  • Description


    We are a retired Parisian couple. We need help during our holidays in the south of France, a hundred kms from Toulouse, in Gers. We have there a big mansion, sort of chateau where in august we stay with children (adults), grand-children and friends. There is a swimming pool and at very, very large librairy as my husband tought Political Science and me French Litterature at Univerity.

    We may be up to 14 personns but everybody is helpful and full of conviviality. The house is in a small village, 20 kms from Auch, the main town in Gers and in august the weather is allways delicious. We mostly ask for cooking and tidying the kitchen after the meals everybody is having in the dining room in the evening and in the garden at lunch.

    Essentially cooking and shopping (a driver's license would be appreciated). Watering flowers and a little maintenance as always in a big house.

    Essentiellement la cuisine et les courses (un permis de conduire serait apprécié). Arrosage des fleurs et un peu d'entretien comme toujours dans une grande maison.
