Hello, we are a family of four. We have two boys, 12 and 10 years old. We live on a farm in the middle of France, two hours by car under Paris. We have 140 dairy cows, two dogs and a few cats, geese and one goat Caramel. We also have a little "gîte" on the farm which in summertime is very often rented.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
You will take part of our family, which is a mixed one...influences from the Netherlands, Belgium and France...
You can learn how a modern family farm is working...and I think a lot more...
We would like to have some help with cleaning up the house, helping with the children when needed, there is work in the garden, you can help taking care of our animals but that is not necessary.
We are renovating the house ....so if you have some painting skills or experience in anyway you are very welcome :)
We speak french, dutch and english
It depends on if we have family visiting, or guests, but you always have at least a private room for yourself.
Sometimes you can be asked to sleep in a caravane, who is placed near the house and otherwise you can dispose of a little house, we often rent. But meals can always be taken with the family!
Bourges has a long tradition of art and history. Apart from the stunning cathedral, other sites of importance include the 15th-century Palace of Jacques Cœur and a sixty-five-hectare district of half-timbered houses and fine town-houses. Paris is only two hours away from our village. There is a lot of woods around, you can hike, fish, cycle and lots of things in a calm environment.
