  • Description


    We live in a beautiful, small commune in the Charente and run a busy restaurant. The village is located 15 minutes from 2 larger towns and there is a lovely lake and clubhouse within a 30 minute walk.

    Our family consists of myself, my husband, our 2 daughters (13&11), jack the dog and 2 cats!

    We are renovating our 17th century house so it isn't quite finished but almost there! A former nunnery, its bursting with original features and history.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our village is quiet and peaceful, full of friendly locals and visitors alike. As we have a restaurant it's the perfect place to meet new people (if you want too!).

    We have good train links into bordeaux and Angoulême, both beautiful cities with lots to see. There are plenty of forest walks, bicycle trails nearby to explore.

    There is a beautiful lake 5 minutes from our house which has a beach and clubhouse.

    Out children speak fluent French and English so there is the opportunity to learn the language from them.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to help with general housework (washing, ironing, cleaning), walking/feeding the dog and preparing dinner for the girls. It’s not an extensive list of jobs and would be done in less than the 4-5 hours a day stated.

    The girls are easy going and very much self sufficient, but during summer we are very busy and would like help just with general day to day jobs that take up our valuable rest time!
