    We are looking for volunteers to help us between April 21st and May 7th.

    Please apply only if you are available between April 21st and May 7th. We are a young French couple with two young and well-behaved children (aged 5 and 3) as well as a dog. In the summer of 2019, we purchased a magnificent 16th-century castle in the Vexin Normand, close to Giverny. The property is conveniently located just 50 minutes from Paris by car or train. We are currently working on renovating the castle and its gardens to restore them to their former glory. I am a photographer, and my wife is an art director.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    By staying with us, you'll have the opportunity to reside in a castle with a rich 500-year history. Volunteers will have the chance to learn about the local and regional history of the castle, and we'll be delighted to share the extraordinary past of our home with you. According to legend, Queen Blanche de Castille used to stay in our castle when she visited the nearby abbey.

    In addition to discovering life in a typical French village, you'll also experience the strong sense of community that exists here. Our home is located in the most beautiful part of the Vexin, and we're excited to show you the stunning surroundings.

    During this summer, my main focus will be on renovating the house and tending to our 14-acre garden and meadows. We could use some help with these tasks, and no specific skills are required - just a willingness to assist and a practical mindset. We will be responsible for taking care of our hedges, woods, and orchards.

    In addition, we plan to plant many vegetables and organize our lives to become as self-sufficient as possible. It would be helpful if you had some knowledge in woodworking, and we may also require assistance with masonry work. Furthermore, we will need help with meal preparation and babysitting.

    If you enjoy old motors, you're in luck! We have a collection of motorcycles, tractors, and cars dating from the 1930s to the 1970s that we hope to restart.
