We are looking for a French speaker with decorating experience to paint the exterior of our house and to help us to improve our conversational French.

We are Rosemary (a teacher), Dan (an engineer) and our daughter Imogen, who is 16 years old.

Rosemary is taking lessons in French and Imogen is studying it at school, so having a guest who will provide 3 hours of French conversation per day would be much appreciated.

Our home, Belmont Cottage, is a detached house in a pretty village called Headley in the North-East part of Hampshire, with shops, a church and two pubs.

Headley is about 1 hour away from London which makes it very convenient for a day trip to its many theatres, shops and sights.

We are within 5 kilometers of spectacular beauty spots such as The Devils Punch Bowl, Waggoners Wells and Ludshott Common.

Great Frensham Pond, which is also about 5 kilometers from us, is popular for sailing and swimming and has a sandy beach which is a perfect spot to visit in Summer.

Other local sights include Jane Austens house at Chawton, the Watercress Line preserved railway between Alton and Alresford and National Trust houses (chateaux) such as Petworth, Uppark, Hinton Ampner and Polesdon Lacey.

The cities of Portsmouth, Winchester and Guildford are all within easy reach.

You will be treated as one of the family and we hope you will have a lovely time here.
