  • Description


    Hello! I'm French, my husband is Dutch and we live in Brussels. We have a 2 daughters (5 years old and 8 months) and we would like them to meet people from different backgrounds and origins early in their lives. I lived in Germany and in the US and my husband in France and in the Netherlands.

    The workaway offer is not in Belgium but in the South of France, near Carcassonne ( ca. 15km away) in a family farm- the best way to discover the surrounding is to have a car/ moto. But we'll drive you to the station or the villages around on your free days otherwise : Carcassonne, Toulouse...

    The workaway would live with us in the main house or in a private studio (not decided yet but both are equally comfortable), workaways would live with us but also be able to be on their own when needed- the place is big .

    We would share a meal/day, probably dinner ( we provide food for the other meals ) and of course we would discuss with a cup of coffee in the morning of what they could do or visit!

    I created a student organisation-Parismus- to welcome foreign students at my university… Discovering a culture and letting people discover France is something I enjoy !

    It's a family house near Carcassonne, Aude. The place is wonderful, it's in the middle of the fields, in the nature and we have a small lake where we go swimming. It used to be a farm but it has been completely renovated .

    We would like some help to look after the kids (Iris 5 and Daphnée 8 months old) so that the parents can have a few hours to really feel like it's vacation.

    The idea is : you stay at our place, you have of course a private room - fully equipped, a bathroom - we will take care of the kids half a day and you would take care of them in the afternoon or the reversal depending on what's planned. You would share the family life, so you would also help around to prepare meals and clean the place a bit.

    The rest of the day you're free to enjoy the place! we accept 1 or 2 people but from my experience, it's better to be 2 in order to feel like you're on holidays with a friend on your free time... Last time we had two wonderful German girls ;-) and they enjoyed the place a lot!

    Minimum one week- from August 5 to 14th 2022 Let me know if you're interested!

    What else ...

    My father's family lived there for many generations. During your free time you can go take a walk, chill under the sun, take a bath in the lake, and during the week-end go visit Carcassonne or even go to Toulouse. 2 years ago, the 2 workaway girls went to Toulouse on a day trip... there is also a very cute village called Montolieu 5 km away.

    It's located in the middle of the fields... we would drive you to some places if needed but if you want to visit the area it would be more convenient to have your own car.

    Also, there is a dog. Nice, sweet and young.
