  • Description


    We have 3 kids, age 8, 6 and 3 and we live in the heart of Provence, one hour away from Nice, Cannes, Aix or Marseille, 30 minutes from the Gorges du Verdon.
    We need a hand with the kids and keeping the house in order and would in exchange be glad to welcome you.
    You will have your own car and French phone, and free days between 8 am and 4 pm except for Wednesday during school year (summer holidays are between July 6th and end of September). Lots of things to do and see around if you feel like it. Horseriding, kayaking, climbing, hiking among others.
    If you enjoy outdoors, life in the countryside and in a cute village of provence, this is for you.
    If you're looking for bars, parties and socializing with people your age, it will be a bit more complicated but you can always occasionally drive to Aix for the week end for exemple.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband and I have grown up in France and travelled extensively abroad. We love cultural exchange and have strongly benefited from it in the past, having lived and worked in the US, the UK, and South East Asia.
    Our 3 kids will be a great immersion in a typical french family, and we have already welcome several workaways or aupairs in the past.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to help look after our 3 kids, who are 8 years old, 6 years old and 3 years old. Arthur, Castille and Oscar all go to school. Daily life, breakfast, getting ready for school, picking up, driving them to activities, playing, getting ready for bedtime, etc.
    Help is needed usually one hour from 7 to 8 in the morning and then from end of school until bedtime (5 to 8pm).
    Planning will be a bit different during their summer break starting in July.
