We're looking for one helper, for the rest of summer as from August 10.
We're a more or less vegetarian non-smoker international family of 6 (Peruvian mother & French-Belgian Dad) (parents, three kids (now 14, 16 and ... 23) plus grand-father.
We live 10 km South of Annecy in the French Alps in a stunning environment, 7 min by bike from the shores of "our" lake, 45-minute drive from Geneva. Ours is a residential suburb somewhere between urban and country, in a place called Saint Jorioz.
The best way to get here is by train or flying in through Geneva then travelling by bus to Annecy.
Our home consists in some sort of chalet, with a panoramic view of the mountains. The lake of Annecy known for its clear waters is really enjoyabe in summer.
There is lots to do in the way of hiking, biking, slacklining, in-line skating (we have one of the longest cycling track in France), swimming, paragliding, water sports, along with a host of cultural activities and the medieval picturesque Annecy old town. We have several bikes at home that can be used to get around.
We enjoy languages. At home we speak mainly French and some Spanish. We also have a good command of English. We love animals such as our lovely dog Lilou.
If possible we would like our guest to speak English or Spanish or German to the kids, but we're open.
The house needs repainting outside (no specific skill required other than good will) and the garden begs maintenance. Overall tasks would really be a mixted bag, mostly on the easy side. Work is requested from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. after which our helper is free to relax and enjoy free time.
Come and stay with us for some weeks you won't regret it. We don't bite.
Hope to hear from you soon
