Information du profil
We are a friendly Irish couple living with our little girl and baby boy in south West France. We have a little pet dog, a cat and two rabbits! I'm a language teacher (English/French) and my husband does property maintenance/renovation work. Our house is located on the edge of the small village in the Lot-et-Garonne. We have a lovely view of the countryside and surrounding area. It's very quiet and peaceful with lots of wildlife around. The area is surrounded by plum tree orchards and cherry trees, the greater area is known for its historic beautiful bastide towns (monflanquin/villereal/issigeac/Eymet).
We have just moved into the house and we need a bit of help around the house and garden: Inside: helping us unpack, store and organise our belongings and looking after the children and animals. Outside: Clearing the garden. We look forward to meeting you!

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
We would welcome you into our home and family. You would get a chance to see this beautiful part of France. You can go to the local markets and visit the historic Bastide towns for sight-seeing. There is lots of fresh country air and you can go on lovely walks around here, into the woods near to the house, through the plum tree orchards and around the local village which is just minutes from the house. We are both very social and enjoy meeting others as well as sharing french culture; food/wine with you. We love entertaining, we are happy to collaborate on cooking and planning the meals you'd like. We have a lot of books you are most welcome to read whilst you stay here and there is plenty of space to relax/meditate and soak up the atmosphere. We have a swimming pool you are very welcome to use - it's especially refreshing on a hot day! I can teach you and/or help you practice your languages: English/French/Spanish and you can join us in our peaceful country life here.

We are looking for a couple to give us a bit of help around the house and garden - primarily sorting through and helping us move into our new house and as well as tidying up the garden. We'd like you to help us to orgnaise and store our things as well as give a hand with the daily tasks around the house. It'd be great if you have experienced with children (our girl is 6 and our baby is 6 months) and our dog would love if you could take him for a little walk now and then ;) A little experience with gardening or DIY/basic construction would come in handy for odd jobs around the house. Our garden is large and a bit overgrown so we need help clearing and tidying it up. Above all it's just to lend a helping hand around the house and garden and be part of our family!
