We are a family of five - two adults and three children. Our two daughters are seven-years-old and five-years-old and our son is one-year-old. We moved to France last year from the UK to live in a beautiful hamlet in the Ariége in a magical old tobacco mill. We're very friendly and open and know you would like us!
Our main need is for someone with a drivers license to help with the school drop-off and pick-up four days a week using our car.

We are from London but we moved to France last year because we wanted our three children to learn French and to experience the French culture. They're attending the local French school but having someone speak French to them at home would be a great benefit. Also, we have a large, beautiful garden if that our traveller could work in if they are interested to do so.
The Ariege is a haven for outdoor mountain activities. The walking and trekking options are almost endless, and whilst there are not the highest Pyrenean peaks in this region, there are some stunning routes that keen walkers would be foolish to miss. One advantage of the Ariege is that the road network goes fairly high, allowing people to walk to the highest peaks in a day trip.
One of the parents travels extensively for work so when they're away, we would need help with the school drop-off and pick-up four days a week (total time of 2 hours per day) plus the occasional help with the shopping which means a full driving license would be necessary. In exchange, we would offer three meals a day and a private suite to stay in.
