We are an English couple in Nimes, in the departement of Gard. The property has a very spacious garden yet is very close the bustling town centre (Pop of Nimes is 140,000) Nimes is a Roman town and there are great activities and atmosphere in the summer. It’s about 35 min from the sea, and near to Avignon, Arles, Uzes and many other beautiful historic towns and villages. The property is comfortable and you will be well fed. The accommodation is a separate, fully-eqipped appartment with TV and wifi, so you can be independent if you prefer.
Sue is a good cook and an experienced teacher of French and English . Chris still works in UK but comes and goes to Nimes!
Please read this bit carefully:
We are renovating, well into our project, and about to live there full time.
Indoors we need carpentry experience with fitting doors and cupboards. There is also tiling and painting to be done. Outside we have an unruly garden to tame. Cutting back trees and undergrowth, making walls and paths, treating outside fences, watering systems, laying slabs to make a shady arbour, and preparing to make a potager(veg garden)
We are happy to take couples (double bed) and can supply travel cot
One last point, we get messages from workawayers who don’t have experience to help us. Please read our profile carefully, and if you can offer what we need, we then stand a better chance of matching up!
Workaway is a wonderful system and we look forward to meeting new travellers.
You can walk into town from the house. Nimes has a vibrant atmosphere with bars and restaurants.
Visiting local historical and beauty spots: Uzes, Pont du Gard, Aigues Mortes, Arles, Uzes, Avignon and the Med are all within reach. There are very good transport links and I am happy to help you get to where you want to go.
I am an experienced language (French and English) teacher and can help workawayers improve their language skills
We are looking to host someone who has experience of working already, preferably having skills that fit our jobs.
Indoor jobs: carpentry, painting, wall tiling, (shelves, storage cupboards)
