We are a family of five that really enjoy hosting friendly, fun, outgoing travellers :)
We live in a small town located in the middle of France. We are located 3 hours south of Paris in the Town of Limoise. It's a beautiful countryside very quiet. With my husband we have a lot of work to do outside and now our children are "old" (21; 20 and 18) so they aren't often in the house to help us. My last sohn is going to Canada during the summer and he gave me the idea to be host. I really enjoy the concept of workaway and I hope you will have a nice experience with us !

Help in the house
My husband is a farmer and you will have the possibility to discover the farm. We have cows, pigs and cereals fields.
There is also beautiful path if you enjoy running and cycling. We can lend you bike.
We like to eat together. You will discover traditionnal french food. We appreciate in particular cheese and meat.
There is also some museum, an old fortified castle, one of the most beautiful oak forest of the world.
During the week I need help in the house (domestic chores : wash glass, wash shutter, vacuum...) ; cut the wither flowers and during the summer water the plant. We also have a swimming pool, so you could enjoy it and sometimes we must wash deckchair and the floor.
If you like painting and DIY there is also a lot to do.
If you are a good horse rider we have a thoroughbred mare. But be carefull you need to have experience with horse!
We have a cat and a dog (a very old dog) so if you are allergic it's not the good place. Moreover we live in a very small town so you have to like quiet place. There isn't nightclub here.
The work will not exceed 5 hours per day and 5 day per week. If there is an exceptionnal day with 6 or 7 hours of work you will have less work to do days after.
