  • Description


    We are a South African family of four that live in the south west of France in the countryside and need help with the cleaning of our house, grass cutting and sometimes babysitting our kids who are 7 and 11 years old. They speak English, French and Afrikaans. We will teach french/ English lessons as I am a qualified teacher. We live close to a lot of very touristic places and we have an extra bicycle and if you need to use our twingo to drive somewhere we will make our car available for you when we don’t use it as we live in the french countryside. We have a swimming pool and jacuzzi that you can use too. Our house and vineyard is situated in a very calm area so it’s perfect for running, cycling, swimming and walking in nature. We are social people and have friends over or go to friends over the weekends. The closest shop is 7 km away and the train station is 20 km away. Brive-la-Gaillarde is our closest train station and airport it’s 20 km from our house. We have a self catering business and I’m a teacher and my husband is a psychologist who works from home. Our kids are 7 and 11 years old and very easygoing. We love meeting new people. We have a cat. He is very calm and kind.
