  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with older children at university and work.
    Our house was originally 3 farm workers cottages built in the 16th century. We have 2 dogs, a horse and pony, 3 cats and chickens. We are looking for people who are cheerful, friendly, animal loving, honest and hardworking. Ideal opportunity for an individual but equally happy for a couple or 2 friends.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in the countryside close to the historic town of Colchester, Essex where there is a castle, historic buildings, zoo, cinema, shops, cafes, restaurants, museums and a theatre.

    Our house is quite isolated. There are no buses or trains directly from our house but we can take you to the train station or bus stop. It’s a great place for meditation, to enjoy nature or take walks through the fields.

    There are lots of opportunities to go to London. We can take you and bring you home during the week. You can visit Abbey Road to have a photograph taken on the Zebra crossing like the Beatles, go shopping or visit the sites. If you don’t have a car and want to explore, there is a good train service to Çhelmsford, Brentwood, Suffolk and Norfolk.

    Aide

    We have been busy at work and have not been able to spend as much time on the garden and outbuildings as we would have liked. We need help with gardening and the vegetable patch. Also general maintenance and tidying up the land and yard.

    We have a horse and a pony that you can help with, if that interests you. We also have a house in Italy that will need help with landscaping later in the year.

    Ideally we would prefer Italian speakers as we would like to improve our basic Italian and can help you with English. We cannot accept people with nut allergies or those requiring vegan meals. We would prefer non smokers.

    I am learning Italian so ideally you should speak the language so that you can help me and I will help with your English practise. I love the Italian culture and food. My husband loves the wine!

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    You will live in the house as part of the family. The accommodation provides a double bed and a bathroom next door. The bathroom is shared with my daughter.

    We would share the kitchen and eat dinner together. We are happy for you to cook and share your culture. There is always food in the fridge and cupboards to make your own breakfast and lunch. We would not be able to cater for vegans or those with nut allergies.

    There are two lounges. You would be welcome to sit with us or to use the other lounge which has a television with access to Netflix.

    Ideally you would have a car as we live in an isolated area, but we can take you to the train station at agreed times. We were flexible with the work hours. We go to London during the week so we can take you and bring you home if you want to work weekends.
