  • Description


    I am a german woman based already for a long time in France with my 23 years old son. Judith and my son Jeremy.
    We enjoy people (often young couples from the US) visiting from all over the world. This is a wonderful exchange and we appreciate helpers that can give their best, are motivated, organized, a little bit stylish and also enjoy what they are doing and have some fun and good exchanges at the same time. We enjoy sharing ideas and being a contribution to each other in some way.

    We are now open from may to september and looking for 1 Workawayer to help us throughout the summerseason, on a longer basis than usual. If you can commit to 2-3 months (or longer), we would love to hear from you. If you are looking for a shorter position, unfortunately we cannot accommodate you in summer but maybe there are other possibilities for you.... have a look below ;-)
    Please do not be sad when we don´t reply immediately.
    In summersaison may-september when there are guests at the house we will offer a wage (per hour) based on the french smic.
    If you would like to join us a little bit earlier in the year when the guesthouse is only a private home to help us about 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week to prepare everything for summer feel free to contact us we will offer you a very nice room and the meals in this time we can accept two workawayer (privat/without a wage/up from 10 days).
    Sometimes we are also looking for couples which would like to make some housekeeping and taking care about the dogs in wintertime (privat/without wage/up from 10 days).

    We have a very beautiful, traditional provincial guesthouse with 4 luxery rooms to rent in the Alpes Maritimes close to the mediterranean sea with nice garden terraces overlooking the montains and the valley. 4 lovely border collies are joining our place (so you really have to like dogs and also know how to manage them) and adjust some fun and happiness at the place.

    The help is varied and not difficult. People who can help with the housework vacuuming, , hanging out washing, general housework, Someone who can see the tasks that need doing and knows these kind of tasks would be wonderful. Someone who is good at organising and can get the jobs done well and efficiently.

    Help to welcome the guests, prepare breakfast, book restaurants and trips for them and just helps to create a great atmosphere at the place. Take the collies for a walk or to go swimming in the river with them.

    Someone who also like gardening, who can make very tidy cleanup in our 4 quite luxurious rooms (for the big room changes I usually have a homemaid) and have positive attiude and energy!

    We have a variety of help required listed below. When you write to us, please let us know what kind of experience if any you have had in any of the tasks below, Can be just growing up at home in a big home or any kind of paid work,.
