    Description

    Dear workdays,
    Welcome to Le Moulin as we are getting ready for the start of our new 2018 season.

    At the moment we are looking for people who have experience working in the kitchen and can cook. If you would like to assist our cook, plus be happy cooking some meals for the team, please feel free to contact us.
    We are looking for people from April until May.

    Otherwise below is the description of our place.

    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, including Meditation and Yoga, plus 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, international community, 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.

    Sorry we do not accept people travelling with pets.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be in a mediative environment, and are very welcomed to come and join in with the team/staff daily meditation sittings. They will be at least one yoga class offered during your week here.

    There maybe also the opportunity to participate in some of the events/retreats taking place. It is not possible for all events, so you will be told when you arrive.

    You will be part of a community who are interested in self development and have travelled and experience a lot, in their inner and outer life. Work aways have really benefited from sharing and speaking about their own experiences and hearing about others unique life style choices.

    You can enjoy the quiet countryside environment and as well go the the bigger town to experience the french way of life.

    Swimming, kayaking, cycling is all available at the nearby campsite. There is a bakery and a couple of cafés in the nearby village, 5 minutes away.
