  • Description


    We are at the tail end of a major renovation project in the South of France, which is a home and a residential school for Five-Element acupuncture. We are both acupuncturists and although we live here we also go to London for a few days at a time to see our patients. Most importantly we need someone at the house to look after our two very friendly dogs (golden retriever and a labrador) and cat and to drop and collect us off at the airport. We also need someone to help us with some decorating and work in the garden and when the students/guests are in the house helping make them feel happy and comfortable.

    You will have use of our car for jobs relating to the house and you are also free to use it for your personal use when available.

    Our house is set in the centre of a traditional wine-making village (Roujan) in the unspoilt Languedoc region of the south of France in southern Europe, We are only 25 minutes' drive from the the Mediterranean, 30 minutes from Béziers and 50 minutes from Montpellier. The house is about 7km from the nearest big town. We are also a stone's throw away from the best gay resort in Europe!

    Looking for someone throughout the year.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are passionate about our work as acupuncturists and have students who stay at the house to learn, so if alternative health care is of interest you could learn a great deal. The people who have stayed with us have been treated as part of our family/community and encouraged to join any activities we do. The atmosphere in the house is very warm and friendly with many guests coming and going.

  • Help


    As well as help with some decorating and light gardening, most importantly we are looking for someone who is comfortable to take on full responsibility of our dogs and cat when we go back to London to see our patients (about three days at any one time - on average every two weeks) and feel confident to drive us to and collect us from local airports.
