  • Description


    The family :
    Hi, I'm Annie. I'm a teacher and founder of a cultural association in a village near Bordeaux.
    I have twin girls,11 years old. (UPDATED 2022))
    On holidays and week-ends I enjoy socializing, eating outside, listening to music, going to the cinema, cultural exchanges... I speak french, english and spanish.
    Our area is called "Entre deux mers" and it's famous for its vinyards. From our place you can easily get to the busy Bordeaux (30 min by car) and its cafés, theatres, shops... or to the seaside (1 hour drive to Arcachon, Biscarosse, Dune du Pila...) Famous wine properties and medieval places can be visited around our place.
    We are conveniently-situated on a bus route to Bordeaux. There's also a train station nearby. The local shops, and a the lovely outdoor market are only 5 minutes walk.
    I am really enthusiastic about meeting people from abroad and I expect it to be a great experience for my daughters .

    The association :
    The association was created to promote language learning at any age. We help people in practising foreign languages and French for foreigners.

    UPDATE 02/2022 : since the pandemic the association doesn't provide english workshops anymore. There might be a language café while you stay with us though.

    Staying with a french family and a language teacher is one of the best way to improve your French speaking skills.

  • Help


    There's always a lot to do in a house especially when you are a single parent.
    So I am looking for someone who can help around the house and speak english with us. Gardening, cooking, maybe some light diy such as painting... would be great !
    The help in total won't be more than 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    UPDATE : there aren't any workshops at the moment. Maybe next school year.

    If you are interested in volunteering for the association :
    You could help with the english workshops . You will read stories, play games, sing... with kids (5-10 years old). Previous experience in teaching and/or working with children is required although we provide training.

    What else ...

    The village is rather quiet but it gets animated every saturday for the market. There's a arthouse cinema, a lovely bookshop and not far away a nice library. Our area is also known for its medieval buildings and the beaches on the Atlantic coast. There are many places to visit and I'd be happy to help you if you need it.
