    Lovely typical French village. Learn English and French and enjoy stunning views of Mont Blanc and Italy! In addition to this, all the workawayers we have had live with us have improved their language skills. We have a great relationship with all our past workawyers and one stayed for 18 months and now lives nearby as he loved it so much ! One other is back as we managed to get them a job. This role is for someone who doesn't mind being alone as we could be travelling around. Ideally someone for May and June and hopefully into the summer months.

  • Help


    We need a couple or an independent person for cat sitting, DIY and cleaning. This will mean helping outside around the chalet and also feeding a cat when we are not around !

    It is a very calm setting in the mountains with stunning views of Mont Blanc. It is an area that is easy to hitch hike around and perfect for cycling and hiking. The French farming village is lovely. However if you come alone then out of the season, it is very quiet so you need to be a person (if you are not in a couple) who is happy to spend time alone. Ideal for peaceful people who love to hike the mountains.
