We are looking for volunteers 2 weeks at a time; as from October 2015 until- beginning December 2015 and then again for March and April 2016. Some painting, general maintenance/ construction/carpentry, and generally prepping for our next season needs to be done.
We, Charles (USA) and Caroline (NL) have moved to South West France in 2005 for a better quality of life. Our businesses are located in a beautifully restored old farm house in Gascogne style (wooden beams with chaux). Caroline runs the Bed & Breakfast and self catering apartment and Charles has a practice in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) at the house/ B&B..Most of the guests are from England, Holland or Belgium and from France.
Help in the house
From end October to middle December and again March/end of April there are hardly any guests and this is the time we use to rebuild, renovate. Opportunities are available for people with skills in carpentry, building, general maintenance, painting, and gardening. Ideally, we would like you to stay for 2 weeks and if things work out, we can then extend it.
From April to September is our high season at the B&B so no projects can be done and no volunteers can stay.
We would like some one who is cheerful, helpful and with interest in people (there could be some other guests).
