    Description

    Hello!
    We are a family of 5; Hélène (35, mother), Jean Charles (35, Father), Salomé, Tao and Isiah (4,2,1), 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! I (Hélène) had a bad accident one month ago and 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

    The essiantial point is help with children. Then if you want to help us in another way, you're welcome but feel free.
    We ask you to prepare the "3"n the morning; breakfast, dressing and take them by car to school and kindergarden.
    Then, should be perfect if you can take them back around 6pm and help to have dinner, play a bit and go to bed. I (Hélène) will be here most of the time but can't physically help, and somedays I'll be away so you have to be self-ruling. On the evening their father is back around 7 pm.
    During the day, you are free to visit, stay home or help on farm if you are interested. The same after 8 pm, you are free to go out of course.
    We also need you on week-ends because Jean-Charles works all days but of course we can plan and find someone else if you want to leave for a few days or if you want to stay out one night.
