We are a Australian-British family of six living just outside of Azay le Rideau. We have four small children (6, 5, 2, and 10 months), and a big old manor house that sits in a huge park.
The house has been renovated, and very comfortable, but like on any large property there are always things to do. Specifically we are currently looking for people to help look after the children for a few hours each day, and to work in the garden (general maintenance - weeding, mowing etc, and construction of a new raised bed. We also need to prepare our wood for the winter).
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We speak English at the table, and the kids speak French to each other. If you want to practice French, or English, the kids are happy to adapt.
We live in a hamlet outside a lovely village. There is lots going on and bikes available for you to use.
We are looking for a couple or two friends to help us with babysitting and in the garden. We’d love someone with cooking skills also.
Spacious bedroom in our home and separate bathroom. We'll provide you with meals whilst you stay with us.
We are in a small hamlet, just outside of Azay le Rideau. We have spare bikes, so you can get around easily in your time off. Plenty of gorgeous chateaux, little villages, and the mighty Loire, are a short bike ride away.
Visitors to our region are outdoorsy people, looking for the beauty, tranquillity and culture of wine and food. Hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking and fishing opportunities can be found on our doorstep.
