  • Descrição


    Hello! I am looking for someone (individual, couple or small family) to join us in September and October for 6-7 weeks (if you can come for 2-3 weeks, please also be in touch!) to assist me with home and children while I am busy with a project (much of the time still at home) and also to help my partner a little bit on the weekends with projects on our land.

    - Good with children (patient, warm-hearted, creative, healthy boundaries, modeling good behavior, enjoy doing outdoor and creative activities, singing, etc.)
    - Ability to work independently and to improvise / think creatively
    - Your own transportation is a bonus!
    - You are mature, reliable and dependable
    - Experience with at least some of the things we are asking help with (cleaning & laundry are basic)
    - Socially independent (we have sometimes guests on our property who come for peace and tranquility, so it's important to respect their space and keep the environment serene - but don't worry, there is plenty of space for everyone to do their thing!!!)

    Accommodation, Food & Hours:
    - Room in house or use of a nice and cosy caravan in the outdoor shade, with cooking stove, water, and next to pizza oven; or parking for your caravan, yurt, etc.
    - We will provide dry ingredients and a shopping budget for fresh things that you can buy on your trips to town (6 km - Saint Chely d'Aubrac; 17 km - Espalion or Laguiole).
    - Working 24 hours a week, scheduled with Jules, although much work will be independent. Two consecutive days off, usually during the week (flexible, though), as Jules is home weekends and would like to have assistance with projects on our land.

    Hello! We live in a beautiful, peaceful, pure setting with our family of 5 persons - French dad, American mom, three children ages 12, 4 and 1, and our furry family members. We homeschool, grow fruits and veggies, love to play games, read and make creative art projects!

    We are in the start-up of autonomous living on our land.

    We are also a yoga teacher (mother) and photographer (father) we have a one year old garden, and lots of small projects here and there in our home and land, as well as some bigger projects (turn the hangar into a greenhouse by replacing one wall and the roof, build a new stone roof eventually over our grange and home, add some four-legged friends to our family like a pony and horse, and some goats or sheep for milk).

    It's a peaceful old farm with a nicely finished large family home, rolling hills, lots of wildlife, beautiful flowers will come in spring, abundant water flowing all around, house furnished by nephriatic (underground lake), on the plateau of Aubrac in the north Aveyron department. We welcome families, children, and caravans / people traveling with campers.

    Some work is physical - gardening, small building projects, use of a karcher, mowing the land sometimes (just a path), moving wood with wheel barrow, and some work is more 'soft' - cleaning indoors, cooking, helping with the children doing art, language, math, etc.

    Please contact us with your details! We can welcome you soon and would love to have you join us!
