*** AVAILABILITY FROM THE 12TH OF MARCH TO THE 26TH OF MARCH & FROM THE 1ST OF APRIL TO THE 16TH OF APRIL - SMALL ONE PERSON BEDROOM AVAILABLE ONLY***
Our names are Elias (French) and Caroline (Swedish), we are a young couple of 27 that travelled across the globe and parents of two twin girls (Freja & Stina) over one year old + our beloved cat called Jean-Marc.
We have been helpers in the past (mostly in Australia) and would like to offer to fellow helpers the opportunity to visit and discover north of France.
Caroline is working in the beer industry and Elias is fully committed in renovating the house.
We bought last year an old café that is being renovated and turned into a house.
So far we have finished all four bedrooms, the living room and the toilet, and we are now building a new bathroom and a new kitchen. (Please do note that we have an old but functioning bathroom and a place to cook :) )
The profile we are looking for is :
Someone that could assist us with the renovation of the bathroom, kitchen and/or making a terrace.
Depending on your current skills we can give you different tasks and there's plenty for you to learn if you haven't got much knowledge in renovation!
We would require 22 hours a week (4 hours per day, 5 days a week) during weekdays and you will enjoy your weekends off. Arrangements can of course be made if you need another day off during the week :)
In exchange of that you will have your own bedroom (pictures below) and food will be provided (if you have any diet requirement please let us know).
We have two bedrooms on the last floor, one is dedicated to our Au Pair and the other one for our future guest, one is rather big with a double bed the other one smaller with a single bed.
Note that we live only 10 min walk from the old town of Lille, you will find heaps of restaurants, bar, clubs, museum etc...
We would probably be able to lend you a bicycle during your stay :)
Please bare in mind that you will be hosted in our house which is being renovated, meaning that we cannot offer you the best comfort, the cons at the moment are : the kitchen and the bathroom is rather basic, bathroom is pretty old but warm showers are always available of course!
*** Note *** We expect to be done with the new bathroom end of April.
- WIFI is fast - If you smoke, no problem we have a garden - last floor of the house is only for workawayers and the Au Pair (2 bedrooms) - Bus stop in front of the house - 30 min walk or 5-10 min to cycle max to reach the central station (train and coach)- we provide beer and wine along with the food -
