  • Description

    Description

    We are a British couple in the south of France with 2 friendly dogs and busy day jobs. We moved into a lovely old French house but it's 200+ years old and needs a lot of work so there's plenty to do! We would really appreciate at least 1 or 2 extra pairs of hands to help us progress things. In 2022 we are particularly looking for help to repoint a barn wall, paint some woodwork, tidy the garden, fit some floor tiles and support an art project.

    Our village is lovely - surrounded by vineyards and located near the Canal du Midi. It has 2 bars, an excellent nearby restaurant, shops and a post office. Nearest garage and cashpoint 8km. We have bicycles that you can use to get around, or you can also take the bus. There is a bus stop 100m from the house and the route goes to Capestang and Béziers for 1.20€ each way Monday - Saturday.

    We ask all smokers not to smoke in the house (we have a large courtyard)

    Sorry, but we do not take workawayers under the age of 25.
