We (50 years old) live in a 2.5 acres old and quiet country house near Saint Emilion / Bordeaux in France where we moved in 2021. We are all (parent and childrens) working far, Paris and Europe. And usually come back on the week-end. We want to rehabilitate this house (inside and outside) which deserve it! And also have some help in our day to day life. The helpers are warmly welcome in a confortable private suite, alone or by pairs (friends, couples, etc). The meals are taken in charge but should mostly be made and taken by your own. You are mostly alone a part of the week. Driving license is mandatory. A car can be provided, fuel included.
We speak french, english and spanish.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
As we are not really present on the site the cultural exchange is limited. We usually try to have at least 1 meal together per week. Our workaway is more dedicated to autonomous people who likes to discover countries & lands by their own. Sometime we are at home for holidays and can provide richer exchanges when expected :)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are welcoming mostly 3 types of workawayers :
- lumberjacks & gardeners to improve and maintain lands and woods
- housekeapers and cookers to keep the house cleaned, organized, doing the shopping and preparing some meals when one of us is here
- plumbers, electricians, masons to help small maintaining tasks in bathrooms, kitchen, living room, etc
Ideally the minimum stay duration is one month.
