    Beschreibung

    We are Sundara and David, a retired but still very active Scottish couple. Our only home is a large mansionhouse ('maison de maître') overlooking the Canal du Midi in the Languedoc region. It is used for various purposes including jazz soirees as we are involved in the jazz world, me as a singer & David on electric bass. We have a large Mediterranean garden and a 12.5 m pool.

    We invite helpers/friends into our home during the months of March, April, May, June, October & November.

    We eat with our helpers and enjoy wonderful food. It is also useful if the applicants are reasonably competent cooks and are generally practical. We prefer couples but not under the age of 30.

    It is a plus if the applicants are jazz musicians but on the whole those who are lovers of life are especially likely to enjoy our environment.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We love to hear about how life is lived in other European countries and on other continents. But for us, having workawayers from the UK is a lower priority because, being British ourselves, it is of less cultural interest. We hope that you will learn something from us, not least through the lively discussions we like to engage in over meals about world affairs and what is happening in your home country.

    Arbeit

    We ask for an input of 25 hours a week, ranging from painting to gardening and cleaning (including the pool). In addition to this we would expect you to share cooking and meal preparation. You do need to be practical, but computing skills are not needed. We would like you to stay for a week initially, with longer stays by arrangement.

    We generally prefer couples, as we live in a small village with limited entertainment. Your work will range from painting to gardening, cleaning (including the pool), and sharing the cooking. You do need to be practical, but computing skills are not needed.

    Nous voudrions surtout accueillir des couples français, afin que nous puissions améliorer notre français, en même temps que vous travailleriez votre anglais chez nous. À bientôt !
