    Hello Workawayers!

    We are Julia and David, lifelong friends who recently fulfilled our dream of purchasing a charming house in the heart of Marseillan, a picturesque village in the South of France. With more than 25 years of friendship, we decided to embark on this exciting journey together, and now we're inviting you to be a part of it!

    Let us introduce ourselves. Julia, originally from Germany, now lives on the tropical island of Mauritius with her two wonderful daughters. David, on the other hand, is French and resides in Paris when he's not in Sicily, Mauritius, India, or Martinique. We both have a passion for travel, and our adventures have taken us to many corners of the globe. We appreciate different cultures and love immersing ourselves in new experiences.
    In our free time, we enjoy practicing yoga, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, and indulging in the delightful flavors of French wine. David also happens to be quite the musician and can often be found strumming his guitar and singing along.

    Join us for an unforgettable experience in the South of France, where the Mediterranean lifestyle and French culture merge to create a unique and captivating atmosphere. Apply now and let's embark on this exciting journey together!

    Marseillan is for us not just a place to spend the holidays; it's a sanctuary where we can come together, relax, and enjoy the beauty of life. We believe in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, where everyone feels comfortable and respected.
    During your time off, you'll have ample opportunity to explore the enchanting village of Marseillan. Discover its cobbled streets, visit the local markets, and soak up the vibrant atmosphere in the charming cafés. The nearby Mediterranean Sea is just a short distance away, offering pristine beaches and a chance to relax under the warm sun.
