Domestic Couple – Cannes, France


We are seeking a domestic couple/caretaker couple to live at an estate near Cannes in the South of France.

This is a full-time and year-round live-in position. The property near Cannes is our client’s holiday home with frequent visits during the spring and summer. During the winter months, the client (a German couple) usually does not spend any time at the estate near Cannes.

This is a live-in position and would suit an experienced professional German-speaking and French or English-speaking couple used to managing the properties of high net-worth individuals.

You will be required to help in the house, meet and greet guests and help your partner with serving the meals (informally) and generally being on hand for the guests.

Duties will include:

  • Hands on cleaning, laundry, and ironing to a high standard
  • Cooking and dinner parties
  • Front of house service
  • Maintaining garden
  • General household maintenance inside and outside
  • Driving duties to include local errands
  • Security of the house


• Must have previous experience working as a couple.
• Excellent housekeeping and cooking skills.
• Applicants should have a neat and polished appearance.
• Must exercise discretion and maintain confidentiality at all times.
• One person must have a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record.
• Applicants must be eligible to work in France.

We are looking for candidates who already have previously worked as a domestic couple/caretaker couple in a similar position.

You can see this is for two stable private service professionals where the lady mainly works as a housekeeper and the husband drives and serves with some maintenance too of course.

A separate apartment is provided on the estate. This is a wonderful long-term position.

PS: The current couple will retire this summer after working there for many years.

An excellent salary package will be available for the right candidates!

Interested candidates who meet (or exceed) the needs of this wonderful couple opportunity should email Silvia Richter or Sebastian Hirsch with full work history, a current photo and written references at
