  • Description


    We are running a surfschool in the Southwest of France. We offer SURF- , Stand Up Padlle-, Yoga- and Skatelessons.

    For our private life duringe the main season we need helping hands.

    We usually need help for vour family life (cooking, shopping, a little bit of household). In the evening we are eating together. This meal is prepared by our volunteers. We are a german/ french family. My husband and me, two youngsters (13 & 16 years old) and the mother of my husband. We like to eat healthy, (meat & vegetarian).

    Normally we have 2-3 volunteers working with us to make the shopping, preparing the dinner in the evening & a little bit of houshold tasks like washing the clothes, etc.

    We are living in a house with a big garden, 5km away from the beach and 3 km to the next village. Our volunteers are living in caravans in the garden and we are using our house together. We have simple bikes for you.

    The volunteers will have the opportunity to take free surf, SUP, skate- and yoga lessons (including the equipment). Contis Plage is a very nice, individual and sportive place. Our season begins in may and ends in the end oktober.
