  • Description


    Nous sommes une famille allemande qui habite dans les Pyrénées Françaises (Ariège): Eva (43), Volker(44), Toni (9), Peppi (7), Mavi (3) et notre chiot Tjappo (5 mois). Nous sommes sur un terrain au milieu du foret dans la montagne, sur 900 mètres d'altitude. Nous avons 2 cabanes en bois, une sera la tienne! L’endroit est magique, avec une vue splendide sur la montagne, accessible seulement à pied. Notre luxe, c’est l’eau de source, la silence et un fabuleuse ciel pleine d’étoiles.

    Nous cherchons un*e babysitter qui a le français pour langue maternelle pour apprendre le français en jouant à notre benjamine Mavi, qui parle pas encore la langue. Les deux grandes filles parlent le français couramment. Mais Mavi ne va pas à l’école, et alors elle n’est pas assez immersé dans la langue.

    Elle comprend déjà pas mal de français, et elle adore chanter, jouer au cache-cache, bricoler, sauter sur le trampolin - s'éclater avec toi. Le plus important c'est que vous deux vous amusez bien ensemble.

    On voudrait que tu t’occupes d’elle quelques heures le matin, et l’après-midi tu pourras faire autre chose pour te reposer ;-)

    On cherche quelqu’un*e dès possible, jusqu’à mi-avril. ( á voir peut-être meme au dela, si ca va trop bien avec tout le monde…)

    Si cet aventure te parle, écris nous! Et on discutera pour tous les détails. Je te promets que tu vas être utile, parce qu’on a vraiment besoin de toi.


    We are a German family living in the French Pyrenees (Ariège): Eva (43), Volker(44), Toni (9), Peppi (7), Mavi (3) and our puppy Tjappo (5 months). We are on land in the middle of the forest in the mountains, 900 meters above sea level. We have 2 wooden cabins, one will be yours! The place is magical, with a splendid view of the mountain, accessible only on foot. Our luxury is spring water, silence and a fabulous sky full of stars.

    We are looking for a babysitter whose mother tongue is French to learn French by playing our youngest Mavi, who does not speak the language yet. The two older daughters speak French fluently. But Mavi doesn't go to school, so she's not immersed enough in the language.

    She already understands a lot of French, and she loves to sing, play hide and seek, do crafts, jump on the trampoline - have fun with you. The most important thing is that you two have fun together.

    We would like you to take care of her for a few hours in the morning, and in the afternoon you can do something else to rest ;-)

    We are looking for someone as soon as possible, until mid-April. (to see perhaps even beyond, if it goes too well with everyone…)

    If this adventure speaks to you, write to us! And we will discuss for all the details. I promise you will be useful, because we really need you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn to survive among three loud children in the middle of nature, exposed to the powers of nature. We are still learning it ourselves. We start to get a glimps of what "down to earth" means. This is a great gift and an enormous challenge. We have no infrastructure except the one we created and create (with you). We welcome you to participate in this adventure. When you come here, you will share it anyway :-)

    We have some experience in Non Violent Communication and if you are interested, we will be happy to share this way of looking onto life with you.

    Actuellement nous cherchons un*e babysitter qui s'occupe de Mavi quand ses soeurs sont à l'école et nous travaillons. Il s'agit de quelques heures pendant la matinée, par exemple de 9 heures à 12 heures.

    Si tu as envie de cuisinier, c'est très appréciée! Aussi si ca te fait plaisir de travailler sur le terrain, il y a toujours des tâches de maintenance. On demande un peu d'aide autour des repas. Mais le plus important, c'est de passer du temps avec Mavi, pour qu'elle apprenne le français avec joie.


    Currently we are looking for a babysitter who takes care of Mavi when her sisters are at school and we are working. This is a few hours during the morning, for example from 9 am to 12 pm.

    If you want to cook, it's very appreciated! Also if it makes you happy to work in the field, there are always maintenance tasks. We ask for a little help around meals. But the most important thing is to spend time with Mavi, so that she learns French with joy.

  • Accommodation


    There are two possibilities: You can sleep in the mezzanine of a small wooden hut, with a large panorama window towards the valley. It's on our land, and you'll be very close to us.

    If you prefer a little more autonomy, you can also choose our truck. It is parked at the side of the road, 3 minutes walk through the woods. There you would have a big bed, a stove, a small kitchen of your own.


    Il y a deux possibilités: Tu peux ou dormir dans la mezzanine d'une petite cabane en bois, avec une grande fenetre panorama vers la vallée. C'est sur notre terrain, et tu sera très proche de nous.

    Si tu prefères un peu plus d'autonomie, tu peux aussi choisir notre camion. Il est garé au bord de la route, 3 minutes à pied au travers les bois. La tu aurais un grand lit, un poêle, une petite cuisine à toi.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are not accessible by public transport. On your arrival we pick you up in Saint Girons. If you want to move around in your free time, we can take you to some spots, or you can hitchhike, this works quite well here, everybody does it. And hiking trails are starting right on our doorstep. The landscape is breathtaking.

    We don't consider ourselves providing an infrastructure, but sharing it with you. So we want to share the responsability to maintain it as well.

    We suggest to consider the first 3 days as a trial-period to find out if it works for you and us. If it’s a fit, longterm stays are welcome. If it's a really good fit, you can move in with us ;-)
