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.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have built the house and natural pool from scratch, learning many trades and skills along the way and would be happy to share our knowledge
The house is built on the side of a hill and we need help to finish off the garden and surrounding land, pruning the trees, landscaping, paving and generally tidying up. 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.
You would be staying in our gîte. It opens out to the lower garden and has it's own entrance from the street. There is a main and a small bedroom, an open-plan kitchen/lounge and bathroom with walk-in shower. As well as WiFi there are pushbikes at your disposal.
