Hello travellers !
We are a family of 4, living in the beautiful countryside region of the Lot in southern France. I live here full time with my kids and work over the summer months when the tourist season kicks in. My husband works abroad and comes back as often as he can. Our two children, Louis 10 and Tristan 7, go to the local school. I am looking for someone interested in helping me out with daily chores (cleaning and tidying etc), gardening (if that is your thing), but more importantly to help out with the kids (play, homework, meals, driving them to their various activities).
Our house is a charming old stone farmhouse that we painstakingly renovated over many years. It has 4 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, garden and land surrounding the house, and a pool in summer.
You will have your own independent room with your own bathroom. To keep busy in your free time, you can go on splendid, breathtaking walks or use our bikes to go on bike trails. During summer, our swimming pool is up and running and available to use, or alternatively you can go river swimming at some of the majestic spots scattered down the river. Bird watching or fishing are main hobbies here. A car can also be made available for you to use to get around (manual gear).
You can be a part of the family if you want, or you can be independent during your free time.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Practice your language skills (French and English), learn to cook Indian food (I am half-Indian and cook a lot of Indian food), explore this gorgeous region, learn to interact with kids.
I am also a registered counselling psychologist and can offer free counselling sessions of an hour a day for those who are interested.
I am looking for someone interested in helping me out with daily chores (cleaning and tidying etc), gardening (if that is your thing), random DIY projets or small repairs, but more importantly to help out with the kids (play, homework, meals, driving them to their various activities, taking them fishing or bike riding etc). The kids have long days in school so I am looking for help in the mornings or evenings, and on their days off (Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays). The rest of the time, help out with gardening or repairs (if this is something you enjoy) or simply enjoy your time off. The hours are not gruesome, but no more than 25 hours per week.
You will have your own independent room with your own bathroom. All rooms are big and comfortable and full of light. Of course, all three meals are offered.
Apart from the above mentioned activities, this regions is abundant with things to do; castles, caves, museums, hiking on the trail of St Jacques Compostelle, beautiful medieval villages perched in mountains, local rustic villages, local markets, river fun. I can provide you with plenty of information, maps etc.
