    *** UPDATE 13/05/2021 ***

    Due to the current COVID situation, we are facing a cancellation and we are looking for some people interested in staying with us for a while! So, if you want to enjoy the lockdown in the countryside, and if the « job » suits you, feel free to write us!

    -———————————————

    Hello!
    We are a family of 5; Hélène (36, mother), Jean Charles (36, Father), Salomé, Tao and Isiah (5,3,2), living in the countryside in Normandy, close to the sea and numerous historical places.
    We love to meet people from everywhere, we love traveling backpacked and we are used to host couchsurfers.
    Well, now it's our turn to ask for help! We are looking for somebody interesting in sharing our life and help us with children.
    We live in a wonderful place, but you have to love nature, easy life and animals ! My husband is a farmer (dairy cows and horses) and I'm a veterinarian.
    We only need your help for a few hours a day, then you are free and you have a car. We can afford french classes for you if you want.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We leave in an incredible region of history; specially concerning Second World War, many places and museums to visit.
    Then you'll discover fantastic landscapes; in the north; La Hague, with its cliffs upon the sea (smells Ireland!), small harbours and islands (between us and great britain), the famous Mont Saint Michel in the south, and the natural park where we live (a good place for birds' lovers).
    We can afford french classes if you are interested.
    Then, if you re interested in dairy cows and horses, we have many things to share.
    And...of course we'll learn from each other!

  • Help

    Help

    The essiantial point is help with children. Then if you want to help us in another way, you're welcome but feel free.

    During the (horse) breeding season, from Mars to July, I (Hélène) work 6 morning on 7. That would be perfect if you can prepare the "3"on the morning; breakfast, dressing and take them by car to school and kindergarden. As children and me are less in a rush...

    During the day, you are free to visit, stay home or help on farm if you are interested. I only work 2 afternoons, the others I spend my time dealing with my horses at home.
    Then, kids are back around 5 pm or later if i'm at work.
    On the evening, we can mostly manage but you're welcome to share time with us !

    We also welcome help on some week-ends because Jean-Charles works all days, and sometimes I'm on duty too. But of course we can plan and find someone else if you want to leave for a few days.

    Everything is adjustable ! It can be more or less ;)

    We live in a big old farmhouse in the countryside.
    The house has 2 bigs rooms at the first floor and 5 upstairs. We have two bathrooms so, it's easy to share. We lend you our room, which is quite big, with a double bed. We can easily install a desk if you need, and wifi connection.
