Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair,
To get started, here is a short description of where we live. We live in the sunny region of Provence, near the famous Sainte Victoire Mountain. It is a sunny region with Marseilles and the sea side being within reach.
Meyrargues is only 20 minutes away from the city of Aix-en-Provence which is a lovely city with beautiful buildings, fountains and lots of really nice shops. There are regular buses to go to the city centre.
The village of Meyrargues is quiet (about 3000 inhabitants) and perfect for people who love outdoor activities such as runnning, cycling, hiking or climbing.There is also a lake where we can swim only 5 minutes away from home.
There is a supermarket nearby to run daily errands, a grocery shop, 2 bakeries, a pharmacy, a flower shop, 2 resturants (among which one pizzeria) and a library.

Job Description

We are looking for someone who can take Ana to school in the morning when we can't, and take care of her in the evening (picking her up at school, spending time with her playing, helping her take her bath and getting her ready for the evening time) when we have to work late or if we need a bit of time for ourselves to run errands, go to appointments or practice an activity where we cannot take the kids, especially Ana.

As for Martin he can pretty much take care of himself but will need to be driven to / picked up at his tennis lessons on Wednesdays. His tennis club is a 20 minute drive from our house.
In the same way, if Ana practices an activity next year we might need our au pair to take /drive her to her activity depending on the schedule.

We would like someone interested in nature, creative crafts (DIY), reading , listening to music and willing to transmit what they love doing to children.
We are also looking for someone who can open our children to a new culture, language and way of seeing things.
Speaking English would be a plus especially for Martin who studies it at school and could use it in context. My husband also needs to brush up his English for his job ;-) of course we would speak French during family times but we would appreciate improving our skills with a native speaker on designated moments when we could speak in English.
