    Hello, and thank you visiting our profile page !
    Please only apply if you think you like the job and that you have feeling with it.

    Our Year :

    The tourist season in our area will really come to live starting from Mai.
    For the months before Mai we are looking for someone to help us out in the garden, some renovation projects, and other jobs to get us started for the season.

    The low season, from Mai till summer starts is more of a mixture.
    When we have guests, it will be all about preparing breakfasts and keeping the place clean and cosy. If we have no quests, there is always something to do.

    For the summer, our high season, we would be looking for one person (we would prefer a girl/woman), if possible for a longer period of time.

    We would like you to have social skills towards our customers and us too ...lol ...we would like you to stay a minimal of 3 weeks (or longer if all goes well )

    You would need to be able to speak either Dutch or English, if you speak German that would be great ! and some French is good too.

    We respect you being a vegetarian, but please do not apply if you are ....unfortunately it is too inconvenient

    We ask you to help us in a flexible way for at least 5 hours a day, sometimes more ...sometimes less.


    About us :

    We are a young Dutch couple living in the natural park ' Morvan ' in Burgundy France.
    14 years ago we started our projects here. We renovated a small house and we have been renting it out for the last 8 years. We also renovated an old 'inn' that is we ran as a Chambres et Tables d'hotes for 5 seasons. Now we have changed our concept and changed to just Chambres d'hotes / Bed and Breakfast. We are currently renovating an old blacksmiths workshop into a small boutique/store where we will sell Brocante.


    Our 'domain' is surrounded by nature, and we look out over a small lake. We have a beautiful small river running through our 1.1 ha garden.
