  • Description


    Hi, we are a family with two children aged 5 and 8

    We are looking for a workawayer to take care of our children while we are at work for and with us as soon as any possible!

    We'd like from you to speak mainly english with our children, but if you come to learn french, with us adults you get to learn and speak french as well. Our homeschooled children have a lot of activities all day long and it would be amazing if you could help them doing all the activities in english.
    A car is a plus because we live at the country side and even by bike everything might be far but we will pay you the bus and invite you for trips in the mountains or to the beach if you stay longer than a month.
    We will even pay you professional french lessons if interested. Every weekend from friday noon on you're free to do what you want. The working plans are irregular and we tell you week by week when we need you. You're invited to spend the rest of the day with us and share the meals but if you want to do your thing once you finished you can.

    We Elaia, Saé, Jessica, Romuald will be delighted to welcome you in our home.
    We expect a good mood, to be smiley, conviviality and like the nature and the country side, too.

    We look forward to hearing from you.
    Best regards.

    There will be no household to do as such: you will have to maintain the bathroom you occupy, your room, the children's room and put away the activities after you have finished them.

    If you want to show us your culture or cuisine, you can do so but it is not compulsory.

    I will be happy to teach you French and even semi-French cooking.

  • Accommodation


    We live in the south of France in the region called Nouvelle-Aquitaine, more precisely in the south of Les Landes.
    We are located at the countryside next to a small village of 200 inhabitants, 15 km east of Dax, the nearest town.
    We live between the beach and the mountains, which makes it a pleasant place to spend time here. It's more quiet in winter, more festive in summer.
    We have a house of 120 m² on a plot of 3000 m² consisting of a vegetable garden, a small yard in development.
    The house has 3 bedrooms, an office, a bathroom, living room, dining room and kitchen.
    You will be accommodated in a room with all the necessary equipment (bed, desk, sheet, blanket, ...)
    The bathroom will be shared with the children of the family who will sleep next to your room.

    What else ...

    Your activities revolve around our children's activities. They have many activities: horse riding, swimming pool, violin and many others...
    We look after the vegetable garden and the orchard.
    We also do some family gatherings.
    The girls are educated in the family.
    We are vaccinated against the coronavirus and our vaccinations are up to date. We don't expect you to be vaccinated but in france it is mandatory to be for many activities so you have to know that without the vaccination you're not as free as with it.
