  • 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 10 and twins aged 8 (boy and girl). We lived 15 years in Paris, and decided recently 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. During the week, we encourage the kids (after they finish their homework) to read books, draw, play board games... 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, five days a week. We can accommodate the days according to your needs and ours. We love to spend the weekends with our kids, so 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.

    We would appreciate help in cleaning, baby-sitting and teaching the kids English. We would be cooking and shopping, unless you have special dishes you want to share with the family :))

    Our kids are young and we have 2 daughters, so we prefer girls for the position.

    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, tram or bike (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). The tramway stop is at 10 minutes walking distance from the house (10 minutes ride). By bike, the city center is reachable within 10 minutes.

    We are a non-smoking house.
