    Description

    Our family is in a transition. Moving from Oman to a yet to be determined location.

    This summer we have the privilege of house sitting our friends country house in Normandie, which has an incredible main house with large gardens and we will be running the guest house for our time there.

    Ash (mommy) is an American who enjoys yoga, surfing and pretty much anything outside. Nic who is an Englishmen, former Army guy and serial Entrepreneur ready for adventure all the time. He enjoys geeking out on Seaweed and the global startup world. Magnus & Rex, are our 1& 2 year old boys. They are 15 months apart and are both very energetic and have many hilarious things to say or do. They love football (soccer) and learning new skills. Together we love to travel and meet interesting people from around the world.

    We are looking for someone to help look after the children, do a bit of cleaning, gardening (if you'd like) and evening cooking. The main goal for our workaway request is giving Nic and I space to spend time looking for what is next in our lives.

    Looking for someone who could give us 3 hours a day to do job searching or personal growth time so the workaway working hours would be either in the morning or early evening. This could work for someone with a flexible remote job, student, or retiree. Prior child care work experience is required. You will have your own bedroom and semi private bathroom.

    There is great cycling at our footsteps. Easy walking trails. We will no doubt taking you to our favorite Cidre mill and probably beaches in Normandy. If you'd like to head to Paris or anywhere else via train, we'd be happy to take you to the station. If it's better to do that in the week, we'd just ask that you help out more on the weekend then.

    Transport- trains from Paris will get you close. The stop is L'Agile. Or you can take a blabla car for the most cost effective way to get there.
