Our family of four lives in the French Alps, very close to the Swiss Border. We live in a small village that is close to a small town that is about 40 minutes away from a larger city. We feel that we can be close to lots of people whenever we want but that we are also safely hidden in the country!
We are non-smokers and we require that our guests be non-smokers. We are not vegetarian but don't mind if you're vegetarian. We have no food allergies. We don't care about your vaccine schedule or mask-wearing.

Help around the house
Live in a rich French village in the Alps near the border with Switzerland. Lots of ski stations around! Not far from Geneva, Switzerland.
Ou region is VERY beautiful. It's called Vallée Verte. LOTS of great places to walk and enjoy nature. Some social activities around although very different from a city. We buy eggs from one villager and vegetables from another. Sometimes we also buy meat from another villager. People here are lovely and very welcoming toward foreigners (I am a foreigner).
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need a young person who can help with kids for 3h/day and small house tasks. Ines is 3 years old and Tomas is 7 (he is very independent and smart). Ines requires normal care for a 3 year old. She has no special condition. She speaks French and understands Portuguese. No general house cleaning necessary. On Wednesdays, we need 5h help with kids. Weekends free. We are flexible about the schedule, depending on your plans and needs.
This host offers a language exchange
We are interested in Russian, Italian dialects (Napoletano, Veneto, Pugliese) and in Latin languages such as Provençal, Catalán, Gallego and others.
We love in an average-sized home (about 120 m2) and there is a separate room for our guest. This room is usually our living room which we turn into a guest room when there are visitors. The room is big and has a great view as well as a direct door to go outside. We only have one toillet that we'll need to share among the whole family. The guest room is right next to the kitchen and it can be noisy in the mornings as we start our day around 7 AM. Our house has a nice outside space (although not much used during winter).
Routine: start day around 7 AM. Kids go to school 8:30. Mélanie may work from home or go to school (she's a teacher). I work from home all the time, so I am at my office at home the full day. At 4:30 kids are back. Starting at 5:30, kids need to get inside for shower and homework. We need to dine at 7:30 and kids need to be in bed at 8 PM. We need your help especially from 4:30 to 7:30.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
The guest room can fit a person working from home outside of the time when we need help with the kids. Our internet connection does not fully support two people working from home but we can make quick arrangements for that and we can guarantee good internet.
There's plenty of parking space around here!
