  • Description


    We live in a beautiful part of south France and can offer accommodation on the first floor with private bathroom. There is only myself and husband living at our home. Your partner is more than welcome to join you on this workaway experience. The work will take about a month to complete. We are 30 minutes from the medieval town of Carcassonne.

    Single female welcome -small dog also might be possible subject to suitability with our Chinese Crested dogs (2).

    The task is to teach us to speak French - conversational. Some help around the garden would be welcome. Looking at no more than 2 or 3 hours a day for 2-4 weeks. Maybe repeat in September.

    Although we have a bike for our guest to use a car is really essential in order to enjoy the wonderful countryside and coastal areas - also Spain only 1.5 hours away. Look forward to hearing from you.
