  • Description


    We live in Biot, a bus ride, or a 20 minute cycle to the sea.
    It's a lovely area and you will have your own independent little annex with shower room, fridge and washing machine.

    We need help building a small strong reinforced wall and laying paving slabs in the garden.
    if you have any construction experience help would be welcome.
    You can work 4 -5 hours a day and have the rest of the day off, or do full days and then take a few days off at a time to enjoy your holiday. Up to you!

    You can have your main meal with us and we'll provide brekkie and lunch or you can be independent when you want and we'll do reasonable food shopping.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will be in Biot, 10-minute easy drive, or 20-ish mins cycle/bus ride to the sea. We are near a bus route to the train station which will take you all along the coast as far as Monaco and Italy to the West and to Cannes and further afield to the east.
    Our house is at the foot of the touristy village of Biot, so just a 5-minute walk up a hill to bars and restaurants.
    Not isolated but not in the middle of a town. We're near enough to bars, restaurants and other humans and transport infrastructure but it feel quite green and countryfied too.

    So much to do in the area, there is just too much to list, google Biot, Antibes, Valbonne and the Cote d'Azur
