  • Description


    We have moved into a new home one year ago now. We would need help to set everything up and for stewardship, general maintenance, cleaning, cooking, organic gardening etc ... in return: accommodation in wooden cabin or summer tent + improvement in French if needed.

    We are located in Provence in the south-east of France, in front of an aerodrome center of gliding, 5 km of the Lake of Saint-Cassien, surrounded by several typically Provencal villages.
    We are equipped with dry toilets.
    We need to rebuilt some dry stone walls, anyone with knowledge in these areas, or permaculture or tree size is welcome !! South-east of France, in front of an aerodrome center of gliding, 5 km from the Lake of Saint-Cassien, surrounded by several typically Provencal villages.

    Nous sommes un couple qui avons d'emménagé dans une nouvelle maison il y a un an déjà. Nous aurions besoin d'aide pour l'intendance, le ménage, la cuisine, le jardinage en permaculture etc ... en contrepartie : hébergement sous tente en été + perfectionnement en français bien-sûr si besoin.

    Nous sommes situés en Provence dans le sud-est de la France, sommes en face d'un aérodrome centre de vol à voile, à 5 km du Lac de Saint-Cassien, entourés de plusieurs villages typiquement provençaux.
    Nous sommes équipés en toilettes sèches, un jardin de permaculture en butte, nous devons reconstruire quelques murs en pierre sèche, toute personne ayant des connaissance en dans ces domaines ou en taille d'arbre est la bienvenue !!
