  • Description


    I love to share my home with like-minded people. In return for four hours each day, I can offer you a private bedroom and bathroom and your own terrace plus food!

    Tourrettes-sur-loup is a beautiful place to live. Equidistant from the beach and the mountains, it has fewer tourists than other local villages. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, getting back to nature, then this is the place for you.

    Ideally, I would like someone who can stay for a minimum of two weeks as part of this wonderful Workaway experience is getting to know each other.

    The house itself is a bit isolated with only a few buses each day to get you to the nearer towns of Vence and/or Grasse. From there it is possible to get down to the coast and the train services. Obviously, I will help with lifts/pickups where I can.

    My own work - I founded a charity in Kenya - keeps me busy most days and I usually visit the girls in Kenya twice each year. I am more than happy to share some of that with you too if you find yourself interested in learning more!

    In addition to my Kenyan family, I have family and friends scattered across France, Norway, Montreal, and the UK - all of whom I love to visit as time allows.

    I am looking for someone who is flexible and easygoing - I don't do drama! Each day could be different in terms of what needs doing. The most important tasks are to keep the garden under control, keep the terraces swept and ensure the pool is clean enough to swim in. Depending on your length of stay, there could be other small projects like a bit of painting or tidying up the garage. Household tasks are usually better shared, so if you like cooking, we can learn from each other. I would expect you to keep your own areas clean and tidy.
