We are a French family of 4, myself Magalie (I'm a beautician), Loic (a banker) Lucie (9 years old) and Juliette (7 years old) We also have a dog, a cat, sheep and a goat who are all part of our family. We live in the countryside outside of Pau in the South West of France an hour from the Pyrenees and an hour from the Atlantic coast.
Babysitting / child care
Our home is ideally situated as it's only an hour from the Pyrenees and an hour from the coast for resorts such as Biarritz and Saint Jean de Luz. We live 20 mins from the beautiful city of Pau with its château, many bars, cafés, restaurants, shops and museums. We are happy to invite you into our home in order for you to experience the French way of life with us.
We are looking for a native English-speaking babysitter for a week at the end of August (27th to the 31st) who will work at home 4 mornings a week from 8am to 1pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with Wednesday and the weekend as free days. We would prefer a kind, caring, calm and motivated woman who has already had some experience with looking after young children and who will be able to talk to, and play with, our daughters in English. You will have your own bedroom and a shared bathroom and the possibility of getting a lift to the nearest bus stop for buses into Pau and train links for further afield.
