  • Description

    Description

    We are Alice and Lital, a couple of women with 3 kids (18 months, 7 and 13 years old)

    We live in a big house in Normandy (100km from Paris, 150km from the sea) with a big garden, with fruits and vegetables.
    We both work mainly from home, and enjoy everyday life in the countryside.

    We are fond of nature, travelling, art, food... and we enjoy welcoming visitors and friends to share our lifestyle.

    Alice is a fashion designer, and passionate about food (see aliceroca.com)
    Lital is very involved in an "alternative school" that opened in September 2021, that welcome kids from 3 to 12 years old.

    We try to develop an ecological consciousness to our kids, to limit waste, and to eat local and organic...

    With the birth of our baby in 2020, we need more help for general maintenance of the house (dishes, cleaning, cooking), but also gardening, babysitting (especially when one of us is away for work for example), or help in our personal and professional projects (depending on the timing and your skills of course).
    All the tasks are simple and will adapt with your skills and preferences.

    We speak French of course, we are fluent in English, and Lital speaks Hebrew.

    Appart from helping us and enjoying the warm atmosphere of our home, you can enjoy our countryside landscapes, spend some time in Paris, visit Normandy beaches...

    We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Alice, Lital and the kids.
