Couple Role | St Remy de Provence

4500 Euros Net / Month

 

A live-in couple are required to work in an 8-bedroom, stylish Provençal farmhouse set in an olive grove, that is located close to Saint Remy de Provence, in B' du Rhone, France.

The clients expect the house to be run like clockwork and for everything to be looked after carefully. 

Duties must be shared equally between the couple. At least 1 of the couple must speak French and English. Ideally both should drive, although it would be possible to consider couples where only 1 drove (one of the essential duties is to manage Airport runs).

Candidates should present friendly, approachable and flexible characters / dispositions, combined with a "can do" attitude and a hospitable, caring nature which allows them to instinctively ensure that every guest has a pleasurable and memorable stay!

There is a staff car provided for business purposes, but candidates would need their  own car for personal use.

A lovely 2-bedroom private cottage is provided for this couple. 

Usually working Monday - Friday, but when the clients are in residence weekend work may be required.
