  • Description


    We are a bi-ligual (French and English) family of three. We live in a wooden house on the edge of the lively town of Pézenas in the heart of wine country. We are a 20 minutes drive from the Mediterranean coast and within easy access of rivers, lakes and rolling countryside. Known as the Ville de Moliére, Pézenas has a beautiful historic centre housing a variety of artist ateliers, restaurants and bars. I am an actor and Laurence is a make-up artist. Our youngest son Blaise is 16 and about to start home schooling. Our ideal candidate would be a first language Spanish speaker to provide converstional tuition although there is also plenty of work to do in the grounds ( gardening, building etc). Accommodation is an independant flat suitable for a single person, a couple or two friends.
