  • Description


    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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 :)
