Region: Languedoc RoussillonWe are an Anglo/French couple in our early 50's with a 14 year old son. Irena and Bernard and our son Christophe. We enjoy people visiting from all over the world. This is a wonderful exchange and appreciate workers that can give their best, work hard and also enjoy what they are doing and have some fun and good exchanges at the same time. We enjoy sharing ideas and being a contribution to each other in some way. We run a B & B, plus Gites, on 7 acres of land in a beautiful part of south of France, in Le Gard. We do organic gardening, growing all kinds of veggies from tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, beans, to salads and often need help, in the garden, planting, weeding, keeping it tidy. We also have lots of soft fruits, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries etc. so in season we need help with picking soft fruits, making jam. We need help and to maintain the grounds, bringing in cut wood, storing it, clearing the overgrown areas, watering the garden, weeding etc. We are particularly keen on someone that can assist us with updating our web site, ie add a calendar and links to face book, etc... and help to create a facebook page and keep it updated. Anyone who is good at sorting out paperwork, we are having a big clear out. When we have guests we need help with cleaning rooms, making beds and serving up breakfast and clearing up afterwards. We also have a donkey, our pet dog Djoulou who loves being taken for long walks, and 3 cats. We take all our meals together except breakfast, as Bernard works outside as well and gets up really early. I have recently stopped tour guiding work and traveling all around the world and have trained as a Yoga teacher. I would enjoy people who would like to take Yoga lessons with me in the morning, and/or evening. We appreciate anyone one who has some kind of skill, including being organised, and working as a team or on your own, so that the work we need doing can be done effectively, with some fun, enjoyment and great memories along the way.
