    Hello ! ...we are David and Jurgen.
    Two mature guys, an english man and a german man who have discovered a serene paradise here in the forest hills of the Massif des Maures in the south of France.

    We have land that needs cultivating to protect against fire hazard.
    This includes cutting low branches,digging out and uprooting small bushes etc. We may also need some help with simple tasks around the house and small cabins we are constructing on our land, aswell as small painting jobs.
    Also, occasional help with our computer/ internet.

    Computer programmers/ experienced welders/ electricians / builders/ roof specialists and people experienced in installing solar power and wind power are especially sought after by us !!!

    We do have to travel away sometimes and need your help to house-sit for us and feed our cats and water the garden while we are away.
    In this case you will be organising and cooking your own meals, but we will provide you with plenty of food and moderate amounts of wine/ beer/ drinks, etc.

    We are easy going, relaxed guys who offer you generous tasty meals and your own private-sphere accommodation in modern tents in our garden, (provided with proper matresses to sleep on) or our tiny clip-car caravan.
    Our tiny stone house is situated 200 meters up in the peaceful forest with stunning views. We are 4 kilometers from the town of Roquebrune-sur-Argens and 12 kilometers from the famous Cote d'Azur coast, (Frejus/ St. Raphael etc.)

    Our property is rustical and off-grid, therfore...we have a limited supply of solar powered electricity - please note : INTERNET ACCESS IS LIMITED !!! Our water supply is via tanks supplied by the village water supply, (clean and drinkable), but we do not have running water. In the colder months you will have to boil water and mix with cold for a 'Robinson Crusoe' hot shower, (bucket over the head style !).

    We have 3 cats, so if you have a cat allergy this could be a problem !

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

    Update 24/06/2019... we now have the experience of hosting many workawayers and it has been a wonderful experience!
    We have added accommodation in the form of small modern tents, a discreet "dry/eco" toilet in the garden which is very effective and does not smell. Also, a fenced private garden shower.

    We never ask you to work more than 4 hours a day, (5 days per week). However we do expect additional help with daily jobs around mealtimes, for example : help preparing food and washing up the dishes. We also give you the opportunity to cook your own recipes for the group. The cooking is shared , so depending on how many workawayers are staying you will be asked to cook for 2 or 3 evenings per week. You will also be required to organise your own breakfast and lunch, but we provide you with food.
    We cook a balanced mixture of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes for evening meals, including curries and mediterranean dishes.
    PLEASE NOTE : We have had problems regarding consumption of alcohol which has sometimes spoiled the atmosphere for the other workawayers who drink in moderation !!!
    We now have new rules > No alcohol during the day ! We provide wine and beer, but it is served with the evening meal, not before. A maximum of 3 beers or 3 glasses of wine are provided.
    If you are a heavy drinker we kindly ask you to look for alternative hosts !

    A reasonable level of english, (enough for basic conversation) is essential.

    If you can work well as part of a team of workawayers you are very welcome !

    PLEASE NOTE : due to our limited accommodation it is essential that you provide us with accurate arrival/ leave dates and that you really do turn up !!! Places are reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis and in the summer time we book up quickly !
    We suggest that 2-3 weeks is an ideal time for you to share with us and will give you a good opportunity to explore the surroundings. Of course you are welcome to stay longer if no other workawayers are arriving
    You will have to make your way to Saint Raphael and then take a local bus, (no 4) to Garillans on the outskirts of Roquebrune-sur-Argens. We will collect you from there.

    We look forward to welcoming you !!!

    David + Jurgen.
