My Husband Malcolm and I purchased the house in 2005 and we are running a Chambres D'hotes most of the year and during the summer months we rent out the villa. We have a separate apartment in which we love all year. Malcolm is still running a plant business in the UK and manages to get home around 1 week per month dependent upon demands in the UK. I have 1 Son living in the UK who is 35. Malcolm does not have any children. We have one small dog and some dog walking is inevitable. The villa has 6 bedrooms a large lounge and kitchen, terraces all around the house and a large garden with swimming pool (not heated). I am very gregarious and enjoy having company around.

Helping with Tourists
Spending a lot of time here alone I would like a volunteer who would be prepared to carry out domestic duties i.e. cleaning, making beds, washing, ironing etc., walking dog, gardening, pool cleaning and help with anything else that needs doing. There is the possibility to meet people from all over the world and to offer help, meet and greet when I am not here.
English/a little French
I am able to offer a small bedroom and use of the wifi, satellite tv and a homely environment.
I am a little fussy so appreciate volunteers who are like minded and I am not expecting anyone to do all the work but just to assist me and in return I am very happy to entertain and be a taxi as we are not located in the centre of the city but there is a lot going on in the summer months when I am at the busiest. I think that I am easy to get on with and quite flexible. You would be treated as one of the family.
