  • Description


    Hi there,

    We are a French-Taiwanese bilingual family with 2 children. French and mandarin are the languages most spoken at home, but we speak English and Spanish as well. Our daughter is 9 years old who is an English beginner, she starts to learn writing mandarin but very fluent for listening and speaking. As for our son, 6 years-old, he speaks both French and mandarin.

    We love cooking and healthy food. We try to produce our organic vegetables in the garden.
    We have a chicken coop with 6 hens and some frogs and fishes in a pong.
    We are vegan friendly, but sometimes we have meat as well.
    Our life is without tv but sometimes we will have home cinema with the video-projector.

    We moved into our own house in 2020, which has a nice location, near the big city and also close to woods and lacs.
    Since then, we started our house improvements project and a lot of help is needed, for everything concerned:
    cooking, cleaning, taking care of our children, gardening, wooding, working on the house improvements..

    You might have light work one day and heavy work another day; it depends.
    About 20 working hours per week are expected. You will surely have free time to visit around (Carcassonne or Barcelona..)

    We can receive two people at a time, but you have to share the double bed.

    Looking forward to seeing you!
