We are a French/British family, living in the French Alps with two wonderful little girls or 7 and 1 year old. We live in a large house in the country side, with a big garden, only a 15 minute drive from the nearest main town, Annecy. The region it stunning, with plenty to do for anyone with an interest in being outdoors.
Both myself and my partner work from home running a marine conservation charity that we set up in the Philippines.
Help around the house
As mentioned above, this is a great location for anyone who loves the outdoors. You can do everything here - hiking, biking (off/on road), watersports (Annecy is on the lake), paragliding, horseriding etc etc. Assuming you have a license, we will be able to provide a car to use on some occasions so you can travel a little further (this will obviously be when it's not otherwise needed. Most of the time, no problem, but I cant guarantee it always!)
The other benefit you can get from this is to work on your french! We are a bi-lingual family... so plenty of opportunity to speak both English and French!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are a nomad family, going away for the summer (yeah!!), and need a little help tidying the house and the garden before we go!! Gardening, fixing things, "deep cleaning" of rooms (cobwebs, etc 😂) - nothing too serious but a little help would go a great way!
We have two young daughters (8 and 2) who love having visitors in the house :-) So someone comfortable with kids is great too!
