  • Description


    We're a family of 5. Mother, (Claire, speech therapist), father (Matthieu, self-employer landscape gardener), 2 daughters (Thaïs, aged 10 and Soane, aged 6) and a son (Fahé, aged 8).
    We live in a small town with 9000 inhabitants in the south of France, 30 kilometers far from Toulouse (several buses can get you to and back from Toulouse every day).
    We have a nice house with a large garden. We have plenty of space and can provide you with your own separate accommodation (bedroom, bathroom and a sitting-room with a small kitchen).
    Saint-Lys is also idealy located : 1H30 away from the Mediterranean Sea, 1h30 away from the Pyrenees (where we own a tiny house and where you can hike, ski... while discovering magnificent panoramas), 2 h away from the Atlantic Ocean, 30 minutes away from Toulouse (great and beautiful city, rich in cultural events, many places and museums to discover..)
    Saint-Lys also offers you all you may need in terms of necessities ; library, shops, market (every tuesday morning....)
    I, Claire, works 20 minutes away from home (on the way to Toulouse) and can manage to get free time if needed as I am self-employed. Matthieu goes to Toulouse several days a week and can get you there if you want to. Our children go to the local school which is 5 minutes drive from our home.

    We intend to ask you to help us about 4 to 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (you may decide which days you'd like to work) We'd mainly like you to look after our children (and possibly pick them up from school) 3 hours a day (playing games, doing the homework, ....) and speak english to them during the meantime. We'd also like you to help us with domestic chores like house-cleaning, cooking, feeding the cat (and the two hens we've newly acquired!)...
