We are a small family of three, Mum and two boys living in rural france in a cute village. We like cycling, good food and our happy family life. I will be working as a waitress at busy lunchtimes and evenings all Summer and I need someone to care for the children in my absence, this will include (as they are older and mostly autonomous) preparing meals and clearing away after, movies, light housework and some family activities.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Rural France has many farmers markets and lovely places to visit nearby. It's peaceful and quiet and the village we live in has other children that my children play out with. The surrounding area is beautiful. We live in an old renovated bakery, the house is large and well equipped.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I am looking for childcare when I am working on lunchtimes and evenings. Some light housework and meal preparation will be needed.
This host offers a language exchange
The children are learning Spanish so any opportunity for them to speak Spanish would be welcomed.
Private large double ground floor bedroom with en-suite.
The towns of Angouleme and Poitiers are both 45 minutes away and Beautiful Bordeaux is 90 minutes by car. Also the Atlantic coast and La Rochelle are less than 2 hours away. Locally there is a lovely forest, lakes and beautiful countryside walks, it's great for cycling and you have access to road and mountain bikes with us.
This is a family home, it's busy when the children are here and we enjoy family meals together. The children do chores and everyone is expected to clear up after themselves and be thoughtful about others living in the home.
