    Description

    We are a small family of three, easygoing and happy.
    I am Julie, I am 37 years old, my partner is Thomas, he is 47 years old and we have a lovely little boy, Edgar, who will be 2 years old in August.
    We're living in the old city center of the pretty village of Aramon very close to Avignon (15 kms / 9 miles)
    The Festival d’Avignon is one of the most important contemporary performing arts events in the world. Every year in July, Avignon becomes a city-theater.
    We are both working at the festival in July and we will need help to take care of Edgar. He will be all week day long at his nanny's place. We're looking for someone to take care of him from 18:30 (6:30 pm), have fun with him, tell stories, take a walk, let him have his dinner and put him in bed around 20:30 / 21:00. After that, you will have your evening, but of course at home just in case he wake up... We will be back from work between 10pm and 4am, depends of the days...
    You will not do 7 days a week but we don't have yet our schedules for the period.
    We are looking for someone from 26 june to 27 july. The job will really start on the 28 of June, that leaves us two days to get to know each other, see how things works, discover the house and the village.

    Edgar is a very smiling little boy. You will have a lot of fun sharing time with him.

    This is the first time we will use workaway to host someone but I've been a workawayer in San Francisco (USA) in 2017. I've been there two weeks, mostly doing painting work.
    I'm happy now to have the opportunity to host someone at home !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will enjoy living with a french family, discover the first words of our baby (now he says mama, dad and poop !) Maybe his vocabulary will be a little more sofisticated in July.
    You will have the opportunity to enjoy the festival during the day (there is habitually more than 1400 shows a day), maybe just a little less this year with the covid...
    You will also enjoy the good summer weather of south of France !
