    Description

    Hello travellers and helpers !

    We are a family of 7, with 5 children (18 to 25, studying in other places). We live on a little hamlet on the countryside, 10' far from Dijon. There are 3 houses : ours and 2 others used as "gîtes" (guest houses). We do a lot by ourselves and some help is always very appreciated. There are many different things to do like : fruits picking, painting, gardening and watering, house renovation, animal care, ... Or anything else you would master and being useful for us. Most time, we'll work with you, explaining the way to begin with if needed.

    You will be part of the family. Our five children have spent 6 month exchanges abroad (Germany / US / Spain / Canada). You'll have your one room in our an independant house and perhaps sometimes you'll have to switch to another one.

    4 to 5 work hours / 5 days a week are fine for us if you can be flexible, depending upon our own schedules.

    You'll be able to use a bike to visit the village and surroundings and the train will take you to Dijon in 12 mn.
