Job description

The position is for a couple, who are passionate about service, gardening, self motivated and cleaning, with an eye for detail.  The role is hands on, additional skills are preferable but not essential.   

A great opportunity to live in an idyllic location, in the countryside, but with close proximity to walk to a local town and bakers. 

The Chateau is a boutique holiday rental, predominately with guests staying in the summer months, with less rentals during the winter. 

Job requirements

Fluent French is essential, along with gardening skills, cleaning and the ability to problem solve and be a dab hand with machines and diy. Previous experience in managing large estates and preparing accommodation for guests is preferred. 

In the winter months, the work required is mainly management of the estate, cutting lawns, strimming, weeding, collecting leaves, along with any necessary maintenance works in the Chateau.  

This changes during the summer to have more of a focus on cleaning of the Chateau, change overs, swimming pool and guests.

Self motivation, good organisational and communication skills are key.

The position will have a trial period, which subject to performance, will be extended to a yearly contract. 

The live-in accommodation is a lovely fully furnished gatehouse, with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, dining room, cloakroom and private garden.

CV's and references will be reuired, along with police checks.
