I’m a retired medical researcher, living in northern France for the past couple of years and thoroughly enjoying it!
I travel a lot, but love to return here whenever possible. I lived in Italy for a number of years, and I’m Fluent in Italian.
My children visit me from time to time; and enjoy the peacefulness of this part of the country!

This is a region full of history, with lots to explore!
We are less than an hour north of Paris, with good connections!Though unfortunately not many during the day! It is not a commutable place for Paris.
As I said this part of France is full of history; I'm only 40 minutes away from where Joan of Arc burnt at the state! Plus of course we have the memorials from WW1.
There is so much to see, and the scenery is stunning, with some lovely walks to venture down!
You will get a full sense of rural France, and the possibility to learn the language! Plus should English not be your first language, I will teach you. My English is exceptional, as I'm a consultant in Scientific Editing.
Just looking for some general house keeping, dusting, hoovering, window washing, and such! Some company and conversation! Nothing extremely strenuous!
My house is all open plan, but you would have your own room with en suite. I will cook for you, and believe me, I’m good!
I would expect you to keep your own space clean and tidy, plus i will not allow any smoking, not even in the vicinity!
I believe in no-waste, water, electricity and food! I'm very environmentally friendly!
This is a small rural town in northern France, hence not so much social life, but there are some great musical festivals nearby in the summertime! Plus many museums to visit! I thoroughly enjoy the antique markets every Sunday!
A great place to visit and experience small town villages in this area. I do have a couple of bikes that you can use.
As I said earlier, I'm into environmental issues trying to keep my waste down to a minimum!
Please only non-smokers.
Please I only accept requests in English, as my French is not up to standards, many thanks!
