New York, NY 10016 United States
?A presentable, pro-active and flexible domestic couple with superb cooking skills is required to work in a beautiful modern villa located in Cannes, the south of France.
The 600 m2 villa is situated on 2 floors and a terrace and consists of 4 bedrooms, an office and a professional kitchen. There is also a separate 44m2-flat which may be provided to the employees.
The family stay in the house around five months per year, the busiest period is from May to September; there are also occasional visits at weekends throughout the year.
Ideally, the candidates would work full time the summer seasons (May-September) and keep the house clean when the Principals and guests are away. The candidates will have to be flexible and available to work during occasional family visits in the off-season. This way the position would be full-time during the summer seasons and part-time during the off-season. In season a cleaning/ironing lady will come as needed.
The position may be either live-in or live-out. If live-out, the candidates must live close by. There is a handyman/driver currently employed in the property, and additional personnel may be brought into the house during the peak summer season.
