  • Beschreibung


    George and I (Andrea) have recently switched our London life to an old vineyard in our native France filled with olive and fruit trees, with a classical Provencal farm house located between three beautiful villages; La Ciotat, Saint Cyr and Ceyreste. The house lies on top of a hill, giving the garden a panoramic view of the sea, old dwellings and Mediterranean vegetation.

    However, there are a lot of things to build and renovate!

    In the garden, we are renovating the dry stone walls of the terraces using the traditional method and will need to restructure the paths along them. Then we would like to replant grape vines in aim to produce our own wine in the future. Our olive trees are in need of TLC, although we are already able to produce excellent olive oil.

    In the guest house (where the former keeper resided) we would like to extend and convert it into a nicer living area. This house needs work such as extending, re roofing, tiling, plastering and painting.

    There is an organic vegetable garden and a greenhouse, 3 donkeys, 7 hens, 2 rooster and Billy our lovely Border Colly.

    As we live on a hill, a car would be a bonus or at least 1 year driving licence

    We would love some volunteers to join us and share this beautiful Mediterranean heritage! We are looking for guests with knowledge in renovation/construction or skilled gardeners as our fruit and olive trees need serious pruning.
