Area: Rhone AlpsHi . We have helpers who will now stay to the end of the season so we won't be needing anybody else til spring of next year. Thanks to our helpers since April we have acheived some great objectives and enjoyed great exchanges too. If you like the sound of our profile please get in touch from March/April 2015. We need helpers who enjoy variety and who like kids. Current projects are exterior wood maintenance, indoor painting, veggie and fruit care, cooking, collecting, sawing, chopping wood. We would like two helpers friends or couple to come for a month or so. One of you needs a driving licence. We are a family of four, two children 10 and 7yrs, Leon and Jo run a wine shop and bar here in Tarentaise. We live in a tiny hamlet with a couple of all year round neighbours within one km and the nearest town is 5mins away by car. Our aim is to enjoy our beautiful natural environment to the max and make and produce as much of what we consume as possible. When lunch or supper comes entirely from our garden and our effort it tastes even more delicious!! Our garden ( fruit and veg) is organic and at present we are establishing irrigation systems from local springs. We are hard workers, enjoy having all sorts of projects and adventures, we love music and chatting and sharing a glass of wine over good food and meeting new people. We also need family time so we think that people who like a bit of social but want to do their own thing in their own time fit in well here . we are only taking 1 to 2 month stay. If you contact us please be ready to make a decision and commit firmly as tending to a long list of enquiries with lots of follow up then no more news is not conducive to getting our projects underway. We welcome committed enquiries tho'!
