    Hi we live in a beautiful national forest in a nice home with a pool right on a river. We need some basic house help and gardening help especially in May and June. Cleaning, painting, sanding, organizing, gardening, help with the pool. Our most immediate need is for short-term helpers to get us set up for the summer.

    Our place is on a lovely river and right across the road from a 70km bike path through the Languedoc National Park. Non-smokers only We have bikes you can use.

    1. How much time is expected and the details of the tasks you need help with - We would ask for 4-5 hours per day 5 days per week.
    2. How meals and food will happen - We're not fancy cooks, but can keep a well stocked fridge

    3. Internet/Phone rules - free internet and landline phone

    4. Public transport info - the bus stops right in front of our hamlet and can take you to our local train station in Bédarieux

    5. Things to see and do locally - hiking, kayaking, wine tasting, olive tasting, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, rapelling, canyoning, mountain biking, road biking, 70km long soft road walking/cycling trail. Many morning markets and beautiful villages. Close to Olargues which is one of the most beautiful villages in France. Many castles and Abbeys within an hour of driving.

    6. Can you accommodate families/children/animals? - Couples preferred. No children please. Smoking is not permitted on the property. Dogs considered
