We like have good time, we love good food and wine and enjoy life.
Our home is located in the middle of the countryside surrounded by vines.
We are looking for energetic all round handy people. Ideally 2, couple or friends.
The work is mainly gardening, and often physical.
So, our helper need to like the outdoors and gardening and have general building or DIY skills.
To be able to communicate easily, specialy during dinner, having basic French is required.
We would prefer an english native speaker and over 23.
If you are positive people, autonomous, if you like to laugh, if you have the sense of humor, if you are motivated and hard worker, we spend a great time together ;)
… and be sure that we will do everything to make you welcome, comfortable and happy to be with us !

Help in the house
We propose to share our french happy family life during the time you stay with us.
We prefere to speak french with you.
So, If you want to improve your French, discover French culture and food, you are in the right place ;)
The help is cleaning in the garden, watering, grass cuthing, weeding, plant, make exterior stairs…
and renovating wooden furniture, sanding, painting …
But also, cut and collect firewood, transporting heavy stones.
So, you have to be autonomous and not be afraid to do physical work.

Of course, we are flexible, but … we ask our workawayers to respect the exchange and working 5 hours per day.
French and bad English
We are a family, We do not do business with our helpers, so we ask you to take part in our family life.
We ask you to participate in daily life without that we may need to ask your help.
That include, help to clean house, help to prepare lunch or diner, and of course, keep your room tidy and clean.
We offer a bedroom with a double bed. You have to share you bathroom with our son and toilets are shared.
For lunch during the week I usually do not cook, so you will prepare yourself your sandwiches, salad, … with whatever's in the kitchen cupboards or in the fridge....
But, for diner and during the week-end I prepare a good meal.
We take evening diners together.
No smoking in the house but outside you can.
It's important that you like nature, countryside and its rather slow way of life
If you are looking for more of a city life and want to party late this is not going to be the right place for you ;)
