    Description

    Hello !
    We are a French family of 4, Jeremie (36) Messalyne (37) Axel (10) and Calixte (4). We have a house on a large garden of 3000m ². We live in the countryside in a quiet town, 20 minutes from the beach by car.

    Messalyne was a part-time french teacher, Now she studies again about psychology.
    Jeremie works in a heating company, he like swimming and want to have more simple life.
    Axel goes to school and Calixte too. They like to go to school by bicycle when the weather is nice.

    We enjoy music, evenings with friends (aperitif, dinner), discover other cultures, and the simple joys of family life.
    Messalyne enjoy cooking and gardening, and Jeremie likes to eat but he also does sports and gardening! Axel likes to play, do sports, watch movies. Calixte like playing with little cars, to bike, share time with everyone like play!

    We are a family of 4 who try to begin a more ecologic and sustainable live. We decide to reduce waste (sorry for my english), we have a compost, we change our way of consuming : I (Messalyne, the mum) make a lot of things by myself like jam, compote, cake, and recently I started canning vegetables, soup. We have hens but our henhouse did not resist the last storm.

    With my husband Jeremie, we like share and discover different culture, way of thinking, way of living and cooking receipe to better understand the world.
    We try to teach to our childrens Axel and Calixte that the others are like us and not have a hasty judgment about people without knowing them.

    We are not a hostel, we are not an compagny only a simple family with a big garden, a family father who works a lot, we are short of time and sometimes our financial means are limited but we have the joy of living!

    We hope that our visitors can help us do what we do not have time to usually do such as garden maintenance, various repairs, or help out with what we do not know how to do, for example a garden in permaculture!

    We would like a vegetable garden in permaculture but we are short of time and experience. So we hope find helpers who can design and prepare the vegetable garden in permaculture.
    If you are interrested, let's contact us !

    If you want to learn French, discover culture and the french cook, live in a French family, you are welcome!
    We look forward to welcoming you.

    Help

    We need help in the garden, for a little tinkering, and to share family life. We want to practice English and / or Spanish, and let our childrens learn about other cultures, lifestyle, and cooking recipe!

    In the house we have paint, tiles and a bit of DIY to do. In the garden, there is maintenance of hedges, we would like to start a small terrace, create a barbecue area, clean stone walkways, full of little things that take time but provide the joys of contact with nature.

    We would like to create a "potager" with permaculture. So we are interest about someone who have some knowledges in this kind of culture. But others are welcome too!

    Daily "working" time will depend on daily tasks but will not exceed 4-5 hours per day and we will try to help you as much as we can ! Everyone works at their own pace and in a good mood. We are honest and respectful, we want to share these qualities with our visitors.
    We need helpers autonomous and adaptable. If you don’t like children and nature, this experience is not for you!
