WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE GIVING A HAND IN JANUARY AND FERBUARY, 2 MONTHS. INTERESTED?
we are a family of 4: Luisa (italian), Gilles (french), Alice (10 years old, double nationality) and Mattéo (almost 3 years old, still waiting for italian nationality). We also have a cat, Maia.
We are looking for someone giving a hand with kids and family life.
We are looking for someone staying with us at least 2- months (ideally un to 1 year!) and, we are sorry for you guys, my daughter prefers to be with a lady. I know this is completely politically uncorrect, but she is only ten, I hope you'll understand :)
We live in Nice, in the Côte d’Azur. It’s a beautiful, sunny place close to Villefranche-sur-Mer, and very well-connected with buses. It’s a family house with a separate studio in the garden, where the Workawayer room is situated.
Alice goes to school, which is 100 m from the house, and Matteo goes to the "nounou", 5 minutes away by car. The "nounou" is also called "family nursery", is a "licensed person" keeping up to 3 kids at her place (in France it is very common).
We love travelling and doing activities in the nature. We have a small boat in Villefranche, at 10 minutes from home. We also love the mountain, both in winter and in summer, seeing friends, have appetizers and barbecues.
Mom speaks Italian at home (but everyone answers in french, ahah). Matteo has only just started speaking but he understands both French and Italian (and loves mangle them). Ideally we’re looking for a workawayer who speaks a bit of Italian, so that mom can speak italian, Alice can improve it and Matteo can learn a little bit more. But this is not necessary! We also speak English (and mom speaks Spanish if needed).
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Travellers will be able to practice several languages (italian, french and eventually english and spanish) and will be immersed in a french-italian culture (which is very common here, being Italy 40 Km away :))
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for someone picking up kids at school at least twice a week and taking care of Alice on wendesdays (wednesday is not a school day in France) when we cannot work from home. Normal duties are: organizing their things and rooms (Alice still needs some help), giving MAtteo a bath, start preparing dinner (if we come back late from work) and give a hand with normal housecores (keeping kids toys and things organised and the kitchen, bathroom and livingroom tidy). In general we try to be back quite early in the evening so that we can stay with kids and prepare and have dinner all together. A couple of evening babysitting a month are also welcome.

We live at the first floor of a family house with a big garden and a swimming pool between Nice and Villefranche sur mer.
The workawayer will have a room in an independent "dependence" in the garden. Tha dependence is equipped with a bathroom and a kitchen/living room that we also use (mostly in summer).
The area where we live (Monaco to Cannes) is very nice, highly touristic and offering several cultural activities (museums, concerts, theatre), often organized by the municipality. If you like water activities, there are a lot of opportunities (swimming, scubadiving, apnea, stand up paddle, sailing, kayaking). If you like the mountain, it is less than an hour far from Nice. In less the two hours by car there are several ski resorts.
Nice is a nice town offering a lot from the cultural (and gastronomic :)) point of view. Where we live is the perfect place to discover both Nice and several other small towns such as Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu or Eze. Monaco is 30 minutes by car (there are several buses serving the littoral towns to Monaco and the train).
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
The room in the studio is equipped with a table and a perfectly working Wifi.
The pet should not be a danger for the kids and the cat. Also, several big dogs are in the neighbours' gardens (family), just to let you know :)
(MAXIMUM 25 hours a week) 1 full day a week (wednesday) and 3-4 hours 2-3 of the other four days of the week. Week end are free.
