  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for 1 person or a couple from now up until /early October

    We are an English family of four running a Chambre d'hôtes in Normandy. The children are 18 and 16 years old and we live in the middle of a lovely French hamlet. The area is magnificent and we are constantly still surprised by how much Normandy has to offer. Easy travel to Paris close-by 3-4 hours by train and bus and 3 hours by car. We can collect you from Falaise our nearest town which is 6km away.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We have been doing workaway for a long time although we have had a year off in 2018. but we have generally found over the years that the more you are open to the exchange that workaway offers the more you will gain from it. It is a fantastic way to see the real French countryside and still get to visit the tourist sites on your days off.

    We are looking for people that are self-motivated and hard-working and who are considerate and generally helpful around the house when living with others.
    We have some ongoing projects as well as the day to day running and maintenance of our House and Gardens.The projects tend to be concentrated on much more in the offseason months but can happen a little during the mid-season
    We need to look after a small market garden during the summer months.
    During the summer we are usually very busy from April-September with the Bed and Breakfast. We are looking for people who are able and happy to work unsupervised cleaning and gardening whilst we deal with our business,
    It is important that you are able to be friendly, chatty and professional with our guests as they will be around the house and gardens.
    We speak French and our children are fluent in French but as a family, we usually converse in French in the mornings and English for the rest of the day. Our guests are a mixture of French and English speaking.

    The room is very small with a double bed and a desk so we can take a couple but you need to be aware it is small

    We have some basic bikes you can use and if you want to explore further afield we can get you to the bus stop in Falaise which can take you to Caen. The area is famous for the D-day sites and cider and cheese. You also have the medieval history in Bayeux, Falaise and Caen. Some workawayers choose to hire a car for a weekend to explore which you can do from Caen or if you are 21 from Falaise at the supermarket l'eclerc.
    We would prefer a non-smoker or an extremely considerate outdoor smoker and we have some animals here such as a cat 2 goats 6 chickens.
    We provide all meals and we usually eat and prepare altogether but you may have to cook for yourself from time to time. We don't provide snacks
    When applying we ask that you send us a message explaining why you are attracted to our place and what you are looking to gain from the experience. Please make sure you have a photo on your profile. Please also confirm whether or not you have any dietary requirements or regime and include the dates that you are looking for.
