Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
If you come to our family we speak English at home, and you can learn French in the community or with our girls (they are bi-lingual), but ideally you will have some French already. You will also have time to explore this beautiful area of the world.
We need some help to look after the girls predominantly in the summer holidays, I am a caterer so have unusual hours and my husband works mainly from home, but is sometimes away. We would in an ideal world like someone’s whomcan speak French already, so the girls can talk in French with you.
You will have a studio with a double bed, shower, toilet and basin. You will be very welcome to come and join us for all our meals, or make your own as you wish. We live in the countryside about 20 min walk to the nearest village, we have the forest and olive groves on 2 sides so it is important you are happy in the countryside.
We are able to take you to the station if you wish to explore further afield. if you are a mountain biker we are surrounded by trails, good for road biking too. There is lots to explore in the region.
