  • Description


    We live in a watermill near SOREZE (Tarn) in which we have bed and breakfast (which operate year round but especially in the summer) that Bernard runs, and a small cottage. We are very involved in the cultural network of the area. I (Véronique) was a street performer till last year and created hats with recycled materials. I've got a hudge studio and love to create "things". We’re very involved in the the local cultural and social life ( ciné-club, alphabetisation…) Bernard does not speak english and wish some one able to speak a little bit french. We are looking for a fellow who would help us for the outside work ( refresh the garden, trimming shrubs..)or inside (maybe helping Bernard around for the bed and breakfast ready to tinker and tidy up the mill and who feels like sharing nice moments , with us and our friends. Our house is very open (the Covid is slowing down our social life but we hope it's not going to last for ages!)

    Nous habitons dans un moulin à eau, près de SOREZE (Tarn) dans lequel nous avons des chambres d'hotes (qui fonctionnent toute l'année mais surtout en été) et un petit gite. Bernard s'occupe des chambres d'hotes et Véronique était artiste de rue et créait des chapeaux en impro avec des matériaux de récupération () ; Véro aun immense atelier et adore bricoler!!!. . Nous sommes très impliqués dans le réseau culturel et social du coin (ciné-club, alphabétisation ..). Bernard ne parlant pas anglais nous souhaiterions quelqu'un qui parle un minimum le français. Nous cherchons quelqu'un qui pourrait nous aider aux travaux extérieurs (entretien du jardin, taille d’arbustes…), ou aider Bernard au ménage des chambres d' hôtes (en musique) ou à bricoler et ranger l' atelier qui est une caverne d'AliBaba, au choix... mais aussi qui ait envie de partager de bons moments avec nous et notre réseau d'amis!
