I am renovating a big house with my partner who speaks only French and we require a little help. The house is situated in front of the Canal du Midi within minutes walking distance to a supermarket and restaurants . I have 3 cats so I can not accommodate anyone who suffers from allergy and prefer someone who appreciates being around cats as well as they are very important to us. The living accommodation for the work awayers is a completely independent self contained cosy and very comfortable studio with wifi and Tv and kitchenette.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Working and living in a French and or English speaking environment and having the opportunity to visit this wonderful region.
Painting walls and staircases, some experience in painting is required, some help required organising and clean up of work site etc
My partner speaks French and a little English, he would very much like some practice with his English and he can be helpful to someone with their french. We would both love to learn Spanish so that would be great to have a Spanish couple to help out. Its not a criteria though.
Lovely new Studio by the Canal du Midi in Homps which is fully self contained, only basic requirements like tea and coffee breakfadt cereal available in the apartment and some essentials, lunch provided. The studio has a separate entrance to the main house.
I think this would be most suitable for a couple with a car wanting a cheap break by offering a little help in return. Nearest train station is in Lezignan Corbieres, which is half way between Carcassonne and Narbonne. There is a weekly market in Olonzac on Tuesday morning only 2km away and bicycles are here for your use. I recommend having a car to be able to explore the area yourselves and be independent.
