Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

just a quick word of welcome and a few indications: I am looking for an au pair to take care of my 12 year old son. My 16 year old daughter, who lived with us until this summer, decided to spend a year with her mother 2 hours by car from Aix, near Montpellier. She will come every other weekend, as well as for vacation periods. Arlo and I live with an Australian Shepherd named Astro who is a very funny and very clever 2 year old dog!
Aix en Provence is a university city of around 140,000 inhabitants. It is served by train in the city center. There is also the TGV station at 20 min by bus and Marseille Marignane airport at 30 min. Marseille is 30 minutes by bus or train. To get around town, there is a bus service outside the door.
There will be available, a bike ... or rollerblades! Arlo is also riding an overboard… Notice to fans!
And if you have a driving license, I will give you the keys to a Volkswagen van if necessary.
We also have a country house in the Luberon, an hour from Aix, where it will be possible to stay solo from time to time.
