  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with four children Céleste aged 4, Allegra aged 6, Tancrede aged 7 1/2 and 6 month Éloi. My husband is a financial adviser and his office is at home. I used to work in publishing and now take care of the children.

    We live in a small village in Normandy, in a 18th century chateau. The nearest city is Argentan which is 15km away. We are surrounded by green land, our own forest and lakes where we swimm, we use a boat in the summer and fish. We have sheep and chicken as well as a big dog, an airdale. We try to do take care of a vegetable garden. We are a closely nit family and have all meals together, lunch and dinner. We are looking for somebody who is eager to become a family member and help together with an employee who does all of the tasks.

    We are restoring the second floor where there is lots of plastering and painting to be done. You will not be alone but assist somebody who already works for us. Ideally you understand a little bit of french. Required:

    - gardening
    - painting
    - plastering
    - general building help under supervision


    You will have your own room and bathroom, in a seperate floor so you can have your own quiet time when you need to.

    You can take French lessons from a lady in Argentan or have her come to the house to give you the lesson. Or you can simply learn from the children!

    We look forward to hearing form you!
