We are looking for someone who get involved in our family life and will be happy to share our simple daily life.
We look for somebody, spanish or english mother tong, who wants to spend time with our family, help us to improve foreign language and at home inside and outside. you will have to babysit the youngest (the one who is 13 isn't easy!) and cook alone one or two times a week.
We would PREFER if our workaways were OVER 23. We also have a preference for those who have lived away from home. Please do not apply unless you have experience in caring for children, cooking and general house work.
We are a family with 3 children (18, 13, 10), in the country, near Bordeaux. We spend a lot of time outside, gardennig (spring will be the season to plant and weed!!!), riding horses, walking.... Children are very curious, they move a lot: We like a lot of sports. Most of the time, we cook organics and local products, seasonal vegetables, and we'll cook together.
We have a dog, a cat, hens, ponies. My husband make wine in his family winnery.
We are open-minded and communicative, we like very much to discover others culture, food ... and children are very happy to receive everybody.
Months in yellow mean we're not free to welcome somebody the full month. Don't hesitate to send us a message to talk about that! and for your questions of course!

Here you will enjoy the quiet of the countryside, walks and family life. So you can improve your French, discovering our daily life, simple, respectful of its natural environment, with vegetable gardenning, often during spring and summer. We look forward to you our winemaker business. If you want to move, there are many medieval villages and other sights to visit. During the holidays, we like to do cultural visits or go to the ocean. And also thank you to discover, through your presence, the world :)
Like it said in workaway: We'll ask you to help 4/5 hour/day, so you'll have free time each day. We'll always cook and tidy after lunch together (even your days off if you are at home). You'll have 2 days free each week, and of course, the most important, you'll be here as a member of the family, you'll come in holidays with us, and during summer you can be free during few days if you want.
Ici, vous apprécierez le calme de la campagne, les ballades, et la vie de famille. Ainsi, vous pourrez perfectionner votre français, en découvrant notre vie quotidienne, simple, respectueuse de son environnement naturel. Nous serons ravis de vous faire découvrir notre métier de viticulteur. Si vous souhaitez bouger, il y a de nombreux villages médiévaux, et d'autres curiosités à visiter. Pendant les vacances, nous aimons faire des visites culturelles ou aller à l'océan. Et merci aussi de nous faire découvrir, par votre présence, le monde entier :)
I need differents help depending of the season:
- Babysit children.
- Help with garden maintenance, weeding.
- I always need help to clean, dust, vacum in the house. I would like someone autonomous, who is able to clean alone correctly!
- Help in English or Spanish: playing and talking with children every day.
- Little DIY, if you like it.
Though also expect help with meals & tidying up after meals each day.
There's always something to do here, little DIY, inside or outside, it depend what's important, how is the weather, and what's you prefer.
Don't forget your plastics boots in winter and swimming clothes in summer!

When you're at home all meals are provide, food and drinks eslewhere are payable by you.
We have already welcomed foreign people at home, we all find that it is very friendly and rewarding. In our village, there is 350 inhabitants, in the region of Entre-Deux-Mers. Bordeaux is 35 km, it is possible to get there by bus and I can't drop you off to the bus stop. We already have a bicycle for you because there's no transport in the village, so it's not easy to move alone.
About us: my husband is smoker, but smoking is outside only.
In 2017 ,November and December, my daughter and me travelled with workaway in United Kingdom. Two stays in two differents families. it was amazing, and a very positive experience. We did the same in March 2019, and she went to school in Nothern Ireland, so she need to practise english, not to loose what she learnt. We'll travel again in Ireland in february and beginning March 2020 in Ireland. I really discovered it was nice be, for a moment, two women at home to share lifes'experiences, and daily tasks!!!
It's the reason I prefer receive "adults".
