    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    English!! We speak English at home. We have French and English TV.
    Mum is very sporty so you can swim/run/ride/ maybe ski with her in the surrounding areas.
    Mum is chef specialising in vegan, gluten free and cakes. So you can learn some new kitchen skills.
    I am happy to introduce you to French culture too or you can discover it on your own. You will have access to a car so you are free to go out when you want.

    My house is large- 5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, and a 500 sq m garden (mostly lawn and olive trees). I'm looking for someone to aid with weeding in the garden, taking rubbish to the tip, occasionally walk my dogs, very minimal cleaning (Kitchen mostly) as I have a weekly cleaner, and pick up and drop off my sons sometimes. Very rarely I may ask you to cook for boys in the evening.

    Evenings you are free to do as you like- boys do not need babysitting anymore.

  • Accommodation


    Your own room. Not sure which one I will give you just yet! I am creating an extra shower room so if that is finished you will have a room on the ground floor with that shower. Otherwise you will have a bedroom upstairs with ensuite shower. We have options for single or double beds.

    I make dinner most evenings and happy to make food for you too if you wish. Breakfast and lunch you make yourself.
    Occasionally making dinner will be required (when I am not home).

    House has an 11m swimming pool in the garden.

    Shops are 1km away and pretty and lively large village (Valbonne) at 5 Minutes drive.

    You have a second car to use yourself when you are here.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will have a car to use and you must have a driving license in case i need you to collect the boys or drop them off.

    There is a bus service relatively near by but to be honest a car is easier!

    I have several bikes you can borrow as well- road and hybrid- pretty hilly around us!
