Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are Marguerite, Christopher, Marlow and Bambi. We live in a wooden cabin in Cap Ferret in the south west of France just a few meters from the bassin d'Arcachon in a little fishing village. The views from our cabin are incredible.
It is 2 minutes by car to the nearest supermarket, bakery and other shops. Otherwise in 10 minutes or so you can make the journey by bicycle.

Job Description

Marlow starts school and attends 4 days a week from 08:30 until 16:30. Bambi will be attending Creche on the same days for the same hours. It will be your job to drive them there and pick them up as Marguerite does not have a driver's license. It is essential you have a driver's license. After creche you will be expected to do some activities with Marlow, prepare dinner and do bath time. You will have him for full days at the weekend when Christopher is away with his band.
We are hands on parents and don’t have traditional jobs where we work 9-5. That means we are often present and strike up a balanced way of caring for our children with the au pair.

Marlow generally wakes up at 8 has lunch at 12, quiet time after lunch, an afternoon activity and snack, has bath at 18h30, dinner at 19h00 and goes to bed at 20:00.

Marlow speaks English and French, so we expect the au pair to be able to speak at least one of these languages.

We have a bicycle to take Marlow for rides on the beach and there will be a car that you can use.

We are looking for someone from January for at least 6 months and up to a year.

Family Description

Marguerite is from here in Cap Ferret. She is an artist and has her own clothes brand. She is a lively and original character who spends the days working from home, painting, surfing and looking after our children. Christopher is from Northern Ireland and loves to cook, be in nature and look after the family. He is a musician and will be gone for some weeks at a time touring with his band. Marlow is an energetic, curious, sociable and sensitive 3 year old. He spends his days playing outside, looking at books and playing games. Bambi is a very sweet and gentle 1 year old girl. For the time being she eats and sleeps well and cries very little. She’s very gentle and easy to look after. We don't have any screens in the house and we place a lot of importance on creative interactions. We are looking for someone dynamic, energetic and caring, with a creative mind to keep Marlow stimulated and secure and who can lend a hand with Bambi when needed. You will be playing an active role in our childrens’ lives and therefore contributing directly to their day to day development.
