  • Description


    We are a French-American family of 5 (Anaïs, Joshua, Mathis 15, Luna 5, and Mila 3) who likes to travel with their art.

    We have been renovating an old stone house on the beautiful mesa of the Larzac in the South of France, near Millau for the last 10 years but most of our free time is dedicated to creating art, circus shows, music, teaching and cinema.

    We love travelling with our children as we consider discovering other cultures is as important as attending school.

    We are looking for someone to help us take care of the little ones when we leave for our concerts or circus shows. Here is the website or our circus company : ask us for the links

    Looking forward to meeting you!
    Anaïs and Joshua

  • Aide


    We will need helpers for the following missions :

    - for the months of JULY and AUGUST: mainly looking after the kids (mostly our 2 young daughters aged 3 and 5 as our 15 year old boy is autonomous). A typical day would be taking care of the girls and preparing lunch from 9 to 12, then we would have lunch together, and looking after the girls for another 2 hours after their early afternoon nap. On days when we have gigs, you will be free during the day but taking care of the girls + dinner and bedtime from the afternoon till late at night.
    - gardening (weeding and watering)
    - cooking
    - house cleaning

    We are expecting people to stay between 3 weeks and 2 months, so that the girls get accustomed to you.

    We will expect the helpers to work up to 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. We will provide the food for all your meals but we will count on you to often prepare lunch for the whole family and cook your own meals for dinner (or take the leftovers from lunch). We eat organic and local food as much as possible.

    We would prefer being contacted by English or Spanish speakers for the kids to practise either (we speak French and English at home).

  • Langues

    Langues parlées
    Anglais: Courant
    Français: Courant
    Italien: Intermédiaire
    Espagnol: Débutant

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    We are a bilingual family (French and English) and our kids attend a Spanish speaking school so languages are really central in our household.

  • Hébergement


    You will be accomodated in a yurt, and have your own kitchenette in a little caravan 100m away from our house. Life here is quite rustic as we use dry toilets and live in the countryside! You will share our bathroom in the house or take sun-heated showers.
    We strongly recommend the workawayer to have their driver's license as we live in a little hamlet in the middle of nowhere (15km away from the first grocery store).

    Autres infos...

    We live on the Larzac in the South of France, near Millau and its famous Viaduct. We are surrounded by gorgeous river valleys and typical little French villages. The area is perfect for people who wish to retreat in the wilderness, go for hikes, take a swim in cold rivers, or climb.
