  • Description

    Description

    - YOU WILL NEED: to stay at least a couple of months, to fool around and play with the kids, to understand French, be a non-smoker, have a driving license, and help out with the household (cleaning, cooking, tidy up, assist the kids, etc).

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


    We are a French-speaking family with 2 children (8 year old boy and 6 year old girl). We live in the beautiful and charming village of Cotignac in the South of France. Our kids go to the local school and speak French, but we do speak English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Danish :-)

    We are looking for an efficient extra pair of hands for the kids and for helping out 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 (8 ans et 6 ans) et habitons dans la belle Provence, dans le village de Cotignac. Les enfants vont à l'école locale et nous parlons 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 autorisé 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.
