Área: EnglandHi, I’m a single man looking temporarily for a bit of help round the house. I work from home (internet based) and have various DIY projects on the go as well as various other hobbies and sports (tennis, squash, kitesurfing) which means there never seems to be enough time to get things done. So I'm looking for a bit of general help to keep on top of things.
Área: FranceWe are looking for one or two people to help with household and kitchen chores starting this week Monday 8th September and then help with the closing down of our centre for this year. Otherwise please feel free to check our calendar beginning of 2015 for next years season. Wishing you well for your travels. Below is a description of what to expect here......... A former mill set in very beautiful surroundings with bamboo groves, a river running through the property, fantastic organic vegetarian food, and the connection with interesting people from around the world constantly passing through. Open from the springtime to early autumn (please check calendar for availability ) A community set in the South West France, we hosts various courses, retreats, seminars, with Meditation, Yoga, Tai-Chi, and various forms of personal development. We are very happy to welcome work always, who understand and will respect the quiet atmosphere we are offering to the many visitors who pass through here. When we are in full season, some of the courses have silent periods in them, mornings or afternoons depending which group, so please be prepared for this quiet contemplative atmosphere when you arrive. Although situated in France, and we do have some french people passing though, we are very cosmopolitan, and english will be heard as much as the french language and sometimes even more so. So keep that in mind if you are wanting to practice french. We do not accept people travelling with pets. Mostly we ask that work aways come for a two week period only arriving on a Monday if possible, and not the weekend. But on some occasions this may not be the case.

Área: Languedoc RoussillonWe are an English couple and are working on our property in Nimes, in the departement of Gard. The property is situated within 10 mins walk of bustling town centre (Pop of Nimes is 140,000) Nimes is a Roman town and there are great activities and atmosphere in the summer. The property is very comfortable and you will be offered good food!

NB As we are NOT at the property all year, please make sure you check that your dates fit with ours!
