  • Description


    We are a small family living in a nice area of Bordeaux. 2 sons but only one (12) lives at home. We love to meet new people from other countries. During spring and summer, the house and our new little garden are more open also to friends neighbours and visitors. I move quite a lot for my work so sometimes I need some people to babysit, speak english, do homeworks (not his favorite activity ....). The guy is nice, creative, may be really funny but he needs a frame so I'd rather have people with good teen experience :-) and for 1 month would be great. I 'm also happy to have a helping hand for the garden or the house. The job is not much when I'm home and you may have quite a lot of free time but if I'm away from home then it's more intensive even if my son goes to school 4 days a week.
    We live with 3 adorable cats....

  • Help


    "Baby-sitting" of my 12 yrs old son, help in the house and garden, feeding cats and clearing the cat litters when I'mn not home. Helping hand in the garden and at home when I'm home. I'm dynamic until "speed" as we say in good french, so people who hang around asking what they should do may find it a bit rough sometimes :-) But I promise I can chill when everything is done or when friends are around.

  • Accommodation


    individual room with individual bed, shared kitchen, bathroom and toilets. The house is very well situated, tramway is 3 minutes walking, buses also and we have a station of shared bikes (VCub) 5 minutes walking. All shops around and a nice area very similar to a village. It is called bordeaux st-augustin. We try to eat mostly organic (but are able to order a pizza sometimes) and will be happy to cook or let you cook if you feel like to. I'm quite maniac to find my stuff at the right place after somebody else cooked but this is it I think :-D

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I'm working at home and have pretty many things to do so I'm not always available but welcoming foreign people is one thing we love to do. I speak spanish, german, english, some bits of portuguese and italian if I'm drunk.... I expect you to be respectful to my family and friends. You will be quite independant and I will do my best to help you visiting and discovering the area... Please ensure that you have no pets allergy :-)
