    Description

    Need to majorly upgrade, clear, paint, and do DIY on my house in the South of France. Would be looking for someone who is good at DIY, woodwork, painting and not afraid to get dirty! Possibly a couple to keep each other company. Its a lovely spacious house with a garden and swimming pool and I would be looking for a couple to 3 weeks help. Garage needs clearing, pool side wall repainting, lots of woodwork and DIY like putting up shelves - so anyone who likes physical work. In return I am a good cook, and the Languedoc area is gorgeous to explore.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will get a chance to stay in a charming French wine-growing village, and do some exploring of the Languedoc region. I am a good cook who is interested in local produce, and wines and am a generous host, so the workaways will get a chance to learn about life in the South of France, taste some good wines, and have some French.

    I would need a volunteer, or possibly a couple for 3 weeks to a month starting April. Need to majorly upgrade, clear, paint, and do DIY on my house in the South of France. Would be looking for someone who is good at DIY, woodwork, painting and not afraid to get dirty! Spacious house in a typical wine growing Mediterranean village, with a garden and swimming pool. Garage needs clearing, pool side wall repainting, lots of woodwork and DIY like putting up shelves - so anyone who likes physical work. In return I am a good cook, and the Languedoc area is gorgeous to explore.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    A large house in a South of France village - nearest town is Beziers and the large town of Montpellier is appx 45 minutes away. Accommodation is a private room with adjoining bathroom in a slightly 'separate' wing of the house. English spoken at home but ideal for someone who want to learn French and bathe in the atmosphere of Mediterranean France.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a wealth of stuff to see and do locally - from the Mediterranean beaches, to old churches and Castles, lively student cities like Montpellier, Narbonne, Perpignan, Toulouse, Agde etc. The landscapes are stunning and there is masses of walking in the Caroux mountains, Faugere hills, rock pools and amazing rivers like the Orb. Workawayers can benefit from discovering the laid back rhythm of the Languedoc, in southerm France, learn about the local vineyards, culture and also if they need it to put on their CV that they have worked with an established and reputable firm in tourism and lettings.
