  • Description


    Hi there, only minimum 2 months stay and with driving license please. Thanks!

    - YOU WILL NEED: to help out extensively with the daily household routines (house cleaning, laundry, cooking, tidy up, assist the kids), to fool around and drive the kids to their sports and music activities, to understand French, be a non-smoker, have a driving license (manual gears)

    - YOU WILL GET: fluent in French as we will teach you, get a lot of free time while the kids are at school, live in a beautiful new villa with a large pool in the countryside, enjoy the sun and great walks, have a good internet connection...

    We are a French-speaking family with 2 children (9 year old boy and 7 year old girl). We live in the beautiful and charming village of Cotignac in Provence in the South of France. Our kids go to the local school and speak French, but we also speak English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Danish :-)

    We are looking for an efficient extra pair of hands for the kids and for taking care of our home, cleaning the house and the daily routine. You speak some French and can drive a car with manual gears in France.

    We really enjoy meeting different cultures and exchanging with persons having diverse life projects, and appreciate having an extra hand with the day to day logistics and support with kids (playing, cooking, housekeeping). Help will be needed morning and mainly end afternoons around 5.30pm to pick up the kids at school, play and study with them, prepare dinner and help putting things nicely in order.

    We have travelled extensively before having children and thus like multi-cultural environments and speak several foreign languages.


    Nous sommes une famille avec 2 enfants (9 ans et 7 ans) et habitons dans la belle Provence, dans le village de Cotignac. Les enfants vont à l'école locale et nous parlons aussi anglais, italien, espagnol, portugais et danois :-)

    Nous aimons partager le quotidien avec une personne énergique, qui sait nous aider à gérer la logistique des enfants, le ménage et le quotidien de la maison. Nous avons besoin d'un coup de main efficace et indépendant pour les enfants, le rangement et le ménage.

    La personne idéale comprend le français, aime s'amuser avec les enfants, est autorisée à conduire en Europe, aime cuisiner, et apprécie de garder une maison propre et rangée.

    Nous sommes une famille pleine de joie et de bonne humeur, et adorons la diversité, le sport et la musique! :-)
