  • Description



    A very laid back dad late in early thirties with two kids (3year + one year old). lives in a country house with cats, dogs/lots of chickens + ducks (200/300). loves eating/growing own stuff (including game).

    We rent both our house, which our helpers are based around Beuvrequen and another house (a 10 minute drive away in a beach town) out at weekends and for holidays. The mobile home is always for helpers.

    We have lots of experience with helpers from all over the world :)

    Looking for help ideally from a couple/ couple of friends for 20/25 hours a week Monday-friday. 7h30-9h30 + 16h30-18h30 roughly on days that the children are home (monday/Tuesday sometimes Friday), otherwise hours are flexible. babysitting, cleaning, cooking, feeding/caring for the animals, cutting wood, veggie patch, gardening, small maintenance jobs..

    In exchange for your time, we accommodation in our 2 bed mobile home in the middle of nature on our private fishing lake, a 5 minute walk from the house. You are more than welcome to swim or fish here!

    At least one of you must have a driving permit to take the children to school/pick up

    There are lots of lovely typical french towns and beaches to visit around here within walking/biking distance. You’re also welcome to fish. It’s a very quiet natural place to be but also really close to civilisation :)
    Unless you love walking a bike or car would be useful to get around, there isn’t much public transport here.
