  • Beschreibung


    I am currently living in a chateau in the Loire valley, together with my mother. I have three kids 20-23 years old who visit as well, although not as often as I'd like... We've had the place for a long time but it's only now that we are spending the majority of the time here. We are American/English and Romanian (as well as French residents) and speak the respective languages. We also have a very cute and cuddly cat.

    We are tightly connected in the local community, which is very important living in the countryside! We do have quite a bit of land (including a small vineyard) which also requires constant maintenance (!) as well as a large interior space which is quite prone to getting dusty or just disorganized...

    We are looking for someone who can be a quasi member of the family who enjoys history and old buildings, maybe gardening as well, and who can spend some time keeping my mother company (she is 94 and had two hip replacements, but can move around pretty well but needs some care and attention).

    This is a great area of France (and I know France very well) and the prospective workawayer will be able to live and learn within a very special home and environment. As part of this very close and friendly local community, you can also immerse yourself in the French culture, visit local sites, possibly learn and/or improve your English, French or Romanian!

  • Arbeit


    We are looking for a kind, patient and energetic person who would ideally fulfill several roles, on a flexible basis:

    - caring for my mother (keeping company, walk with her, cook some light meals, etc.) There is no expectation of personal care for my Mom. I am also solely in charge of medication distribution but she does ask questions about them so I always make everyone aware of the schedule.
    - some light house cleaning/laundry etc.
    - some gardening/planting projects
    - helping with some larger renovation/decoration projects within the chateau

    I will be here most of the time and we also have a family next door who helps with most of these items, but I will also be away short periods (weekends, 2-3 day trips) when the responsibility will be greater.
