Routine is definitely not part of our day to day life! I run my own company from home while Jean-Philippe can be called to work as firefighter or paramedic at anytime, 24/7. This didn’t prevent us to found our family : we now have three little ones to share with our curiosity and love of life.
Bromont is very well located : it is one hour by car or by bus from Montréal and Sherbrooke. If you enjoy nature, bike, horseback riding or running, you’ll like the access to more than 100km of multifunctional trails right from our place. There is always something to do nearby : paddle board, water slides, mountain bike, golf, spa, many free music shows and much more!
If you can drive (or if you really enjoy bike!), you have access within 30 km to the Granby Zoo, the wine road, outdoor cinema, ect.
We have no pets and are non smokers. We enjoy improvised parties with our friends and their kids; we are very inclusive.
Good to know: our mother tongue is French, so our daily life is in this language.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We already welcomed travelers from France, Belgium, Italy, Australia and United States and what they liked the most was how we included them in our day to day life, inviting them to join us to eat, to get out on special activities, introducing them to other of our friends, help them to visit our place as locals do, ect.
We visited many countries such as France, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, Guatemala, Brasil, Thaïland, Vietnam.
We are generous of our time and tips and curious about other cultures.
It can only be rewarding!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
As I work from home, I am present, but I really need to focus few hours a day and to do so, I appreciate help to take care of the kids. You definitely must have experience in this area!
Your help would also be useful to carry the childrens to their activities, so you need to have a valid driver license. In addition, because we have a swimming pool, you must know how to swim : )
Your help would also be appreciated to prepare diners, and sometime to garden, and household, such as to fill and empty the dishwasher, to vacuum, to wash the sheets, ect.
As a bonus, if we could talk in English or Spanish it would be great! : D
We have a very private bedroom downstairs with plenty of natural light in the morning (the window is oriented to the East).
Accomodation includes a queensize bed and a lot of storage for your belongings and free wi-fi.
In our backyard, we have a swimming pool, hammocks, a fireplace and woods.
We can share our bike and camping equipment.
You would have access to the kitchen and to all the ingredients required to cook your own meals when you want or to share ours. Your participation to the food selection by adding stuff you would like to eat to the cart will be welcomed.
