  • Description


    We are Fred (french, 40), Kim (dutch, 44) and our four children Mayi (12), Leo (10), Woody (6.5) and Frida (4.5). We are living in the Ariège, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, in a rented house settled in 47ha of organically grown land.
    Amazing views on the mountains ! A very rich social network with many alternative people living around us.
    Our main help is to take care of these kids so help with them would be very much appreciated, especially if you have some special skills or talents that they can learn from.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    travellers will benefit from being with an unconventional family, where spirited children will run free and are curious, our ways are not dictated by time, we go with the flow....sometimes its peaceful most of the time quite chaotic...you will learn about being present in the now, how to be flexible, creative and navigate whatever presents its self in our daily lives. We have a lively community around us, with many more children, beautiful nature, and very colourful local markets...
