We are looking for an English native speaker who wants to help a little bit at home but mainly babysit, play and speak English to our children (9 1/2, 7 1/2, 4 1/2 and 2 years).

20 hours per week (schedule can be fixed according to your timetable, I'm not working). You have your own bedroom with private bathroom (and the amazing view) plus food.
You don't need to speak French, if you want to learn or/and improve, we will help!
We eat organic food, live in a nice area with a natural lake, perfect to hike, cycle,.. we have a cat, 6 lovely chicken, a giant garden.
I'm personally on a gluten free and dairy free Diet, this might be interesting for some people looking to go abroad but who have a specific diet that makes it more difficult.
We search for a big sister or brother. Someone who wants to share our life and bring a little of abroad in our home.

Hope to talk to you soon !

We hold a small family building company. Antoine is a carpenter and I handle paperwork and kids from home.

OUR PLACE:
It is an amazing silk manufacture with around 1000m2 of building to renovate and 2he of garden, so...there are plenty of things you could give us a hand with.

We are located in Ardèche, in the South of France, live in a beautiful place with view on the Ardeche mountains and are looking for a couple of helpers.
I am Sophie,( 53 years), and since five years, I have been running with Eric (63 years) who is retiring, a guest house in an old stone farm. Around 700 people come each year in our guest house. During the season we host 10 guests, are often 15 to 20 around the table (my children and their friends often come to visit, help and share, and we organize some pizza’s party or dinnar with our guests). In the mid season or winter it is quieter, and we are aiming at transforming this guest house into a place where people from differents generations live and work in harmony with spirit and nature. We are starting permaculture, wish to become as most self sufficent and sustainable as possible, and want to share our way of life with people via hosting helpers and guests and organizing seminars.

[Version française plus bas!]

Welcome to Aix les Bains!
I live in a big house with a garden. I have a local that I would like to transform in studio.
For this, I need volunteers with experience (or a strong training) in construction, plumber or carpenter.
Being a woman alone, and not speaking English, I'll be willing to welcome only francophone couples. Thank you in advance for understanding this!
I live 20mn walking distance from the harbour (Bourget natural lake), 20mn from the train station, and 15mn from the city center.
I'll ask you 4 working hours per week, or 5 with free weekend, in exchange of 3 meals a day, and a room in my house.
See you soon I hope!
