Maison Du Rocher De Fontainbleau

We are a family house that operates a Bed&Breakfast, an adventure park with unusual accommodations and activities/sports. We are immersed in nature, in a Forest surrounded by trees, rock climbing and possibilities to practice different kinds of sports. Just 1 hour by train from Paris. La Maison Du Rocher De Fontainebleau is a company so you need to have a working visa or a European passport to apply as we will deliver you a official contract during your stay. So in fact you will get some symbolic payment. Here is definitely a lifestyle choice where you will have two different experiences: The first is related to involvement with the guests. They are here for various purposes, including team meetings, sports coaching, birthdays, bouldering in the forest and family/friends/couple vacations. However, it's focused in a mutual exchange of ideas, culture, and stories. You greet the guests, share meals, participate in sports, activities and chat with them during the stay. The other is your involvement with the other members of the team or Family. You will have the opportunity to meet people from many cultures all over the world, who speak a variety of languages (English being the universal language). You will spend most of your time here, living, helping and experiencing together with the other ones. They will become family and you will learn so much from each and every one. Basically we prepare the place for guests to share the moments with them during their stay. - Handyman services. Ex: gardening, carpentry, painting, general maintenance, electrics, etc. - Cleaning and Housekeeping. Ex: Cleaning common areas in the house, Laundry, preparing the accommodations for the guests. - Kitchen hand. Ex: Dishes, help with cooking, setting the tables, storage the food, grocery shops... Welcome to the Maison Du Rocher!

Depending of your experience and motivation we share the workload between the team. But globally your stay will be focus to your speciality. We will be available to help, inform and support you in all your doubts about how to do the tasks!

I was actually expecting something good, but my expectations were exceeded and I had an amazing experience!

Stephan is a super nice guy, shares his dreams with a lot of people and is always ready to help us.

I lived 35 days in a very beautiful place, activities for all levels, bicycles available, we can use everything the hotel has to offer. And we also have French lessons.

Sometimes you work a little more than you agreed, but you can always negotiate your days off by talking to Carol and Lili, who are also amazing people.

I recommend that you live this experience!

Como já a havia visto no comentários antes, o trabalho é muito e tende a aumentar mais ainda no verão. Helpers house legal com um bocado de brasileiros. E podemos usar as instalações do hotel quando os clientes não estão utilizando. A comida fica disponível para nós cozinharmos e eles estavam buscando disponibilizar o almoço já feito para a equipe.

Amazing experience full of new opportunities!
The family was very kind and provided me with everything I needed, and the Helpers Team is a great chance to meet people from all over the world.
The things to do were not difficult at all but varied (housekeeping, dishes...) depending on the season. But not everything is work! You’ll have enough free time to enjoy the area, do accrobranche, sleep in a bubble stargazing, explore the beautiful forest nearby and the cities around.
I highly recommend this experience and I assure you won't regret it!
PS: You’ll fall in love with Samba and Yamba.

I had a great opportunity to meet amazing people, and friends that will be for the life.
There’s a huge forest area nearby that can be explored by bike and it’s beautiful.
Stephane helped me with a great opportunity to learn more about the local cuisine, which I’m very thankful for.
The place was not superorganized, because it’s winter season, but probably in the spring and summer it will have more organization.
The dogs Samba and Yamba are awesome and you will definitely have fun with them.
