Hi - we are an Australian family of four with two kids, 8 and 10 years old. We live in a beautiful part of rural South West France with views over farmland and an ancient bastide village. We keep pretty busy with normal family things and enjoy having fun around our area and also travelling. We are looking for someone fairly independent who would like to live their own life but also share some time with us as a family.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Get to immerse yourself in real local France where you can find solitude or find fun within community groups and sports clubs.
We are looking for someone who is able to assist us with day to day housework, ideally around 3 hours each week day. This would include cleaning, some cooking if interested and a couple of hours baby sitting two evenings per week. From time to time, we would like you to be able to look after our two dogs and a cat when we go away.
We have just finished renovating a lovely fully self contained apartment for you to live in (about 70 square metres) - with a bathroom and kitchen of it's own. It has separate access for someone who is happy to live their own independent life and join us for some meals and outings. You will be shopping for yourself and making many of your meals in the fully equipped kitchen in the apartment.
In summer there are lots of night markets and fetes going on. Plenty of rivers for kayaking and a lot of walking trails - including the compostella trail which runs very close to our house. Many ancient French towns, chateaus and bastides to visit and modern sporting facilities within fairly easy reach.
