  • Description


    Hello everyone,
    We live in a big provencal house in south France. Since few years, we organize a artistic festival (music-art and theatre) and welcome many artists all the summer.
    The house is pretty big, with a lot of space to welcome people. The benevol will have his own bedroom and can be independent if he/she want to.
    Right now, we are preparing the August festival and would like to help me for the garden.
    During summer the house is always plenty of artists and tourists.
    We also need help to prepare the bedrooms of the tourists.
    We traveled a lot, so i speak a good English and Françoise speaks a good spanish.

    The house is located 15 minutes from Montelimar by car, 45 minutes from Avignon and 1h30 from Marseille. We are located in a magic place, in the Provence area around the lavender landscape!

    See you soon,

    Jean Louis and Françoise

    Bonjour à tous,

    Nous vivons dans une grande maison provençale dans le Sud de la France. Depuis quelques années, nous organisons un festival artistique (musique-art-theatre) et accueillons de nombreux artistes pendant tout l'été.
    La maison est très grande, avec beaucoup d'espaces pour accueillir du monde.
    Nous sommes en pleine préparation du festival d'août et nous aimerions avoir de l'aide pour notre jardin.
    Le bénévole aura sa propre chambre et pourra être indépendant s'il le souhaite.
    Pendant l'été la maison est toujours pleine d'artistes et de touristes.
    Nous avons besoin d'un coup de main pour préparer les chambres des touristes.
    Ayant beaucoup voyagé, je parle anglais correctement et François parle l'espagnol.

    La maison est située à 15minutes de Montélimar, 45minutes d'Avignon, et 1h30 de Marseille.
    C'est un endroit magique, au milieu de la Provence et des ses champs de lavande !

    A bientôt,

    Jean Louis et Françoise

    The volunteer would help me with the maintenance of the garden, caring for flowers and prepare the bedrooms and breakfast.
    they may work in the morning or harsh midday. they may of course attend arts events and help us organizing events.

    Le benevole m'aidera pour l'entretien du jardin, s'occuper des fleurs et préparer les chambres et les petits déjeuners.
    Il pourra travailler le matin ou l'âpres midi. Il pourra bien sûr assister au événements artistiques et nous aider à l'organisation des événements.
