    Description

    I am a retired older woman living by the sea. I have been an active person with many friends, having lived in the area for over 30 years. I have enjoyed having workaways to stay for many years. I am looking for a mature couple, non smokers, to live on the property for the minimum of a month. Please do not apply if you are under 21.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will be able to enjoy living in the South of France near the beach in the village of Cavaliere. Interaction with local people will be in shops and possibly at boules. There is opportunity to book French lessons if required. Depending on the season you will be able to enjoy walks, and swimming and visit French markets. Two bicycles are available for your use. The old railway line has been converted to paths for walking, jogging and cycling.

    The volunteering involves shopping in the local town, preparation of some meals and clearing up, light gardening duties and watering plants all with a friendly presence. I do need some help with evening cooking but not every meal. I have a cleaner who comes in once a fortnight. I also have someone who comes in to help me in the mornings. It would be preferable and welcome but not essential for the volunteer to have own car but a driving licence is important and must be able to drive a manual car. Do not apply unless you can drive a manual car!. Basic French is useful. French lessons might be available locally. I am English so you will need to speak good English.

    A minimum of a 2 month stay is preferable but less could be Ok sometimes. I may need help with various other things like sometimes I may need advice about my computer (but not often) and If you like playing scrabble that will be a bonus! I welcome people with a friendly disposition to my house. I have become friends with many workaways who have stayed here in the past.
    You can enjoy all the pleasures offered by being close to the beach with cycling, walking and exploring one of the most beautiful parts of France.
