    Hello and welcome to a friendly, convivial ambiance and a fabulous destination where it has it all, with many free and affordable things to do and places and different towns to visit.

    We are well placed and you can walk to beaches, town centre , bus and train stations, markets, cinemas, shops supermarkets, port, parks, bars, restaurants etc etc ( see further details for walking distances)

    For us, Workaway is mutually beneficial. Everyone is a winner, hosts and guests alike.

    You will be able to enjoy Cannes and visit those wonderful destinations you may have heard of on the French Riviera, South of France. frontier Italian towns and other close by destinations.

    Cannes has approximately 300 sunny days a year and moderate temperatures throughout most of the year. In Winter
    there is also sunshine.

    In winter you can get buses to the nearby ski stations which are mainly sunny and which are cheaper than many other skiing destinations. Or you could go by car.

    There are interesting walking and hiking trails.

    Cannes has a well served train station and also a bus station both are less than 10 minutes walk from our property . You can travel cheaply by bus to many destinations €1.50 one way €3 round trip by bus all the way to Nice stopping at many coastal towns along the way.

    We suggest you get a ZOU pass which gives you and up to 3 people accompanying you 50% off local train fares, from Italy to Marseille. Up to 75% for 10 tickets bought in advance to the same destination.

    There is also the stop for BLA BLA bus , FLIX bus, OUI BUS ETC for other destinations which is about 25 minutes walk away.

    €4 for a day pass 24 hour Cannes bus ticket €8 for 3 days which includes such buses that go along the coast just past Theoule and the buses that circulate in Cannes and Cannes la Bocca and many in Le Cannet it also includes the cabriolet bus which goes along the Croisette up to Palm Beach and the navette up to the historic town Le Suquet.

    Cannes Islands by frequent ferry approx €15 return. A choice of St Marguerite where a man with an iron mask was kept in the fortress there and St Honorat where there is an abbey with monks.

    We have a roof top terrace where there are sun beds, tables and chairs and eventually another kitchen, a sheltered area. Internet also reaches there. ( see further details) This is still a work in progress.

    WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR WORKAWAYERS WHO GENUINELY WANT LONG STAYS ONLY. Experience has taught us that this for us is preferable and far safer.

    UPDATE
    IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED AS YOU NEED THE EUROPEAN PASS HERE
    We are fully vaccinated and have our European pass.
    We respect government guidelines for safety procedures and take the pandemic seriously as it can affect your health and ours, even if you are vaccinated.

    We are looking for people who are honest, agreeable, easy-going, flexible with a good willing attitude.
    We will consider 2 people ( couple or friends ) but realistically 1 person is sufficient.

    DONE WITHIN YOUR HELP HOURS (see further details for a more detailed description ). Most of the help left to do is simple and needs little explanation. If you have no experience and are willing, we will be happy to explain and show you. It may be possible to teach you new skills depending on where we are in the various projects. We are happy to learn new skills. The help is mainly home improvements DIY MOST VERY SIMPLISTIC. Some of your help hours will include cleaning - and possibly some deep cleaning, and cleaning some objects that have gotten dirty. Gloves can be provided for the cleaning ( waterproof) and if necessary I can offer you a simple pair of gloves for DIY tasks. A few hours of cooking, you do not need to be a chef, we have many gadgets. Presently also some organising and tidying up.

    If you like nature and walking or hiking here are just some examples:
    Cannes PARC LE CROIX DES GARDES 80 hectares ( 1 hectare is 100,000 m2 ) natural parc with various walking and hiking trails varying in length and distance. There is also free parking in different spots outside the park or you can get a bus or walk there.
    CANNES ISLANDS
    LE CANNET ALONG THE RIVER BED
    COASTAL WALKS AND HIKES
    VARIOUS INLAND WALKS AND HIKES
    AROUND CANNES ITSELF
    etc etc
    AND VARIOUS OTHER CLOSE BY DESTINATIONS.

    Cannes has nautical centres, diving, boat , paddle etc hire water skiing etc

    Cannes has so much more see further details for lists and descriptions of some of the places.

    We are easy-going, female and male and we enjoy living in a friendly, convivial, easy-going ambiance. We speak English, French and Italian. We are well-traveled and have worked in various countries and continents.

    It may be possible to teach you additional skills if you are interested. We are open to learning new skills.

    Our property is well placed and even on help days you will be able to walk to the beaches and Mediterranean sea, the beautiful promenade La Croisette, town centre, bus and train station, a port, markets, shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, 3 cinemas ( French and English and in its original language), Palais de Festival ( where the International Film Festival is held and many other festivals and congresses), a variety of live music venues and venues which show live sporting events with pub prices and FREE ENTRANCE, theatres, boules courts which are free, municipal swimming bath which opens up like a pool in summer, municipal tennis courts, the kiosks - sit outside in the centre of Cannes with an inexpensive glass of wine or beer or nonalcoholic drink and many other places.

