  • Description


    We are located in the French Alps in the village of Saint Veran, right next to the Italian border.
    Saint Veran is part of the Queyras Regional Park, it's a tiny little village (280 inhabitants) with beautiful traditional wooden houses, nested in a little valley and surrounded with mountains. It's also the highest town in Europe with 2040 meters above the sea level.
    We are running our little Inn ( 11 rooms) since more than 15 years, and we also run a small donkey ranch.
    Monique takes care our guests and B&B ,we have one salaried employe to help us taking care of customers and cleaning up the rooms.
    Olivier works with a herd of about 20 donkeys, that we rent to hikers with pack saddles, so they can trek in the mountains for several days, with the donkeys carrying their tents and bags.

    we needs your help ( 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the late afternoon) to prepare the trips, take care of the donkeys, give briefing and advices to the trekkers so they can safely roam the mountain trails.
    Most of our customers are families, and we often host people from abroad (Brittish, Germans, Dutch...) so speaking English & German is a plus !
    If you'd like to go horse riding during your spare time, we just happen to have a beautiful haflinger mare, Sabbat, and she would probably love to go take a walk with you...
    We speak English, Spanish and Italian.
    Your help will be needed for two monthes, at least from july to august.
