Charente France
One parent family
We are an English family who has just moved to France. Country Walks, drawing, eating out sometimes, swimming are some of our enjoyable hobbies. The children enjoy art and craft. My children love to play outdoors and are easily pleased.

We are an ENGLISH FAMILY and we are a warm loving family who have just sadly lost a wonderful father and husband. This is why we need extra help now. We live in the beautiful French Charente countryside and enjoy a large country home and garden. We need you because I am a very busy mother who needs help to run my home and care for my children. I am a well educated young woman and I enjoy teaching so would be happy to support your learning. We live a country life style and enjoy our garden, pets and outdoors. Although there is a small town near by with shops and cafes. The beautiful surfing beaches of the Charente Maritime are a short  1hr drive. The town of Angouleme is only 35mins away with restaurants, shopping and night life. We have plenty of land and in the summer a pool. Life is quiet here so you would need to be an outgoing person happy to make new friends. We look forward to meeting you!
