  • Description


    I live in a very wild and beautiful place in the south of France and have now only a wild,cat, a lot of land to bring into cultivation and to brush cutter, many repairs in the house and a barn also to repair.
    I plant trees too.
    The garden was quite big and every plantation was organic; my food too but actually with many others works to do at home and many other activities, I can't do gardening anymore;
    I like to meet people and on this place I pick fruits, I dry them and transform my production, so any help will be welcomed , of course it's physical works and you need to have some strength; Because of the space, I can accept only one person.
    My daughter is living in Paris.
    I have traveled for few very long trip and it's not finish but il was long trips for having time to share life with people and not to use planes. NOw I like to travel in bicycle
    The country is also so beautiful and I have a lot of passions and experiences to share.
    I am a clown teacher .
    I am envolved in different associations and I am volunteers for movies association and municipal library. So I have french and English books and I project 2 movies a week.
    I like animals and, of course natural and very simple life.
    I can speak english,, a little Spanish too
    Please look at My calendar for the period I need somebody. (je n'accueille personne pendant l'hiver.. lieu trop rustique !)

    Avec les beaux jours , mes activites sont essentiellement a l'exterieur : jardin, debroussaillage, travaux d'entretien et renovation de la maison (en eco construction) et autres projets...
    La riviere est aussi un lieu tres important de ressourcement, de baignade et de petits chantiers pour en nettoyer les rives.
    j'espere attaquer un de ces 4 une mosaique dans la maison etc...

    Bienvenue donc aux personnes aimant la nature et ayant le coeur et l'esprit ouverts.
    PS: la viande n'est pas exclue mais effectivement je ne chasse pas et j'ai souvent des choix plus alternatifs. Je me nourris beaucoup de plantes sauvages.
    Aucun sectarisme mais des choix que j'espère cohérents.

    I need most of all help outside and quite physical exercises with pleasure of mooving, using your muscular energy and your creativity.
