    It's easy! I am Irish. I have worked in the Middle East for most of my life (first as a teacher and then as an employee in a company) and have now settled in the south of France, just north of Montpellier. I love reading, rugby, cooking and (above all) meeting new people. I speak French and Arabic.

    I previously lived in Abu Dhabi and hosted many people.

    The village is in a perfect location! The surrounding countryside is very beautiful and the main industry in the village is making wine. The Cévennes Mountains are 45 minutes' to the north, Montpellier (an amazing city!) is 40 minutes' to the south and you could be on the beach in 60 minutes. If you like cycling or walking, look no further!

    I am trilingual (English, French and Arabic) and enjoy good conversation. I would be very happy to teach you how to read and write Arabic.

    Je parle arabe très bien (les dialectes syrienne et égyptien) et je peux lire l’arabe classique. Je pourrais vous enseigner l’alphabet arabe. Je serais très heureux de vous aider améliorer votre langue anglais. Bienvenue aux les Nations Unis !

    I will be in my house in France from July-October and will need help in the garden and with general housework.

    The garden is the big job! 1600m2 and it looks like a jungle!
