  • Description

    Description

    We are a fun loving family that relocated 11 years ago from the UK to France. We have enjoyed hosting over 70 people over a 6 year period. We are Matt, Becky, Edouard (10) and Henri (8) and Dusty (cocker spaniel) Heidi (labrodoodle) Bobby the cat and Pinky and Perky (the pigs) and around 9 chickens! We speak English at home with French as our second language.

    We are now looking from earlyMarch 2017 for a single female wanting to stay on a longer term basis of 3 months to act in the role of au pair/ home help and pet-sitter allowing us to go away for a odd weekend or longer periods.

    Jobs can be varied from general household chores, general jobs around the property, gardening and assistance with our animals. Come and share our lovely home in the wild and stunning Ariege Pyrenees.
