I am the owner and Director of a French Language school here in Normandy. I live in the country about 40 minutes from the school and have a huge garden, horses, dogs and cats. I have to travel a lot for the business so would love some consistent dog and horse and cat sitters who would like to learn or improve their French, who like the country and can drive.

Normandy is a great place to visit. It s the birthplace of Impressionism. Paris is just an hour away by train and our local station has free parking. Rouen is a marvellous city as is Caen , Le Havre and then there is a wealth of delightful country towns, chateaux and markets to explore.
