I am a retired older woman living by the sea. I am an active person with many friends, having lived in the area for many years. Now I am getting older i am looking for a couple, non smokers, to live on the property for the minimum of a month. No-one under 21 need apply.
Cooking / shopping
Travellers will be able to enjoy living in the South of France near the beach in the village of Cavaliere. Interaction with local people will be in shops and possibly at boules. There is opportunity to book French lessons if required. Depending on the season you will be able to enjoy walks, and swimming and visit French markets.
The volunteering is light gardening duties and a some shopping trips to the local town. I do need some help with evening cooking but not every meal. It would be preferable and welcome but not essential for the volunteer to have own car but a driving licence is important and must be able to drive a manual car. Do not apply unless you can drive a manual car. Basic French is useful. French lessons available locally. A minimum of a 2 month stay is preferable but less could be Ok sometimes. Essentially it's free accommodation in exchange for a friendly presence on the property and some help with various things like sometimes I may need advice about my computer (but not often) If you like playing scrabble that will be a bonus!
Volunteers can enjoy all the pleasures offered by being close to the beach with cycling, walking and exploring one of the most beautiful parts of France.
