    We're a very international family and we speak seven languages. In fact, one of us is a trained linguist and could even help to improve your English, French, German, Italian, Polish or Russian, to name a few. Our guests come from all over the world as well, so you will have a unique opportunity to engage with the widest variety of people and cultures.

    Did we mention the beach? We're just 5 minutes drive away from one of Northern France's most beautiful beaches in Deauville.

    The pace of life is fairly relaxed here and you would mostly be occupied with basic housework and caring. This means you'd have some time to yourself to read, write, have interesting discussions with diverse people or explore the local area.

  • Help


    We're a small, warm and friendly, international household. We're originally from Canada, but have lived all over the world and speak several languages at home. We run a small B&B with just two rooms. As we're in the gorgeous French countryside and only minutes from the beach, we attract relaxed and friendly holidaymakers from Europe and beyond.

    We're looking for someone to join us and help out with basic, day-to-day things like cleaning the rooms, doing laundry and preparing breakfast, as well as shopping and providing support to an elderly gentleman. He is 80 years old and had a stroke a few years ago, so has limited mobility.

    The chores take place at variable times during the day, which would mean that you can spend your free time making the most of this exceptional setting, surrounded by apple orchards and panoramic views.

    There are just two people at the house at the moment, my mother and my father, who is now a bit too old to help out, so it would be great to have someone to give us a hand when we need it. This would mean providing daily companionship and helping out my father as well as trips to the supermarkets and the odd spot of gardening too, as we have wild flowers and apple trees in our garden.

    We are really looking forward to talking you if you'd be interested in joining us. We've hosted a a variety of workawayers now and have had great experiences, so we hope to be able to welcome you in our home.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate couples.

  • Accommodation


    You'd have your own room with a shared bathroom and would be provided with three meals per day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner would be together with the hosts and we cook a wide range of different food - from traditional French to more international cuisine as well.

    In addition to full room and board, you would be paid a monthly salary, which we can negotiate together.

    The house is large and the rooms are a generous size. We are also in a quiet area with just a handful of neighbours, so it's perfect for those who would like a bit of peace and quiet but also enjoy being close to an exciting and beautiful beach resort. We have large gardens and lush green countryside around the house, so it's also great for those who like to spend time outdoors.
