  • Description


    We are Yann and Valérie, parents of 2 boys : Camille (11 years old) and Arthur (8 years old). Yann is a sound engineer in theater and travels during tours in France and abroad. I am upholsterer in seat furnishings starting my business and work at home.
    To help us organize our family life, we are looking for someone who can take care of the children in the morning and accompany them to school and pick them up in the evening and prepare the meals. We need help to order the house a little bit. We are looking for someone who has a good basis in French (no beginner) because it seems important to us that the person can communicate with children easily. Camille and Arthur are dynamic and playful so we look someone who enjoy play with children and full of energy.
    We wish you feel like family member, feel home with us.
    We provide a renovated independent studio and offer to share our meals with the family.
