Area: Languedoc RoussillonDenis and I moved to the south of France from Scotland in July last yearare are loving the life out here. We are very easy going, enjoying the fabulous weather, surrounded by vineyards and friendly people. What more could you ask for? We live in a small but lively village, plenty going on here and in the villages round about. Narbonne and Carcassonne are easily reachable. We are getting the house ready to run as a bed and breakfast next year and need some help to get it even more fabulous than it is at the moment. We have done most of the easy work now and are only looking for skilled joiners, tilers, plumbers etc. Many thanks to those who helped us last year.
