    UPDATE: THE POSITION FOR 2024 HAS NOW BEEN FILLED. WE ARE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2025 ONLY.
    ===========
    Hello!

    We're an anglo-franco family living in a small village in the beautiful Dordogne countryside.

    We run a small restaurant with rooms in our home and are looking for an experienced, energetic, reliable and motivated waitress/waiter with a good level of both English & French to support us during the busy summer period


    We live in the very beautiful, but very rural countryside, so it's important you like the outdoors, nature, walking etc and ideally have your own transport (for you to get around on your time off).

    If you think you could be a good fit for our team, we would love to hear from you!

    Gemma, Raphaël & Louis
