We are Tim and Margreeth owners of a small chateau in the North of France, about an hour from Calais.
We are looking for enthusiastic hands-on helpers ( preferably couples or friends) to help us with hosting guests, cleaning rooms and assisting with cooking and the occasional gardening job.
We live in a small, quiet village but there is a car and some bikes you can use on your days off. The area is very rural and beautiful. A great place for long walks and cycling. We are near some pretty seaside villages and it's easy to take the train to Amiens or Paris.
Our volunteers can stay in a romantic gipsy caravan in the woods or a spare room in the chateau.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
The chateau is a great place to stay and to explore the unspoiled region. The volunteers can learn what it's like to run a B&B, meet lots of people and practise their English or French.
