    Come and live in the beautiful Swiss countryside and help us in our lovely new home in Courtételle, Switzerland. You can help us with our home (houseworks, cooking, children) or if you are a art designer or painter to paint our caravan (who will be a children hut).

    We are a family with two children (Colin, 5 years old & Lou, 2 year old). Pascal is a feldenkrais praticioner and stage director. Aline is a massotherapist and social worker.

    We speak French together and Pascal speak Swiss German with the children. We both understand English and Spanish, too.

    We are looking for somebody who wants to help us with the kids (1 half days/week), cleaning the house, folding the laundry, cooking, shopping, etc. Or with the caravan.

    We offer accommodation, food, advises to visit Switzerland. We have a car and WE Can maybe lend you if you need to go in a place. And WE are a nice family :-)
