  • Description


    We are a family with two kids of 9 and 14 years old. We live in a large quiet house with a garden, an aboveground pool, at 10 minute drive from Dijon (Burgundy), in a small village. We have a very quiet little dog, a lovely cat and hens.

    The village is close to a hilly wood, very pleasant to walk, run or mountain biking. There is a bus line that goes to Dijon several times an hour.

    We love and practice a lot of outdoor sports: XC running (a lot), mountain biking, cycling, swimming, diving, roller-skating, skiing, triathlon ... with our friends. We enjoy to go on races!

    My job is to develop an in line skating club (events, communication ...), I love it! My husband works in computer security and the protection of data.

    I like to spend time cooking healthily with organic and local products . I'm always putting the bazaar in the kitchen, listening music and dancing! We try to reduce our environmental impact and limit our consumption (packaging, energy, water ...). We have (or trying to have...lol) a verry little vegetable garden; Also Cherry, plum, apples and fig trees.

    I like to enjoy the morning, so I get up early enough ... and sleep early too!
    I do not like sophisticated things, shopping malls, fast-food, perfume, intensive agriculture, and inactivity. Our family is very active, I am always busy doing lots of things, and I like people who are also active, sporty and talkative !

    My husband is muuuuch calmer than me, he loves tinkering with computers, always examine new technologies, learn and train in new things, and in the evening watching movies or documentaries in English (he worked for 4 years in england).

    The region is very paceful, beautiful and there are many tourists who appreciate the good things: wine, food, architecture, old stones, nature, small picturesque villages and their stories ... the city of Dijon is young and dynamic with lots of students and lots of things to do!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will be immersed in the life of our French traditional family, we can share our experiences, talking, cooking, sport practice, gardening, listening music... we really enjoyed to have a workaway at home, it's a kind of travell for us!

    So far we have always "adopted" our workaways, they have really been a member of the family! We have always been sad at the time of separation!

    We like to discover your country, your traditions, your convictions, your specialties, your hobbies ... each exchange is unique! So we like talkative people :-)

    We are tolerant of diets, I cook mainly vegetables and legumes, but also meat (for lunch), fish, dairy products, eggs ... but you are free to eat or not (without having to to justify!).

    However I must warn you that in September and October I have so much work that I am not at home much, but my husband is more present!

    Your main task will be to supervise and help with the homework of both children. Our teenage daughter "forgets" to do her homework and needs a lot of supervision as she scatters easily. She doesn't like to do her homework or learn her lessons.

    There will also be lots of fun and games (trampoline, walks, chases, hide and seek, swiming-pool, card games, badminton, dancing....) with the girls, especially the 9 year old who is easy going.

    You can also take the dog out, I don't know if this can really be considered as a job ^^!

    There is also certainly some manual work to do, like weeding and cleaning the garden, helping me with the cleaning of the henhouse, doing some painting... it depends on the period and what you feel like doing.

    In June and September I need a lot of help with cherries and plums (picking, stoning, freezing or making jam) and in September and October with "management of the house" as I work a lot (shopping, washing, cooking, washing up, tidying...).

    In September and October I prefer to have 2 workaways to share the work, it is imperative to speak French fairly well, to love children and have experience with children/teenagers (9 and 15 years old).

    Except September and October, no problem if you don't speak French or little French, we love to speak another language at home!

    Drving license is a REAL benefit.

    3 tou 5 hours a day + wednesday (depending on the availability of the grandparents )

    Minimum 3 weeks.
