Job Description

?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.
