Working in France - Gîte Cleaning

If you're one of the many people that holiday in this part of France at some point in the year, you might decide to book a holiday home or gîte to stay in. Many gîtes are owned by people who do not live in France. Owners therefore employ people to look after their gîte during the rental season (from around May/June to September, though some are available all year round.) Many of the expats we have met since arriving here have at some point in their living in France journey taken on a gîte, and many still look after some in the area. We decided that until our Media Man and Mini Monde businesses took off we would take on a gîte for at least our first year. Somehow we now seem to be responsible for three!

One of the gîtes we are responsible for!

Our job throughout the summer will be to thoroughly clean each gîte after staying guests, keep the pools sparkling, maintain the gardens, and deal with any problems guests may have during their stay. All the gîtes we are looking after are fully booked for the summer right up until September.

We recently opened up one house after the winter and let me tell you now, gîte cleaning is hard work. I was so exhausted by the time I got home I was in bed shortly after the kids! This summer will be a very different for us as in previous years coming to France has always been a holiday. This summer will be a working summer but needs must as we intend to stay.

Will you working this summer or are you planning a trip away?
