    Family of 4: 2 children a boy 5 years old and a girl 4 years old. Gilles works at home, and Cristelle is looking for a new job.

    A big house (200m2) with a big garden (1500m2).
    3 lovely cats.

    A room to offer in exchange of services in the house like:
    - taking care of the children: drive them to school and pick them up after schools. Play with them and give them the bath sometimes.
    - some babysitting,
    - some help in the house (1-2 hours per day) like cleaning windows, washing machine, or cook...
    - some works in the house and/or the garden (if the person likes that)
    The aim for us is to get help with the "every day" tasks with the kids and house works. And for kids to get used to english language (our boy already understand it and starts to speak).

    This person could enjoy spending time with us, and discover the south of France.
    Only few hours to help per day, or babysitting for example, saturday evening (they both sleep all night) and sunday morning.

    During the day, the kids are at school the helper will be free to manage his/her time as wanted (as long as tasks expected are done).

    We are looking for someone that understand basic french, to understand when the kids need something or in case of problem when we are not here...
    And have a drivers license

    We can be flexible for the stay duration as well as the rest. But it won't be less than 6 months. Don't contact us if you want to stay only few weeks...

    We have 3 cats so the person shouldn't be allergic...
