  • Description


    Denis and I moved to the south of France 10 years ago ago. We started off with a bed and breakfast and had some great workawayers to help us get the house into shape.
    We have now moved to a small village close by and are looking for help in the garden, a bit of painting and some maintenance. Mostly someone strong as we are a couple of weaklings
    The village is small with very few facilities, for this reason we would prefer a couple or two friends and your own transport would be a huge benefit to enable you to see the fabulous area we live in.
    We have good accommodation and will feed you well.

    What else ...

    We would prefer two people and just for a week at a time. It is also useful if you have your own transport as this is a small village but lots to visit round and about. There is a bus which goes into Narbonne but very limited service
