  • Description

    Description

    We are a colocation between 2 and 4 persons in a house with garden in Paris. The list of members evolves during the year around pascal and generally young students or workers who rent rooms for a short or long period.
    There is also a dog who need attention and love.
    As it’s a house with garden, you can help in all the type of job but no baby sitting (even if the dog is like a baby) or help for Elders persons (not yet ;)
    Whether sunshine is sparkling on the café terraces of Boulevard Saint-Germain or melancholy mists of the Seine River are shrouding Notre-Dame Cathedral, the magical ambience of Paris has a way of romancing visitors. This incomparable city is filled with grandiose monuments like the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Panthéon. Yet the charm of Paris lies in the small details: the quaint cobblestone streets, perfectly manicured trees, dainty tea salons, Belle Epoque brasseries, and avant-garde art galleries. Like a veritable open-air museum, the city's buildings are works of art, and the Parisians' everyday fashion is worthy of a magazine spread.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We were used to host travelers. And to be host when I traveled with or without my children. But now I want to experiment other approaches because Couchsurfing *spirit* evolve and there are too many *freeloaders* without real cultural exchange. Then workaway seems to be a good alternative.
    Then you will live in a nice area a Parisian and French life with many cultural and touristic activities.
