We're a family of 5, originally from Belgium, newly settled in the South of France. We came here to enjoy the sun and have our children grow up around nature.
We are looking for motivated and energetic people to help us in the house, garden, swimming pool and/or with our 3 wonderful children.
To describe the help we need in more detail;
Help with the children, help around the house, with the renovation of some rooms (painting and more), gardening, swimming pool, cleaning and cooking.
We like proactive people quick and ready to learn with a happy disposition.
Our house has a beautiful view, a vegetable patch, a big garden, a swimming pool and is in a green environment at the entrance of the village of Le Pègue. A lot of walks, bike rides and hikes start at the house and will take you around the area to discover lavender, olive tree fields and vineyards. The Lance mountain is just behind our house and will give you a wonderful view point on the valley below!
We are also close to beautiful medieval villages and small cities, an hour away from Avignon.
