  • Description

    Description

    Hi we are Robert and Carolynn who run a painting school in the South of France at our renovated Catalan farmhouse. We moved to France in 2002 and like to share our love of all things French with our guests. This is a very peaceful location and we are surrounded by mountains and fruit orchards. We are just 30 minutes from the mediterranean sea.
    There is excellent walking country and five small villages nearby to investigate. Vinca, just 20 minutes walk has bars and shops and weekly markets. Also a bus and train service up and down the valley.

    We have a bed and breakfast and gite on site and need help to get this ready for the new season. We are continually upgrading the houses and need help with painting and decorating, cleaning and gardening.

    We have two dogs, Maurice a terrier and Mollie the collie. Also two cats who we rescued from being drowned. The animals come for walking around the fields every day with us.

    We have internet wifi access available for our helpers and if interested you could join a painting class here or yoga class that is run by friends nearby.

    Time permitting we like to show our helpers something of the area. There are also trains and buses available for them to go off and explore on their own.
