    Description

    Come and enjoy the culture mix at the French-German border. We're right in the middle of Europe next to lovely Saarbrücken, between Luxembourg, Metz, Strasbourg, Trier and Frankfurt. We are a German/Mexican-American couple who has recently moved from the US to Germany/France. The summers we normally spent in our house in the Pyrenees (for which we also have a workaway profile).
    We have two lovely 4 year old dogs, Galan & Roco.
    PLEASE: ONLY VACCINATED!!

    We can offer German, English and Spanish conversations and some teaching. As we are right at the border you will have the chance to experience the German as well as the French culture. The UNESCO World Heritage sides 'Völklingen Steelworks', Trier and Nancy or Strasbourg are very close by and easily reached by train. Even Paris is only a 2 hour train ride away! Saarbrücken itself is influenced by French culture and cuisine while keeping it's German traditions as well.

    Currently we need specific help for July and from October for general gardening, some smaller building projects and to built a 50 Meter fence in the backyard. So a little more specific than the usual general household help.
