  • Description


    Hello !
    We are a family of 5, my husband Charles, I (Marie), and our three children (2 boys of 8 and 4, and a 7 month old baby girl).
    We are looking for an ENGLISH NATIVE SPEAKER only as we're trying to teach our children English.
    We'll be spending August on holiday, in a period house by the sea, in Vendée (plage du Veillon, near Talmont-Saint Hilaire) and we are looking for help with our children, from AUGUST 5th TILL AUGUST 28th.

    From the house, you can walk or ride a bike to the nearest village (Port Bourgenay). You can walk to the beach. But there isn't much to visit in the area other than that, so it would rather be a relaxing beach holiday. The house is large and lovely. There would be my parents, brothers and sisters, nephews, so you would need to be comfortable with a big party...
    We are looking for an outgoing person, well-behaved, proactive, comfortable with children and babies.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Marie & Charles and their children : Gaspard, Augustin and Iris.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very keen to learn anything about English-speaking culture and vocabulary. We are fond of cultural exchange. Plus you would benefit from wonderful surroundings and nice French cooking :-)
    My Dad (who owns the house) is a lawyer and a scholar. I am a translator, and my husband is a jeweller.
