You could learn and have help with English and French. Experience the magnificent countryside, relax enjoy the pool. Cook with us. Go on little trips and really enjoy the local culture.
Really we would love the volunteers to participate in our busy life/business in tourism. Looking after the kids at the pool. Bit of cleaning and gardening. Family life really.
We can offer camping. Or a double room with bathroom.
You will have access to bicycles. Also you can catch the bus to Dijon everyday. Here it is very much country living at a relaxed pace. However,we try to be organised and flexible. We have had au pairs and helpers in the past. It all worked out very well. It's a great area if you love nature,sunshine and fun outdoors. We often are very busy at the weekend. But we are always willing to help. We will always try when possible to eat homemade food together.
