  • Description


    Hi! We are a couple Martine (61 ) and Jean-Paul (67)' and we have 4 children between 31 and 40 years old, but they aren't living with us anymore. We are horticulturist and we have a big place around the house with some trees, fruit trees, plants, flowers, and a garden with vegetable, and we need help to take care of all. We would like also some help to paint our house.

    If you want to stay more than a few days, if you want we can go to our "little house" in the mountain of Nax, who is situated in le canton du Valais in Switzerland. We have a little of work to do there!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    So you can learn to live with swiss people, in a typical village, and also to learn about the nature, and how to take care of the nature, of the garden and the flowers, because we are horticulturist. (We have our firm next to our house.) We don't speak English, but only French, and a little of german. Our children speak English, German and Spanish, maybe they can help us to understand each other when needed! ;-) we knows some words in English, it could be interesting to learn a little bit!

  • Help


    We are looking for some help in the garden, or to cut the grass, to prune the trees, to paint the house, to go for a walk with the dog if you want, maybe we need some help in our house, like washing or tidy, and if you stay some days, we can go to the mountain in our little house to take care of this place also, like painting or making some garden. (If you want to).

    What else ...

    We live in a small village in the canton of Vaud, near the town of Vevey, Lausanne and Fribourg. From our House you can take the train (5 minutes) go to these towns (they are 20 minutes by train or car), or if you prefer to stay on the campaign, you can go for a short or long walk around, there are plenty of men to go! If you have a bike too, there are many ways to roll! Last year, we had several workaway and it was a great experience, all these young people with whom we spent good times to laugh and to work in a good mood. One of our daughters was an accomplice to the South of Latin America, and it was something unforgettable for her, so we hope it will be the same chosen here! For many years, we had a lot of students from the Switzerland German, there is each pour learn the French, it's like a habit for us to have someone in our House! :-)
