  • Description

    Description

    We are a bi-ligual (French and English) family of three. 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 Moliére, Pézenas has a beautiful historic centre housing a variety of artist ateliers, restaurants and bars. I am an actor at the theatre in town and Laurence is a make-up artist. Our youngest son Blaise is in year 2 of secondary school.

We are looking for a fit, non-smoking, addiction-free couple or friend who enjoy working outdoors. We offer bed and board return for 5 hours work a day.
