Hi, We are Honor and Holly (my daughter 16) plus one large friendly Pyrennean Mountain Dog called Bob - with an old Farmhouse based in a charming authentic village in the Aude (part of Languedoc) Easily accessible from airports etc we are in between Roman Narbonne and Medieval Carcassonne (both must sees on your stay!) and 35 minutes from the Med. And 5 minutes from the most gorgeous river which is great for swimming in. And of course lots of lovely walks.
My business is running holiday apartments. I have three gites and from April to October it can be NON stop! I have hosted workawayers for over 4 years now ...my most recent one has just left after having been with me for over two years! So we tend to become one happy family.
It would be ideal (for you ) if you have a car so you can get around this beautiful region but I am happy to drive you too . It is stunning and there is a lot to see !
Help in the house
Well we are English in France so you can benefit from two cultures and some fab (so others say) British cooking with a French twist. I am very inclusive so you will be able to join in with local events and fun things that go on and enjoy this beautiful landscape. My daughter is bilingual and my french is improving daily !
I am looking for someone to help me with the gites and changeovers and also would love some help around the house and gardening and a bit of painting here and there . Ideally someone who is resourceful, not afraid of the occasional use of a drill and happy to fit in with myself and my daughter (and Bob the dog). We are very sociable so you will get to meet lots of new people too.
Also someone who loves exercise and cooking is most welcome as I love to do both but need inspiration!
This opportunity could be for all the summer if the right person comes along
