Help in the house
You will have the opportunity to learn new skills and improve your existing skills related to home and garden maintenance and childcare while having the opportunity to live on a spatious property with a laid back and easy going French family. You will also be able to improve your language skills in French .You can enjoy living in a beautiful region in France, have the opportunity to explore the local area, and take in the culture and sites.
Every day is a little different but there are many tasks that go with the general upkeep of our house. These tasks include cooking, cleaning, helping organizing, dusting and vacuuming throughout the house but most importantly staying with our child when we are doing something else in the house like playing with him...
Obviously you are not expected to do all of the above everyday, we work together to get the jobs done so there will be 2 or 3 of us taking care of the days work together. When we are busy with other work we will get you started for the day and leave you to it but help as much as possible and are always available to answer questions.
You will be part of our family so not expected to do anything completely on your own, high energy and enthusiasm are the most important assets you can bring!

This is a wonderful escape to the French countryside and way of life.

This region is second in tourism in France behind only the Cote D'Azur so there are many things to do in the area from beaches and surfing to castles and wine tasting and everything in between.
Please bear in mind that even though we're not far from many bigger towns and cities (La Roche sur Yon, Bordeaux, Nantes and La Rochelle to name a few), this is a small country village so if you're looking for more of the bustling city life with lots of people around all the time then this definitely isn't for you.
