You will be required to live full time on the property, in a beautiful and recently renovated 3 bed/2 bath cottage, connected to the guest wing of the main house. You will interact directly with the homeowners and their guests whilst they are in residence at the chateau (usually for about 4 months per year, mostly during the summer), providing daily tidying of rooms and seeing to washing and ironing for the homeowners. Additionally, you will work on basic groundskeeping (weeding and watering the lawns), keeping the pool clean between weekly maintenance visits, and running errands for the upkeep of the chateau and it’s tools/vehicles. During the off-season, you will be responsible for projects and general upkeep. Must be dual French & English speaking, have a valid driving license, and be able to work in the EU. Rate of pay: €12,000 per annum and included accommodation. Please contact email@example.com with your CV/resume and cover letter, and your application will be reviewed.
