    Hello (Bonjour) future visitor/visitors!

    Situated in the Camargue at Aigues-Mortes and near the famous Espiguette beach; We have an old Mas (country home) that needs a bit of TLC (tender loving care).

    Im having 5 months of work to fix up the house and garden but i am not really a manual person as I usually work all the time running a holiday resort.

    We are use to having aupair's, exchange students, live in guests, workaway's and not to mention plenty of family and friends ... its the way this house lives in a good ambience. The décision to welcome Workaway travellers has become part of this house, family & friends and myself will welcome you and are happy exchange.

    NOTE, Originally from Australia so english is spoken a lote here too, having travelled and lived in all sorts of situations and locations... with a big family that also travels and comes and goes constantly, my sister is also doing workaway on her farm in Australia.
