  • Description


    We open a café in march in Figeac , and we need volunteer to renovate the shop. We are a couple of 35 years old, who like make trips and to meet different nationalities..My husband is cook, and I'm teacher: Two years ago we have bought a lovely stone house in Lot, a beautiful area, in the vallée du Célé not far from Rocamadour, very near Figeac . We have nearly finished the renovation of the house and we attack barns... I can speak fluently english. The house is situated, in the ''Vallée du Célé'', next to St Cirq Lapopie and Rocamadour, 10mn of Figeac, and it's possible to trek from the house start of some GR, and on the way of St Jacques de Compostelle. The place is very quiet and in middle of landscape. Possible to swim in the river. Hello,
    we need "work away" for early May, and this summer in July and August, we have a project that has advanced and changed a little bit of purpose ... we import furniture from India and we receive a container end of April or at the beginning of May..of the move we need the world to unload, unpack and open the packages, to reference, to install ...
    And this summer we need help to keep our little girl with us in Marcilhac sur célé, a pretty paradisiac place where you can go canoeing, swim and make beautiful walks. Atmosphere guaranteed all summer, it's very lively.
