We are Joaquin(argentinan, 22), Tati (English, 23) and Marina (French, 25), three flatmates living in a beautiful chalet at Chamonix. We've decided now, to create a new vegetable garden at home and that's why, we are currently looking forward to host somebody. It's a very firendly and chill enviroment, surrounded by nature and close to town.
We are hoping that somebody can help us mostly, with basic day to day tasks, such as gardening, cooking, cleaning, etc. All activities are made together and the most important for us, is to have a fun and peacefull coexistence.
We are available to host someone new from October!
Is a very cosmolitan house, we exchange different languages, types of cooking and all kind of knowledges.
I'm for example a chef, Marina is a Life coach and future mountain guide, and Tati is a very atistic person.
We have all grown in diferent places, we've all had different experiences in owr lifetimes, so we all bring into the table diferent point of views and opinions. Always in a friendly enviroment.
There are not big expectations about the help. Just an extra pair of hands, and someone to have a good time with while helping.
The most of the workaway time will be used for gardening (water plants, cut weeds, create new vegetable gardens, etc).
If there is not much to do in the garden, we could use some of the time cooking, walking the dog, maintenance of the jacuzzi, etc.
There is not a fixed schedule at the moment.
This host offers a language exchange
Not obligatory, but is always nice to learn languages. I talk native spanish and fluent english. I would say my french level is medium. At home, we usually speak french or english.
Room with views of the mountain, balcony and private bathroom. The fridge is always full at home, so workawayers are free to have whatever they want from the kitchen. There's also a shopping list in the door of the fridge, where we are all free to write down whatever we want to buy (also workawayers). So, once the list is completed, some of us go to the shops, sometimes we go together, sometimes we take it in turns. It might be, maybe once a week a task for workawayers.
Chamonix is a town with plenty of activities, in summer, for example, rock climbing, mountain bike, paragliding or just walking in the beautifull woods. Is a very friendly town, lots of turists come every year, so you can always meet new people from around the world. We are just an hour away from Geneva (Swisterland) which is very handy. There are plenty of lovely little mountain towns in the area. If you've never been here, definitely worth it giving it a try.
I play football, ping pong, tennis, and go to the gym. Sports is a strong point of this town, you can find a nice groupto do almost every sport that you can imagine,
