We are a couple in our 30s living in a beautiful old farmhouse in the South of France who need help with our gite business and looking after our 14 month old boy/girl twins. There is plenty work for 2 people and we are looking for a couple as accommodation is in a small 1 bedroom house. We would consider all ages but we need people who are reasonably fit and outdoorsy and ideally non-smoking. French is not required but to get the most out of your free time an interest in learning would be useful!
Work:
We need flexible people as tasks are diverse and will vary from week to week. They will include:
- caretaking
- gardening and possibly animal care
- general maintenance
- DIY projects eg. painting, plastering, fencing, repairs
- childminding
- guest changeovers
- housework
Location:
Our 17th century farmhouse is located in the middle of the Haut Languedoc National Park, in 10 hectares of woodland on a South facing hillside surrounded by stunning landscape. We have our own pool and there is plenty of opporunity for outdoor activities in the area (sailing, hiking, riding etc). We are fairly isolated - the nearest shops are a 15 minute drive away in St.Pons de Thomieres so your own transport is essential).
The nearest airport is an hour away in Beziers (Ryanair fly there from Manchester, Luton and Bristol). Carcassonne and Toulouse airports are 2 hours away.
Accommodation:
The little house is newly renovated and separate from the main house. It has a small living room, kitchen (with bread oven!) and bathroom split across 3 levels. The bed is on a low
level mezzanine. You would have internet via a wifi dongle of 3GB a month and use of the swimming pool during Summer.
This is a unique and long-term opportunity for the right people so references and experience are essential. If interested please email your CVs and covering email including salary expectations for a 40 hour week.

Hello,
We no longer need a handyman but if anyone knows of someone who would like to look after our twins during weekdays and live in their own newly renovated detached gite please let me know.
thanks, Jemima

Hello

My husband and I came across your advert from last year and we were wondering on the off chance if you were seeking to recruit 2014/2015

We are both experienced house managers with a lot of knowledge and experience behind is, we have a can do attitude and happy to get our hands dirty, we don't have children but have experience in looking after them and spending time helping them learn new things

Our assignment here in port grimaud, Var region finishes on the 5th november, however we are very flexible with dates etc

Would you like me to email to you our up to date CV?

Thank you

Regards


Ali Welsh