    This is also a cultural exchange and we love the opportunity of getting to know more about you and you can get to know more about us and the people in this area of France.

    NOTE As we enjoy living in a harmonious easy-going environment communication with ease is very important so you must have a reasonable level FLUENT IN ENGLISH , We also speak French and Italian but at home we speak English as I am English and my best friend is Italian. Visiting family and friends often only know English.


    NOTE, As we enjoy living in a happy contented environment where everyone is a winner hosts and helpers alike. We have come to this conclusion.
    For your pleasure and ours as we are 50+ we think that younger candidates ( UNDER 25) will be better and happier in a younger household or where they can have safe interaction with younger people.


    WE ARE DOING IMPROVEMENTS, MAINTENANCE AND RENOVATIONS MAINLY ON OUR PROPERTY WHICH IS OVER 120 YEARS OLD SO IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.

    I am doing treatment for cancer which could change and because of this I have a lack of energy and this is one of the reasons why we will desire your help.

    I know that there is a lot of information in our profile, this is so that you can evaluate if you can be happy and productive here. If you will not be happy then nor would we and we enjoy living in a harmonious happy environment. Please read all the profile before sending a message, so that you can evaluate if it is suitable for you.

    HOURS AND TIMES

    POSSIBILITY OF MORE FREE DAYS OR SHORTER HELP DAYS - If you want and it is possible, IF AGREED BEFOREHAND your hours may be done at the beginning of your stay leaving you totally free to enjoy the rest of your stay or giving you extra Free days or some shorter help days so that you can discover other areas close by or whatever you may want to do. This may not always be possible e.g. paint needs time to dry between coats. The weather is bad and the help is outside exposed to the elements.

    One of the many reasons we prefer long stays.

    PRESENTLY we hope to have visiting family members and friends ( obviously following government guidelines and they will all be vaccinated. It is likely that most of them will only speak English, ( so it is fun for us all it will be important that you are FLUENT IN ENGLISH.

    It is important that you are happy and contented so we need to know if it is possible to accommodate any requirements or expectations that you have, Before committing it is best that we can assure you that we can revolve around any work or study commitments you may have, hence the following questions.

    IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMITMENTS OR REQUIREMENTS PLEASE GIVE DETAILS WHEN ENQUIRING this includes digital commitments or learning or teaching commitments. Do you intend to look for work or work whilst you are here and if so what would your hours be?

    I AM DOING IMPROVEMENTS, MAINTENANCE AND RENOVATIONS MAINLY ON MY APARTMENT WHICH IS OVER 120 YEARS OLD SO IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.

    Unfortunately, I have cancer and I am having treatment and I no longer have the same energy levels because of that treatment and various past treatments so I need your help.

    Note most of the help is in the apartment where you will be staying, in the building, or on the roof terrace that is where a lot will take place (the top apartment PENTHOUSE ) and there are 44 steps to reach the apartment. The apartment is on the entire 2nd floor and the rooftop terrace is on the floor above. There is no elevator.
    Some help may be required a little further away less than 5km if this is the case then your travel time will be deducted. If there are any travel expenses then these will be paid by us.
    1 possible place is less than 10 minutes walk away, another a storage unit is 15 minutes walk away and another which is less than 4km away ( either we will take you there or pay for transport) It will give you FREE access to: a pool with a sea view, 2 boules courts 1with a sea view, 2 tennis courts and ping pong table in a different town Cannes La Bocca. The centre is 15 minutes walk from here and LES PLAGES DE MIDI ( MIDDLE BEACHES ) are less than 20 minutes walk it is less than 4km away and either we take you or we pay for transport. The time is deducted for traveling if you are going there to help, if it is only for enjoyment then you may need to be accompanied by myself or my best friend who lives with me at least the first few times and if it is only for enjoyment obviously no travel time is deducted nor any travel expenses.


    The setup is a sort of flatmate set up WE ALL SHARE OBVIOUS FLATMATE TASKS EQUALLY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE LIVE IN DECENT SURROUNDINGS. Any input is welcome, This will be your home so you need to feel happy and contented.

