Hopefully the lockdown due to the terrible coronavirus pandemic will shortly be lifted and we would very much like to welcome workawayers back.
We live in a lovely area amongst the vineyards of south west France (Gascony). We have a old house, four small and friendly dogs, a swimming pool and lots of land. We need some help trying to keep the weeds under control and to help with the general painting.
Naturally there are always odd jobs needing attention.
We provide good food, beer and wine. General help in the house is always part of the agreement.
We really only accept people over 21. Unfortunately we cannot cater for vegans. Experience in masonary or carpentry and painting is also an advantage.

We are an English speaking family although we do speak French moderately well. They could learn about cooking, gardening and generally day to day activities.
We have had numerous volunteers in the past. One couple came for two weeks and stayed three and a half months! Another couple met here, married and now have a child. We are easy going and like to include volunteers as friends.
