  • Description


    We are a happy family of 4, Scottish dad, French mum and 2 daughters (7 and 5). We are looking for a dynamic, proactive and friendly au pair to come and stay with us in Gascony - SW France- this summer during their summer break.
    Our children speak both english and french and we would love to find someone who can play with them and help us during the day with things around the house and the big garden and vegetable patch! We also have a friendly dog, 5 chicken and a pet rabbit...!
    You will need to like the outdoors and not mind that we are in the countryside with not much city interaction! On your days off, there is plenty to visit by bus in the area, we have a spare car you can borrow, or if you d like to do things with us you are also very welcome!
    We will be happy to welcome the right person in our home to learn French and share the wonderful Gascony culture with us. Female candidates only, Thank you!
    We provide good food, all the house comfort you need, you ll have your own room and bathroom.