    HELP WANTED Please note we are very safety conscious.
    I can provide printed or written instructions of help to do which will also be weather categorised. Most of the help needed will be up on the terrace exposed to the elements, for this reason we have now set up under the pergola a painting and construction station so that even on rainy days there can be progress. This also means that on rainy days ( yes it does rain here 300 sunny days a year) , that IF POSSIBLE AND PREVIOUSLY AGREED then IF YOU CHOOSE you can do extra help hours that will be deducted from future help hours or if on your free day it is raining IF POSSIBLE YOU CAN CHOOSE to do some help that day and have a future sunny day free. Usually we prioritise help exposed to the elements when possible so that we can offer this advantage.
    MOST OF THE HELP NEEDED IS DIY HANDY STUFF BUT THERE ARE ALSO SOME HELP HOURS TO BE USED DOING THESE OTHER THINGS.
    GENERAL HELP AROUND MY PLACE,
    CLEANING AND ORGANISING around my home, on the terrace and the little room and tool shed on the terrace
    1)CLEANING ( when possible we try to organise it for rainy days )
    Regarding the COMMUNAL AREAS usually done between all occupants, obviously including ourselves once a week and takes on average 1 hour. If we all do this cleaning of the communal areas is not deductible from your help hours as you would normally clean your place even when working, however as I may have low energy levels it would be lovely if you would do ALL this cleaning once a week and ALL your time spent doing it would be deducted from your help hours.
    2) ORGANISING
    TERRACE
    a)Tidying up the recently renovated terrace and organising it better.
    b)The wooden cabinet and room on the terrace. This is where all the tools and equipment are kept for all the DIY handy person projects. Although it has been organised, there are more things to add to it. So that you can familiarise yourself with where everything is you could do simple plans and even re- organise it better. This must be pre-agreed and obviously, the time spent is deducted from your help hours as is everything under the help wanted unless otherwise mentioned. ( ANOTHER REASON FOR PREFERRING LONGER STAYS. THIS WAY AS FOR PAST HELPERS IT WOULD ALSO BE LIKE YOUR WORK SPACE AND PLACE.
    c) SORTING OUT THE TILES KEPT ON THE TERRACE FOR FUTURE PROJECTS The tiles from the recently renovated terrace are placed around the perimeter ( sides) . There are smooth ones for the walls or cladding or lining cupboards and storage areas ,inside flooors, there are rough ones for the outside floor. They should already be in these 2 groups, there is a distinct sign on the back of them indicating if they are smooth or rough. There are a few different markings on the tiles. The tiles should be put into groupes Rough, Smooth and then their different makings so that they can be immediately selected for their use. e.g those with many distorted markings inside lining terrace cupboards made of brick.
    The nicest ones for visible areas. Possible table plateaus, seating areas with storage etc.
    D) BEHIND THE BAR /COUNTER TOP CUPBOARDS ON THE TERRACE
    There under another pergola like structure we have stocked sun beds, some tiles , a dishwasher to be put in the terrace kitchen.etc This could be better organised with help.

    KITCHEN ( preferable rainy days)
    A)You may prefer to re-organise my kitchen ( lots of great gadgets).
    b) You may prefer to re-organise some of the cupboards in the communal areas and bathrooms.

    BEDROOM + MEZZANINE ( preferable rainy days)
    a) Help me organise it.

    STUDIO with many free activities
    Less than 4km away . travel expenses or we take you there. Travel time deducted.
    Cleaning and organising.

    STORAGE SPACE CLOSER TO BEACHES
    15 minutes walk travel time deducted.
    Organise better and clean.


    3) COOKING AND FOOD PREPARATION
    We like to eat at least 3 meals ( dinners) together so we can have an agreeable moment and get to know you better.
    When you are out exploring then easy food options that require little effort can be provided. If agreed in advance on occasions if you are sure to return to eat then it may be possible to do a meal in a slow cooker hence no time restrictions.

    It would be really lovely if someone wanted to do some cooking and food preparation some of the time. Obviously, if it is just you doing some meals then the MAJORITY of that time (possibly all that time) would be deducted from your help hours. You need to eat too. You can also ask us to help e.g peel some vegetables, mash the potatoes, etc.

