I am now back home from hospital and ready to start hosting again
I am now living alone in this beautiful part of France, Couiza, that is.
I have lived here since 2004, but my partner has now left and I need help keeping the house and land tidy, while I try to sell and buy something that one person can handle. I am looking for help weeding, pruning and general tidying of land.
Broadband internet with web-cam and wi-fi, so as you can stay in touch with friends and family. 1.5 hrs from spain, 0.5 hrs from carcassonne airport, 1 hr from toulouse and perpignan airports, local train station and bus service, but I am willing to meet you localy when you arrive. I have bikes that you can use and I offer accomodation in my house in a twin bedded room. (if you are travelling alone then the room will be yours unless otherwise agreed)
I speak a little french and english.
I am looking for helpers who can work on their own initiative, if required, but I am very flexible about times and also weather conditions. I would expect between 20 to 30 hours work a week, depending on what is happening, and in return I will supply food and drink, within reason, although I can cook, I might need some help in the kitchen as well.
I am not a vegetarian and I also smoke occasionally, as I am trying to stop.
If this sounds like your sort of place please contact me, I am looking for genuine helpers, all year round.
