We are a German-French-American-Swiss family living in a hamlet of Seignosse, close to the ocean. Our family compound counts in total 2 grand parents, 3 kids and 3 parents. We also have chickens, cats, a goat and a few horses. There are regularly a bunch of workawayer's at my brother's business next door. My husband and I are running a private hobby farm with no business operation (just for fun), but we both have jobs elsewhere and therefore would need your help on the farm, and with our seven year old daughter.

Help around the house
You'd benefit living in a beautiful place in the forest, walking distance to the beach, surrounded by animals and a multi cultural family and community environment.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We'd love to get some help with looking after the animals, in particular the horses. Therefore you should be experienced with those, as well as driving a tractor and have a solid level of training ponies in hand and teach riding to children. There's always little things to repair, clean and organise around the property. Ideally you have at least a basic knowledge of French to make it easier for you to get around (and build out your language skills), and your mother tongue is either German or English. It would be awesome if you could help with homework. Drivers license and car needed if you want to go explore our area (highly recommended!). You should be vaccinated against Covid and a non smoker.
This host offers a language exchange
Our family speaks a mix of French, German and English ; and as we live in a France, this would be a great place to improve your French!
