Bonjour tout le monde!


SEE YOU BEGINNING OF SPRING 2017

I WILL NOT HOST IN JULY AND AUGUST 2017 BUT CONTACT ME JUST IN CASE
************************************************
Hi there!
Wait for you!

We host for 1 week first. I would prefer a longer staying,2 weeks,but we see after the first week.

We live, my husband and me, in South Burgundy, in Bresse, in a very beautiful countryside.

We are between Lyon and Dijon, 45km north from Bourg en Bresse, 17km from Louhans and 12km from Saint Amour where there is a railway station.
We are very close from highway A39 (Aire du Poulet de Bresse) so it is great if you hitchhicking or "covoiturage" (car sharing?) it is also the way to Italy, Switzerland!

My daughters (26 and 24) are not living anymore with us but they come often! and my old mother stays with us.
We are 56 and 66 years old and we are french.

In particular we would love to host anyone with any of the following skills:

- all the work that can be done in a garden
- clean the horses box at least once a week
- housework: sweep and mop the floor,fill the dish washer etc...)
- Cooking, very appreciated!!!vegan, vegetarian or not, hot or mild spicy indian, thai, vietnam, chinese, armenian, libanese, greek receipes...

Sleeping:
1 big bedroom in the attic

Food:
We provide food but don't ask me to cook from monday to friday as I work all week outside!
You should be able the prepare all together the meals if I am not at home!...and even I am here...
At noon, we usually have sandwiches, salads etc... and the main meal is at dinner.

My daughters are vegan and vegetarian so it is not a problem for us BUT I need to know how much and what to buy!!
My husband eat little meat and I am more"vegetarian" than "carnivore"....

You can use also the washing machine, all that in exchange of 4 or 5 (+ or-) hours of work per day and 5 a week( working time depends also from the weather and the work that must be done! can be less ).

Free unlimited internet(when the connection is good...) so you can bring your laptop(if you don't have, we can lend you ours for checking your emails and prepare your next trip!!!).

We have 2 dogs, 4 cats. Also 2 horses and 1 donkey. We don't ride them, they are retired!

If you are allergic to cats, horses or dust please this place is not for you.

At the end of the work, you can, of course, stay with us and share our lives, listen music, watch movies, read, have a walk with the dogs, go swimm 15mn from the house...

I speak English, italian and little spanish (I would love to learn more spanish).

ALSO: you can learn french here because we can speak english only when you don't understand something!and also because we are more comfortable in french!!!
BUT I would like to host people who knows already some or more french!

THE MOST IMPORTANT IS TO BE SMILING AND...DEFINITELY...ENERGETIC AND SHOW THAT YOU CAN WORK ALONE

If you any question, please, ask me!
hope to hear about you soon!
