  • Description


    Our team is in place for 2016. I am an English guy running a campsite in the South west of France. The camping is along the river Lot, and enjoys one of the most beautiful sights of the area. The area is great for exploring on foot or by bike (supplied). You will become part of the community of campers from all over Europe as well as the local rural community. I would really like someone for June, July and August to help me over the season. Male or female is not a problem, nor is age.
    The area is great to explore and we have bikes you can use, alternatively we have prepared walks you can do. You have use of the campsite facilities (Wifi, Swimming pool, canoes etc) and you will get to interact with people from different countries.
    We also want 2 people from July and August. The campsite is busy then so you must enjoy families. This will suit a couple or a couple of friends. A second language of French or Dutch would be perfect. If you want to stay longer we can discuss this. We can accommodate you in a lovely holiday homes outside terrace, wifi, and privacy.

    Feel free to get in touch, we have a wide team, so there always might be place for you!

    A fun time to start to set up the campsite, there will be work to do make the campsite ready for the summer season. We would be looking for a single traveler, but couples are also welcome. The work will mainly setting up, opening bar, swimming pool etc. Work behind the scenes, like mowing, cleaning, and setting up shop, bar and some shopping also will be needed. The language practice will be mainly off the campsite since I'm a English owner.

    You're more then welcome to stay for a month or more, so you can enjoy the area, better your French, and live and enjoy the french lifestyle.

    Hope to hear from you soon, and welcome you to the French countryside.
