  • Description


    Hi !
    We are a family of 4, parents and 2 girls. We have a big house in a nice area of Paris suburbs, only 30 mn from central Paris, with 20 mn walk and then 10 mn train. Big garden, terrasse, lots of space.
    My husband works in a big telecommunication company and is an artist and guitarist and writer after work. Currently at home. I manage our house in Normandy which I rent and various other things from home. We are restoring a very big house near Barcelona and another big project in Nyons, South of France. So we are rarely at home ! ....Our last daughter (20) is studying law, and the older one (25) also lives with us while she works in Paris after a business degree .
    We love to have foreign people at home, it's a bit like traveling all the time !

  • Help


    Right now, I would love someone good in web-marketing to help me rent my house in Normandy and maybe prepare other renting I am planning.
    I usually need help with housekeeping and some gardening. And sometimes DIY ....I will adapt the work according to your abilities !... I sometimes need help a whole day in Normandy to prepare the house for renting. And if you are a musician or a singer, you could also join my daughters and husband, who like to play and sing !
