    Description

    For the summer, open for Workawayers looking to stay at least one month 🌴😎💐 Covid-wise, compared to a lot of cities in France, the situation is rather good here.

    ⛑️🛃Thanks for making sure you're allowed to enter France from where you are currently, some restrictions apply 😷...

    Mum doing workshops explaining tech (blockchain, AI...), and social activities, with two kids: lively, curious and gifted 12 and 9 years olds, sharing their flat with one or two female Workawayers.

    My kids DO NOT have to go to school, it's their choice 😃 So the intellectual interests and activities you do with them are important, it's not just babysitting. 👯‍♀️ My son is not going but preparing an exam by himself, plus diverse projects, and my girl is going to school and doing great, happily.

    With many experiences now, I can see that we enjoy connecting with warm, smiling, playful OR patiently loving, peaceful, calming personalities. It's really more than a job, it's about enjoying sharing with our family, and obviously we are unconventional peeps 😊

    You have a private room in our flat, shared with another Workawayer usually.
    You're welcome to arrange the room your way, invite nice friends over, go out day and night and organise weekends getaway to the ocean or Paris or wherever you'd like to go. My work schedule is flexible so I'll arrange for you to have the days you need to explore.

    We are very optimistic and experimental folks to be around, unconventional in many ways, interested in meeting different people from all over the world.

    I do speak fluent English. The kids now appreciate English speaking company as well, if you're creating interesting activities, but they're not fluent yet.

    Flexibility, light structure, curiosity and open-mindedness to expect - you bring yours and we'll have a new interesting mix! There is a lot of freedom here, you'll feel great if you like having autonomy and taking initiative.

    On the other hand, you might feel uncomfortable if you need me to tell you exactly what to do, how, when... this is important, please reflect on this.

    And... a large share of the housework will be on you... Putting things in order and cleaning up daily. Thanks in advance 😊

    If you are generous, adventurous and responsible, willing to discover new ideas and ways of life based on empathy, we are looking forward to meet you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Definitely we rock at helping you practice French! We are very open to conversations, so you get a lot of practice. We use very limited screentime.

    Plus I traveled quite a bit, so I can also give pointers on some places in the world, I'm an extensive reader and as a former personal growth professional, I'm curious about you and how I can help you to live an exciting, fulfilling, meaningful life.

    My kids are very loving and curious too. And if you're into startups, tech, innovation, we're gonna have a blast 😄

  • Help

    Help

    Creating projects and learning experiences and going outside with the kids and doing housework.

    I'd love someone who loves to cook healthy and care for our home - although all of that can be negotiated according to your own talents, skills and preferences.

    You'd have a lot of freedom to choose what to do 😁 But I do expect real, efficient, happy involvement both with the kids and with the house.

    Close to the city center in Nantes, the largest city in the west of France, a french tech city, innovative, welcoming, creative, multi-cultural and open, with lots of opportunities. Active cultural life, diversity. Ocean is under one hour drive away, Paris a couple hours in a TGV train.

    We do have a fibre wifi connection. You're welcome to work from home. Although it's a small flat. I feel more comfortable when Workawayers have an active life outside, discovering the city, making friends in person, or working also from nice co-working spaces or cafés when they'll reopen, or parks - open now.
