  • Description

    Description

    We are a bi-lingual (French and English) fmiddle aged couple and now our two sons have left home it's just us, two tortoises and three chickens.
    We live in a wooden house on the edge of the lively town of Pézenas in the heart of wine country. We are a 20 minutes drive from the Mediterranean coast and within easy access of rivers, lakes and rolling countryside. Known as the Ville de Molière, Pézenas has a beautiful historic centre housing a variety of artist ateliers, restaurants and bars. I am an actor and Laurence is a make-up artist.
    We are looking for help in the maintenance of our property that would involve gardening, minor building and general cleaning and clearing of our land and natural pool/fish pond.
    Ideally we are seeking two friends or a couple prepared to take on physical labour. As our house is built on a hillside it would also help if they were half goat ;-)
    Accommodation is a self-contained flat suitable for a single person, a couple or two friends.