    Note stating the obvious attendance time waiting for a dish to cook in the oven is not deducted from help hours. E.G. You make a shepherds pie or some other meal which goes in the oven and requires no attendance except for being taken out when cooked then obviously the time it took you to make it and any cleaning up after food preparation will be deducted but the time it sits in the oven as there is nothing to do but wait is not included. As stated obviously if you are cleaning up during it being in the oven then the time it takes to clean up is deducted. A roast dinner with a variety of mixed roasted vegetables is different as you will need to keep basting the roast and putting the vegetables in at intervals etc and then turning them.
    IF IT IS A COMMUNAL EFFORT -MEANING THAT IT IS DONE BETWEEN US EQUALLY THEN NO TIME WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR HELP HOURS AS YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM EATING THE COMMUNAL EFFORT AS WELL. When you finish work you normally prepare a meal for yourself.
    COOKING and FOOD PREPARATION AND THE CLEANING UP AFTER FOOD PREPARATION
    OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU ARE DOING MOST OF THE COOKING AND FOOD PREPARATION ETC THEN AT THE VERY LEAST THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME SPENT if not all the time spent IS DEDUCTED FROM YOUR HELP HOURS OR IF YOU DO PROPORTIONALLY MORE THAN YOUR FAIR SHARE THEN THAT DIFFERENCE IS DEDUCTED FROM YOUR HELP HOURS.
    Note you are very welcome to suggest various dishes from your country or any preferences that you may have etc
    There are many useful appliances, slow cooker, multicooker, air fryer, raclette, fondue, rotisserie grill, panini machine pancake maker, automated soup maker, plancha, barbecue, electric steamer, toasted sandwich maker etc
    As this is a convivial and friendly place we like to eat all together at least 3/ 4 times a week, understandably when you are out exploring you may not know what time you will return and we want you to enjoy your stay here.

    4)SHOPPING food shopping is mainly done by my best friend with my credit card once a week. You are very welcome to add to lists of what is needed missing or what you think would be good or for recipes. He goes to a supermarket 2 minutes walk from the apartment and what he cannot get there he goes to another one 6 minutes walk away. IF YOU WANT YOU CAN JOIN HIM AT ANY MOMENT WHILST HE IS SHOPPING AS YOU MAY SEE SOMETHING GOOD. I PAY FOR ALL THE SHOPPING FOR THE MEALS BREAKFAST, LUNCH and DINNER, TEAS, COFFEES, Cordials if you would like them, however as my best friend only goes once a week and only buys fresh produce that will be used in the next few following days it may be necessary that you do some shopping on occassions for additional fresh produce, or missing ingredients or fresh milk if you require that. Here it is mainly long life milk. This shopping time Is NEVER DEDUCTED FROM YOUR HELP HOURS nor IS helping with the shopping bags. You will benefit directly from this.
    SHOPPING CONTINUED If you go shopping for something that involves the projects here or for something for which you will derive no benefit from e.g you go to the DIY store ( 5 minutes walk away) for supplies etc then ALL THAT TIME IS DEDUCTED FROM YOUR HOURS including the travel time to go there , if you are going out and the place is on your way back home ( IT SHOULD NEVER AFFECT YOUR LEISURE TIME) and I ask you to pop in on your way back home then obviously just the time it took you to do the shopping, if you are going out and the place is a few minutes out of the way ( IT SHOULD NEVER AFFECT YOUR LEISURE TIME)- then the few minutes out of the way and the shopping time is deducted from your help hours.


    5) DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) type stuff. Some IMPROVEMENTS and MAINTENANCE, RENOVATIONS ( This is what most of the help hours will involve)
    Most need no previous skills unless mentioned and most we can teach you if necessary and you are willing. Below are just some examples. We are looking for an agreeable, flexible, honest, easy-going person who is willing to help.

    a) Preparing paintwork and sanding.
    b)Painting, varnishing
    c) Touch up painting.
    d) Cleaning terrace tiles and grout and sealing tile grout/joints - sealing the stuff in-between the tiles( basically painting on with a fine brush the sealant on the tile joints/grout. I have special knee pads for this.
    e) Completing the building, painting and lining of some garden boxes. ( most of the building is done with just a few left to do 2 which are odd shaped ones as they line the perimeter) They came in kits so are easy and if necessary we can teach you how to do this depending on where we are on this project. It is mainly painting the insides, lining the inside, light hand sanding and painting/ varnishing the outside that is left to do.
    f) Cleaning kitchen tiles and joints and using special sealant to protect the joints. Basically painting on thin coats of sealant on the joints to protect them.
    g) Cleaning kitchen tiles and joints and using special sealant to protect the joints.
    h) There are some marks on a bedroom ceiling after a guest used a vapeur machine with essential oils. Cleaning the marks off and preparing the paint work. Painting.
    I) Hanging a few kitchen cabinets in the terrace kitchen or just help with their hanging depending on your experience and what you feel confident doing. ( Possibility of learning new skills)
    J) Replacing a kitchen work surface or just helping depending on your experience and what you feel confident doing.
    K) Replacing cupboard doors or just helping depending on your experience and what you feel confident doing. ( on the cupboards behind the bar on the terrace). ( Possibility of learning new skills).
    L) Putting locks on cupboards.
    M) Creating shade on the roof terrace so we can all enjoy it throughout the day and it will be more enjoyable to do your help hours there when possible. Much easier than it sounds. Possibility of learning new skills.
    N) various other maintenance and improvement help.
