moved into this very nice house but I would like to redecorate it. The horses need a little care. And then, with the arrival of spring there will also be things to do in the garden.
    I would love to learn to speak Spanish properly and perfect my English.
    In short, a lot to share. The only imperative things will be to take care of my son when I am not able to. For the rest, everyone will do what they know how to do best and what they prefer
