  • Descrição


    As long time travellers we believe traveling is not about the places you visit but about the people you meet along the way!

    You like to work outside? You are attracted to Québec East part because of its parks and wilderness? Great! For summer 2024 we are looking for help in May, June, August and September. We need help with our outdoor projects.

    On other months we sometimes host a workayer in our house but for cultural exchange and short period (1 week)

    We are a busy (sometimes noisy/chaotic) and funny french canadian family with too much projects.Our tribe (3 boys and two parents):

    -Manu: 16 years old (love to jump in ski and mountain biking).
    -Éloi: 14 years old (love taking photos, building crazy things and obsess with fishing)
    -Théo: 12 years old (love drawing, nature, building small wood structure and making drama)
    -Stéphanie: 44 years old, teaching at university, love to travel, mountain hike, mushroom picking, upcycling things, building trails
    -Charles: electric engineer, own a oceonagraphic company, like to bbq, hunt, and hike.
    We all speak french (native) and english, except for Théo who speaks french and a bit of english. If you don't speak french it's not a problem.... lucky you, you won't understand kids fighting (they do a lot!).

    During summer june and july boys don't have school it's a challenge to keep them away from gaming, computer and cell phone...So we expect the workawayer to be good examples in that matter.

    We live two "parallels" lives:

    -Weekdays are in the village of Bic, Rimouski (we live 4 km away from the village) in a big modern house, the house has a lot of space and cooking equipments with good wifi
    -Weekend days we go at our land (huge and with spectacular view), at our off grid cabin. There we build lots of things: trails, road etc...) it's remote and very special

    We are an open minded couple that likes to work, meet people and of course eat good food along with a glass of wine:) Both of us travelled a lot and we believe that we all can always learn from each other. We take that good people always find a way to meet as an universal rule:)

  • Acomodação


    During summer (from the beginning of May up to the end of September) you would have your own small tiny cabin with two comfy beds (see pictures of the little blue cabins and the rooms). The tiny cabin is 20 meters from the home so that give you some privacy and it means you can sleep longer. You would use the bathroom inside the house and share it with the kids (oh yeah...three boys!).

    You share the rest of the house with the family and hope you will feel at home :)

    The cabin will be clean and ready for you when you arrive (we expect that at your last day some of your contribution is to help is use to prepare for the next stay (making beds etc.)

    We provide the meals and food for your work days. Breakfast and lunch is self-served (we will make sure you find something appropriated for you). We love good coffee!
    Dinner will be together around 7 pm. We will cook the meals and do the cleaning together (we can do turn or do it together). Unless you take in charge the cooking chores this is'nt in your working time.

    If we go at our off grid cabin during your stay you can sleep there. It's a very wild experience.
