2 1/2 hours from Johannesburg, we have a beautiful farm two lovely kids. Real country lifestyle with amazing property. We are looking for a French speaking Au Pair to assist with Mia and Jandre who is 4 and 5 years old, but predominantly to speak and teach them French.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
There is lots to see and do in the area and a real cultural gem of South Africa.
If you love children and you have a passion for French, we would love Mia and Jandre to be assisted in speaking the language. There is lots of wild animals on the farm like Giraffes, Kudus, Zebras and lots of antelope and we guarantee a fun time! You do not have to be a professional teacher but we need someone to take a few hours per day to teach them the basics and communicate with them.
You will be staying in a lovely apartment which is connected to our main house. Full kitchen, privacy and your own terrace.
We are a very close and small family (1 Grandmother, and my sister who is the mother of Mia and Jandre), so family dinners are done typically South African style. BBQ's happens frequently and the farm is big enough to enjoy with lots of freedom with open spaces, bush and lots of water everywhere. I live in Nice, France and look after my sister and mother with the two children's needs. Seeing that I am based in France and learning French I would love the children to also speak the language.
Although we are 10 minutes away from the closest town my mother goes very often and trips will be possible if you need to go otherwise. There is transport available.
Expect to sit around burning camp fires very frequently and enjoy the sounds of real Africa. Because we are 2 hours from Johannesburg, we can discuss a pick up from the airport which might be possible, depending on availability.
