    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The south west of France in general and in particular the natural environment around here is something I am benefiting from every day and I am be happy to share that natural beauty and space here.
    There is also a great variety of cultures in the area including the Basque and Spanish culture and a fairly international crowd in the Hossegor area and also here at the guest house.

    I would need some help to run the natural guest house here. Main duties in season are cleaning, laundry, gardening and occasionally welcoming the guests. Weekly work hours & wage will depend on individual agreements depending on your needs, skill sets and needs at the guest house.
    Looking at the last years mid season there would be an average of 20h per week (april/mai/june/september/october) with a minimum wage per hour no matter which season.
    High season (july/august) and winter ( november,december,january,february,march) it is generally less hours unless there is specific larger projects in winter which happen at times.
    In summer 70% of the working time is scheduled and off season I would say 70% is unscheduled so a lot can be done in the week when ever it fits.

    Outside work especially in summer we mostly enjoy the beaches and waves behind the house together but everyone is pretty free to do what ever they prefer. The natural surrounding here are also perfect for running, biking and so much more...
