    Hi there,

    We're a Belgian couple in its 30-40s willing to share our beautiful house and garden with the right person. In exchange, we'd like you to help with the garden and general maintenance around and inside the house.

    You need to be OK with animals since we've a dog, 2 cats, some fishes and sheep. You won't be bothered by kids though 😉

    I'm a former Workawayer, we love to travel, have friends around the world, and are looking forward to sharing some time with you!

    Caroline & Raphael

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We can help you out with French, give you an insight of our culture, let you taste Belgian food an drinks 🍻, give you historical tours linked with WWII history, show you some nice mountainbiking or walking spots, take you on music rehearsal or events (I play the 🎷), drive you to Luxembourg or around Belgium if you feel like visiting... We both work so that would mostly be during evening and weekend.

  • Aide


    We've a BIG garden which always needs some kind of maintenance. It can be trimming hedges, clearing, planting, removing grass, cutting wood, repairing fences... We'd like to host someone who has experience with this kind of work and, most importantly, who can be autonomous since we won't always be there during the day.

    We've some unfinished work inside the house too, such as painting doors and walls, sanding chairs...

    If you feel OK with it, you can also help with the animals (feeding and cleaning the sheep's pen, walking the dog...).

    Carpentry or landscaping skills are a big plus since we have lots of projects👍

    Autres infos...

    We live in a small village near Bastogne which is often visited by people interested in WWII history and famous for its museums. There are nice places to visit close-by: La Roche, Durbuy, Dinant, La Chouffe brewery, High Fens, Houffalize, Bouillon...

    The Ardennes is also a great area for walking, mountainbiking, relaxing in the woods... You can barrow our bikes and gear 🚴

    We're not too far away from France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Germany so it's really neat if you feel like traveling on your free time. ⚠️ There is no train station nearby our place, nor taxis, and the bus to Bastogne comes only twice a day ⚠️ We can drop you somewhere on our way to work, lend you or bikes, or spend the weekend exploring with you if our agenda is free.

    We also have a hot tub, a fire pit and lots of books for chilled evenings 🧖‍♀️

    We expect you to have a travel insurance in case there is any problem during your stay. We don't care if you're vaccinated or not, just please don't come if you feel sick. Upon your arrival, we'll ask for contact details and home address in case we need to contact your family.

    Just write if you have any questions!
