Bonjour tout le monde!



Hi there!

We host for 1 week first. I would prefer a longer staying,2 or 3 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 carpooling. it is also the way to Italy, Switzerland!

My daughters (27 and 29) are not living anymore with us but they come often!
We are 57 and 67 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, pruning, weeding ...
- Help with the horses(cleaning boxes etc...)
- some help in house chores
- Cooking

Sleeping:
2 comfortable bedrooms in the attic

Food:
We provide food but don't hesitate to cook if you like cooking!
Vegetarian or else are welcome.
You can use also the washing machine.

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!!!).

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 ).

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

If you are allergic to cats hairs, horses hairs 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, 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!!!

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!
