  • Description


    Dear Workawayer!

    You are in a french sportive alpine and loving family of one teen and one kid (Nils 16 and Tess 5 years old) and a gentle and affectionate indoor/outdoor cat.

    We are located in the French Alpes, in the heart of the Vercors mountains where is situated the largest natural reserve in France. We live in the charming village and ski resort of Villard de Lans.

    We are looking for a young lady (20+, non-smoker) to help look after our daughter 3-4 hours per day (mostly in the evenings). You will share our family life, play with our daughter, sometines babysitting and speak english with her. We want to introduce our children to another langage than french, open them to an other culture. (Must be English native speaker as we would like you to help her to improve her English.)

    Accessible in few minutes, the ski resort reveals great nordic and downhill ski slopes and magnificent views of the mountains. Our chalet is at walking distance to the center of the village.

    You will be able to go hiking/mountain biking right from our place as well as enjoy the several activities of the cute downtown (no car needed). We love nature, enjoy hiking, mountain biking, trail running, skiing and cooking delicious French food. If you are up to, we will be happy to share our meals and outdoor hobbies with you.

    (The village is 45 minutes from the larger city of Grenoble and and 55 minutes from Valence and 1hour15 from Lyon.)

    We live in a spacious chalet with a large terrace and a nice garden, mountain views and there is also a skateboarding mini-ramp down our garden. 😉. You will have your own bedroom (22m2) and will share a bathroom with Nils and Tess. If you are up to, we will be happy to share our meals and outdoor hobbies with you.

    We are very looking forward to welcoming you in our family.
    Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any question.
    Hope to talk and to welcome you soon!

    Stéphanie and Romuald
