    Description

    Hello travellers and helpers !

    We are a family of 7, with 5 children (15 to 21, 3 of them studying in an other places). We live on a little hamlet on the countryside, 10' far from Dijon. There are 3 houses : our and 2 others used as "gîte" (guest houses). We do a lot by ourselves and some help is always very appreciated. There are many different things to do like : wood fences, painting, gardening, house renovation, animal care, ... Or anything else you would master and being useful for us (website creation/management). 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 the guest room in our house and perhaps sometimes you'll have to switch to another one. If preferred, you can sleep in an independent house.

    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.
