I live on the outskirts of a rural village surrounded by fields in France (Languedoc) about 10mins from Limoux. For the past six years I have been building a house myself and now it is nearing finishing. I am looking for singles or a couple to come and help me finish off so that I can let it out later in the summer. It is all coming together well and I am looking for help in the large garden, to finish the swimming pool (nearly there and should be ready soon) and help with general work including tiling the patio. I would like people to stay for as long as they are happy up until the end of June. In return for your help I will try and share with you the area. I have no skills requests but would rather work with smiles.

I am English living in France in a region famous for wine production so wine tasting and touring could definitely be on the agenda. this is a beautiful area and you can practise the language, enjoy the weather. I am an hour and a quarter from the coast, Spain and Andorra and am happy for people to do all their hours in 2 or 3 days leaving them free to use this as a base to travel if they wish
