Anyone fancy to help us do some gardening, painting, cleaning, tidying up...... We can accommodate 1 or 2 people for a maximum of 2 weeks.
We do not expect you to be skilled workers but you need to be strong, a handy person and willing to learn.
17 years ago, we moved from busy Greater London to the south west of France leaving behind our well paid office jobs for a complete change of life style in the French country side near Carcassonne. From our former lives, David has taken his skills in Electronics to become a builder, working mainly on renovation projects and Ariane has taken her skills in Marketing to run our 4 holiday homes. We also have a dog, 2 cats and a horse.
We are a multinational couple, David is English and Ariane is German so lots of languages are spoken in our house. In our leisure time David loves making music, painting and improving our properties, Ariane is a keen rider. We are easy going, very flexible, like cooking and sitting round the fire place in the winter and in summer on our roof terrace enjoying a glass of wine.
In the winter we live on Domaine du Moulin, our property with extensive grounds of great natural beauty. Accommodation would be in one of our holiday homes, when available, or in our house (maison cypres on the website) and we have a heated pool (April to October).
From end of April to the end of September we live on our now very comfortable building site in Magrie, a charming village nearer Limoux.
NO FUSSY EATERS PLEASE e.g. vegeterians, vegans ...!

Should you not have a car, we take you to some of the tourist attractions in the area for example the fortress of Carcassonne, Limoux, Rennes-le-Chateau, the enchanted garden in Alet-les-Bains...
At the moment, we need help in the garden, gite changeovers, tidying up.... We also want to finish our pool in Magrie, point walls, building a terrace roof.... We do not expect you to be skilled workers but you need to be strong, a handy person and willing to learn.
Accommodation will be in our holiday homes depending on availability or in the guest room in our house.
Since we live in the country side a car is needed if you want some independence.
