Hi to everyone !
I'm a friendly and open minded mature guy who has recently bought a cottage near to Claviers in the Provence.
It is in a beautiful area, close to the Gorge du Verdon National Park. The spectacular gorge is one hours drive away. For experienced cyclists it is a lovely day-trip.
I am looking for help to do small help around the house and in the garden. The house is relatively small, but the garden is 10,000 sq metres.
Help include cutting grass and strimming/ cutting bushes/ building a dry eco toilet/ outdoor kitchen and dining area / private garden shower/ cultivating the ancient olive terraces/ painting/ help building wooden cabins and similar help.
I am especially interested if you have the following skills: capentry/joinery/ welding/ building dry stone walls/ electrical knowledge/ solar and wind energy/ general building knowledge, (such as bricklaying and tiling and working with concrete)/ permaculture and growing of fruit and vegatables. If you do not have any of these skills, please do still write to me ! There is lots of straightforward gardening work on offer too.
I ask for a maximum of 4 hours help per day/ 5 days per week in exchange for your own private accommodation in the caravan or little stone cube hut, (see photo's) + meals, and moderate amounts of wine/beer.
Because you are only working for 4 hours a day, I do ask for help preparing the meals and doing the washing up. The cooking is shared on a rota basis.
I will be joined by my english friend most of the time and he can assist you to improve your spoken english. My engish, french and german is fluent.
PLEASE NOTE : I do provide you with towels, bed-linen and some work clothes, as well as shampoo and shower gel.
I do not provide mosquito repellent spray or sun protection so please bring it with you !
Please bring mobile data with you as my internet is very limited and there are no cafes or bars nearby.
The house is fairly isolated. The nearest village is approximately 4 km. If you are looking for action and the high-life this location is not for you.
I do not tolerate heavy consumption of alcohol ! Only moderate amounts of beer and wine are provided and accepted.
To join me you need to find your way to Les Arcs railway station or the town of Le Muy. I will collect you from there.
Because accommodation is limited it is essential that you contact me in advance so that I can reserve you a place !
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.
I hope to welcome you into my new house and garden soon !
