  • Description


    Hi, my name is Jane and I am English, my husband Alain is a well known French chef and we have a restaurant on the beach in St Clair, le Lavandou. As my husband is not a very good handy man, I need help with tasks I can't do alone. We have a Bastide that we are doing up near the little Provençal village of Cuers, and I am looking for help renovating the building - painting, mending, wood repairing and help in the garden.
    Our son Hugo is studying to be a wine maker and still lives at home, he is 18 so I don't need a babysitter. Hugo speaks English and French but my husband only speaks French so we speak French together!!
    Alain opens his restaurant in St Clair from Thursday until Sunday afternoon and we have a little house in Cavaliere. WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR HELP IN THE RESTAURANT as it is not allowed under French law! I am looking for someone who is easy going, adaptable, independent and who takes initiative. We rent the villa as much as possible so we sometimes have to move out at the last minute and go to Cavaliere.
    Please note that we are in the middle of the countryside about 3k from the village of Cuers and the nearest bar, so you must appreciate and love the countryside!!!
    We look forward to hearing from you.
