    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a multicultural family, lived in 4 continents living in a beautiful area of France. Come and enjoy the view from our terrace in the morning watching the sunrise behind the Viaduct. The train station is 5 minutes walk away that can take you to Cannes, Nice, Ventimiglia, Marseille or even to Paris. There's a bus stop in front of the house.

    I speak , English, French, Spanish, Tagalog and a little German and Thai.

    I backpacked the world when I was younger and would be able to exchange some travel experiences as well as some tips for visiting the area around us. Share the local French way in the eyes of an expat.

    We are hoping to be able to learn some DIY, gardening, minor renovation know how from out guests. We are of course hoping to keep discoverig new cultures through our guests and perhaps share a few meals together especially on the weekends.

    You are expected to help with and work for 4-5 hours / day and if you'd like to go on a day out of course you can and work out your hours o a different day.

    We both work from home and our meals are very basic during the week. You must provide or must bring your own food for your own use. . We can provide basics like coffee, oil, butter, pasta, rice, ,milk, seasonings etc.

    Water use is limited due to the area we live in.
    We do not have heating or airconditioning that functions.

    There could be mosquitoes in the summer,

    In the summer it gets really hot so every work cannot be done under the shade so you must adjust your working time if necessary.

    There is no nightlife around this little bay except in the summer.

    The summer is a very busy time so please ask if theres a space if youre a last minute workawayer.
