We are an American couple with two small children who live in the countryside of the Southwest of France. We work from home, so we’re home a lot, and have an active social life that includes frequent guests. We work primarily in the mornings, so need help with breakfast and getting the kids to school. Other than that, we’re flexible.
You can improve your English and your French. We speak English among ourselves, yet nearly every interaction outside the home is in French (aside from our anglophone friends). So you can improve your English, your French, and visit the beautiful Dorgogne region.
We’re looking for a woman to help with childcare, cooking (we eat a lot of vegetarian food), organizing the house (we just moved houses), and gardening if she’s interested. We have a 2-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son, and the person would need to have a driver’s license to drive them to daycare/school.
We live in the middle of a forest, less than 30 minutes from Périgueux, the capital of Dordogne. You’ll have a beautiful private room with a balcony. We also have a large swimming pool and a pond. You’ll have free access to the kitchen.
Public transportation is very limited locally, so you will need to have a driver’s license. It is preferable for you to bring your car, but you could use ours if necessary. There are plenty of inter-city trains from Périgueux. There are a large number of cultural activities in the region, especially for people interested in forested areas, rivers, chateaux, and ancient civilizations (Romans to Cro-Magnon).
