  • Description


    Hi! We are a couple Martine (62) and Jean-Paul (68)' and we have 4 children between 32 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.

    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!

    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. We knows some words in English, it could be interesting to learn a little bit!

    We are looking for some help in the garden, to cut the grass, to prune the trees, some chores around the house and to go for a walk with the dog if you want. If you stay some days, we can go to the mountain in our little house to take care of this place aswell. like painting or some other sponanious tasks. (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 walks, there are plenty of hikes around! 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. For many years, we had a lot of students from German Switzerland, they were interested in learning French, it's like a costum for us to have someone in our House! :-)
