We’re a French-Japanese family recently living in the Provence, south of France (after living 5 years in japan).
Manosque is a beautiful small city close to lavande fields and the Verdon canyon, not far from Aix en Provence, Avignon, Marseille and even Nice and Monaco. This is also close to the French Alps - in 1h by car you can reach the nearest ski place and have fun in winter.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
I was born in Provence and would be glad to share our life style, culture and French language with you ! I can also speak English, German, Czech and a little Japanese.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
As my husband is still in Japan for few months I am looking for some Japanese speaking helper at home, mostly to speak Japanese with our kids while their Japanese dad is away.
Or I would be glad to welcome also a German speaking host which could speak German with me for improve my langage (I’m teaching few hours history geography in German and didn’t go to Germany for a quite long time as I was living in Japan). You could learn French in return by speaking and playing with my kids !
We don’t have a farm yet (we had an organic farm in Japan before we moved to France) but I already take care of an olive trees field, and we will harvest the olives in December for exemple…
