Living in the French countryside, I have a stone house with garden, 2 dogs, cats and 2 donkeys. It is located in the southern part of Burgundy, France near the Beaujolais vineyards. There are 3 hectares of gardens and park with a large vegetable garden where I grow organic vegetables in summer. I am from Switzerland and this is my country home but I live here year round.

Help in the house
English and French language, French history, antiques. If you already have a base in French or English we can practice together to help you improve. You can learn about wines as this location is famous for wine making. I have a large cellar on the property. The region is dotted with medieval villages and romanesque architecture.
I need help to feed the animals, clean windows, do a little gardening, clean the pool, and watering the plants and vegetable garden. Some weeding, raking, light garden work. On rainy days, I spend time cleaning inside.
Due to accommodation arrangements, I can only accept male volunteers.
Small comfortable room with double bed and shared bathroom. All meals can be taken with me. I cannot accommodate smokers or picky eaters. During time off, you can use the pool and access to the entire house and garden.
If you wish to travel around a lot, it is better to have a car. The location is rural and there is little public transportation. However, if you are searching for a quiet and beautiful location, there is hiking, a pool, jacuzzi and lots of garden. There are opportunities to see the area with me from time to time.
