  • Description


    We are family of 5: Thomas, Masha and 3 boys: Alexandre (7y.o.), Nicolas (5y.o.) and Valentin (2 y.o.), living in the French Alps, in a small place called Lumbin, between Grenoble and Chambéry.

    Thomas works quite a lot and Masha stays home with boys who are homeschooled.
    We will use your help to take care of the kids (playing, crafting, speaking english (or russian or another one!) with them, telling them about your countries...), cleaning the house and driving forward our many house/garden improvement dreams, depending on your skills and tastes.
    We love outdoor activities. Hiking, skiing, you can even paragliding nearby. Thomas (and the boys!) loves fishing.
    Our place is great to discover if you love mountains and nature.
    We have a big garden with chickens and swimming pool.
    Masha is vegetarian, Thomas and the kids like meat!
    Welcoming workawayers is a way for us to keep exposing our kids to foreign languages cultures (Masha is Russian, Thomas is French, we have lived abroad before in Italy, US and Hong Kong), free Masha some time and drive forward various home improvement.
    We will love to offer in return a loving ambiance, interaction with kids, sharing of our week end outdoor plans, good French food :), private room and bathroom, wifi...
    We have two cars and two bikes so you can borrow some.
    We would welcome either single persons, couples with or without kids. Preferably non smokers.
