The Principal would consider it a real advantage - although not essential - if candidates can offer simple cooking skills and are able to prepare a breakfast buffet when the home is occupied and very busy. This will give the American resident chef, who usually works late into the night with his team of interns, a little extra time for marketing etc in the mornings. The property has a seasonal housekeeping team who live locally and have been trained to a high standard by the Principal - one will now be offered a long term contract. A seasonal concierge, an interior services team and exterior workers are also employed to care for the family and guest requirements and maintain the 30+ hectares of gardens and grounds.


The busy rental season runs from May to October and the American owners - who are always in residence with their family over the Christmas period - will use the property for vacation time outside of the summer season. Candidates must speak fluent English and fluent French and must have a driving license. Candidates must also have several years of experience working in a similar ultra-luxe private service environment providing complete management including budgeting, accounts, staff rotas etc etc; they should also know how to maintain a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere for the owner’s family and visiting high-profile guests who all require ultimate discretion and a very high level of service. Accommodation of a 2 bedroom property on the estate is offered with this position.
