  • Descripción


    We are Bene (French) and Mike (English) and have a family of 3 children aged 0, 4 and 7. We have a reasonably large house and garden in a small French village located about 45 minutes from saint-Etienne.
    Mike is a Marine Engineer by profession and works away from home for 8 weeks at a time for a total of 6 months a year, hence the need for a little help at home!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We would hope that the volunteer would like to spend a lot of time with the family, both at home and out and about. We believe that experiencing everyday life is the best way to learn and understand a culture.
    You would have direct exposure to the French language and can be taught some key conversational phrases.
    We have a well equipped workshop and range of materials if you feel inclined to get creative and If you came during the time that Mike is home, you may pick up a few handy technical skills.

    The help required would depend on the volunteer as we value each persons own unique contribution and skill set. Any help to alleviate the general workload is appreciated.
    Whether you are more comfortable to occasionally cook and help take care of the kids while helping with chores around the house or you are more inclined to carry out maintenance and assist with our little projects either inside the house or out, we can certainly find something to suit.
    The help required might also depend on whether Mike is home or not as he may well ask for an assistant on one of his many home improvement projects!

    Public transport is limited but we are not adverse to giving a lift into town occasionally. Otherwise, and if you have a driving licence, we can offer use of a car if not going too far.
    nearby there are some beautiful towns such as saint-bonnet-le-chateau and le-puy-en-velay as well as quite a few outdoor centers.
