    URGENT, Need immédiate help at work (restaurant bar/camping)... its a fully paid job in Ardeche... a great resort!

    hello future visitor/visitors!

    Situated in the Camargue near Aigues-Mortes and the famous Espiguette beach; We have a run down Mas (country home) that needs a bit of TLC (tender loving care).. but it has had already a lot done in the last 12months

    Im having 5 months of work to get fix up the house and garden (which is very unusual for me as i am not a manual person at all and I usually work all the time)

    We are use to having aupair's, exchange students, live in guests and not to mention plenty of family and friends
    so the décision to welcome Workaway travellers seems only natural now that there are no kids at home.. and seems to be working out great!

    originally from Australia, having travelled and lived in all sorts of situations and locations... with a big family that also travels and comes and goes constantly (my sister is also doing workaway on her farm in Australia)!

    by the the house is old but very confortable and there is an attached apartement for guests.

    Looking for a handyman OR why not a couple that loves animals.
    we are about to start the garden, it needs fencing, sorting, cutting and a good organic vegitable patch!

    The position is suited to someone that likes doing some gardening, small maintenance jobs like painting or fixing things.
    The daily shores are helping keeping the house tidy (picking up after yourself) , getting the garden sorted, bricolage, maintenance and fixing things, pet care, some driving and maybe checking in on my ant once or twice a week when she stay's here.

    it might be helpfull... I run large 5 star beach resort and have a busy schedule; generally a house keeper comes in for the general upkeep of the house on a regular basis. ..possibilitie of a paid job if you have a working visa.

    The position is suitable for someone that can work on his/her own and look after himself/herself (like cooking some of your own meals when we can't)

    Over winter there could also be some house minding (while I take my holidays)

    if the person likes the works and wishes to stay on, we can discuss further
