  • Description

    Description

    We live in Montpellier, a beautiful and lively city in the South of France. We work from our home offices (web and graphic design). We have three easy-going kids, a girl aged 15 and twins aged 12 (boy and girl). We lived 15 years in Paris, and decided a few years ago to be closer to the sun and the sea. In the weekends we love to go to kids-friendly-festivals and museums with our kids. As a family, we are into cultural activities: art, dance, music (piano, guitar), drawing, acting. The house has a garden and the neighborhood is very quiet, though we are close to the city center.

    Help

    We need 4 hours of help per day, five days a week. We can accommodate the days according to your needs and ours.

    — We would appreciate help in cleaning the house;
    — And help in giving language lessons to the kids, primarily English, but it could also be Spanish or Arabic.
    — Or help in giving coding lessons to the kids if you are an engineer or into math.

    We love to spend the weekends with our kids and we don't usually need help on Saturdays and Sundays, so you are free to do your own program on weekends to go and discover Montpellier and its region. There are buses that go to many beautiful cities close-by, we can tell you which ones. And if we are doing a program in the weekend that speaks to you, you can come along, we have a seven-seats car!

    What else ...

    We live in a house with a garden, in a very quiet neighborhood. The beautiful and very lively city center of Montpellier can be reached very easily by bus or tram (about 10-15 minutes away from home). The sea and its beautiful beaches can be reached with the tram (40 minutes tram and 15 minutes walk). Closer to the house, a little “château” and its beautiful park are 10 minutes away.

    We are close to the city center. The bus stop is at 2 minutes walking distance from the house (10 minutes ride to the city center). The tramway stop is at 10 minutes walking distance from the house (15 minutes ride to the city center).

    We are a non-smoking house.
