We are looking for a friendly, reliable helper with a clean driving licence to join us for a longer period - up until around Christmas if possible.

We need help with school runs in the weekday mornings, light housework, laundry and some cooking if you like to be in the kitchen.

We have three bilingual children aged 6, 9 and 12 and we live on a Normandy dairy farm with a B&B, horses, competition ponies, cats, dog and poultry. You can learn about and help with the animal care.

We always have outdoor maintenance projects, so if you have carpentry, painting, gardening skills, please get in touch.

We are located in a small village but Caen city is 20 minutes away and you will have shared use of a car.

We will pay some pocket money for this job as the hours required will be more than usual. You will have a pretty bedroom with your own shower room, TV and wifi access plus all meals provided. Saturday or Sunday will be your day off, depending on schedules.
