  • Description

    Description

    I'm Wendy and I'm a wine expert. I run a wine tour business based in the Languedoc region of Southern France. I live with my partner Fisher in a small wine producing village about 15 mins from Carcassonne in the Languedoc region of southern France. It is a beautiful part of the world which enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year. It is steeped in a history and the landscape is spectacular.

    We are renovating and old stone building which will be our home. Over the past 12 months we have made good progress but there is still much to do. We would like to find people with a building skill to help with things like stone wall building, building an outdoor staircase, plastering and general building experience. In return we can offer comfortable accommodation and the chance to learn about the wine of the Languedoc region.
