Au Pair in France

Being an Au Pair is a great way to experience French lifestyle, living with your host family. The French are famous for ‘la joie de vivre’ or the joy of living. They are known for great culinary dishes, wine, cheese and baguettes.

France is a big country with contrasting locations in vibrant cities like Paris, rural splendor and chateaux  in the Loirea nd beautiful beaches and towns in the Riviera, like Nice.
