Hello everyone, We bought our dream home in France last year, a townhouse with a small courtyard and a one bedroom guesthouse, right in the middle of one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, Montsoreau.

We're hoping to find a couple willing to stay in the guest house for a few weeks (maybe a month?) this July and help us get some of the furniture for the main house in place so that we can move there with our kids in August and at least have some furniture ready to go.

Our ideal sitters would:

1) be familiar with Facebook marketplace and Leboncoin (we love a good bargain!)

2) speak some french, or at least know how to use google translate, so you could communicate with the sellers

3) have access to a van or little pull behind trailer 

4) be strong enough to load/unload the furniture and put it in the downstairs of the main house (no stairs required).

We're looking to purchase a few larger items (an armoire, some bed frames, maybe a desk or two) and perhaps some smaller things as well. We will, of course, pay for all the furniture and would be happy to contribute toward gas. We also want you to have a wonderful time, so we promise not to overburden you with requests!

In return, you'd get up to a month in one of France's loveliest villages. It's perched right on the Loire River, overlooking the chateau of Montsoreau. Lots of cafes, restaurants, wine tasting places, mushroom growing caves, a boulangerie/patisserie and a small grocery store all within walking distance. The town is a true vacation destination so you won't be bored!

The guest cottage (where you'll be staying) is cozy - it has a basic kitchen, a washing machine,  an entryway with a fold out sofa, and a large loft bedroom with a fully renovated bathroom. We already have bikes there which you'd be welcome to use if you'd like to try out the bike trails along the Loire. There is a fold out sofa downstairs so if you have 1 or 2 young children and you don't mind staying in a small cottage all together, we'd be happy to welcome you all.

Dates are somewhat flexible - anytime between mid June arrival and early august departure would be fine.

We hope to hear from you!
