We are a gay couple based in the Vienne with our twin sons (10 years old). Having renovated our house we are now embarking on our next project - bringing new life to an old farm on three hectares of land so that we can raise animals, including horses.
We are an international family - a Brit, a Belgian and have lived and worked in all sorts of places around the world before settling here in France.

We are looking for someone who can provide practical help in terms of renovations. We have the knowledge and skills, so it’s really a question of manpower (or womanpower) to get things done quicker, although if you already have experience renovating then that would really help.
Alongside this it would also be helpful to have someone who is able to spend time with our children during the day, help keep them out of mischief and entertained, although they are very independent! We are also keen for the boys to learn new languages so if you have additional language skills, starting with French (they have been at school here for three years), Dutch (a huge plus as it is papa’s native language), Italian or Spanish that would be even better.
Happy to consider a couple who between them have the skills / interests above.
Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
languages are a part of what we do and one of the main reasons for moving our children to France from the U.K.
You will either have a room on the farm or in a room at our house which is less than ten minutes away. The house has a heated plunge pool so ideal for relaxing at the end of the day and watching the incredibly clear skies that we have here.
The idea is that most mealtimes will be communal and we can share cooking responsibilities, but also the flexibility that everyone does there own thing.
If you are interested as a couple we can agree that you have certain “days off” with exclusive access to the house so that you can have some privacy.
We are ideally looking for help 4-5 days per week although this does not need to be full days and we can agree ad hoc hours.

We can facilitate 4G internet at speeds of 25-50 mbps and by agreement a room with a desk in a quiet part of the house.

Our dogs are not used to other dogs, but they do need socialising more (particularly due to the pandemic) so open to suggestions.
