We are a family of 4 (mum, dad and two kids, 10 and 7). We have travelled the world and have settled for the time being in south west France. Sadly
My husband is having to work abroad at the moment to fund our projects here, and that leaves me little time to progress with the garden and DIY as I am a busy working mum.
We have a huge house and garden that we are improving with a view to eventually having a thriving business here.
We run a small gîte and are renovating a second one, so any help that you can offer would be greatly received.
Grass cutting, watering plants, weeding, painting, ironing and laundry, playing with kids, walking dogs, and basically anything that needs doing around the place on a daily basis.
I am not looking for people that need a great deal of guidance, I need self starters that work hard and can just fit in with the chaos that is our daily lives.
Driving would be good, if you have your own car, but it’s not totally necessary as the town we live in is pretty well equipped with all amenities.
