  • Description

    Description

    We are a Swedish family of 4 who has lived on the French Riviera for more than 10 years. Our children are 5 and 7 years old. We live just outside the village Biot, a cute village in between Cannes and Nice. 15 minutes from Antibes.

    We bought our house 9 years ago and last year we did a massive transformation of our garden. The worst is done, now we need help to maintain the house and garden and to put some extra effort in before our summer rentals start. We live in a calm place with a lovely view. We have fantastic walking tracks right outside our gate. 10 min walk to the bus station and to Biot village. The closest beach is 3 km down the road. And the area has everything you can wish for culturally.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are Swedish but speak English and French. Our children goes to French school. We have travelled a lot before having the children and decided to settle down in France. Since travelling has become more of a rarity for us, it is great having the world come to us in the shape of workawayers!

    The area where we live is famous for the artists that has spent a lot of time here. Picasso spent a lot of time in the area and in Biot. The Picasso museum is in Antibes, 15 minutes away, Matisse museum 20 minutes away etc.

    Biot is well known of its glassblowing culture and you can still see how it is done in the traditional way here in Biot. The French food culture is to be found everywhere and it is a great treasure.

    Last year we did a massive transformation of our garden. We built a pool and garage with a lovely terrasse on top. The worst is done, now we need help to maintain the house and garden and to put some extra effort in before our summer rentals start.
    We want you to feel part of our home. Some household tasks can be requested. If you are interested in cooking, I won't stop you from it.
