  • Description


    We are happy to start our adventure as a Host in the south of France in a nice village near the lakes of Saint Jean and the natural park of the Alberes. There are plenty of outdoors activities to do around here such as hiking, climbing, skiing, canoeing/kayaking, trekking and we are also close to the beautyful playas of Spain. I am quiropractic and I live in a cosy house with garden and a beautiful orange tree, a small paradise of tranquility and relaxation, but also close to all services will allow volunteers to be independent and explore the surroundings by walking or biking. We love playing chess so we often have meeting with friends and play match. We speak various languages including Italian Spanish French English, which helps to share knowledge and skills in various fields. Especially if you have interests in the field of building and manuals skills, bike fixing, bricolage and also creativity you are in the right place! In fact I am leading a refreshing project of the interiors in terms of details such us placo installing, wall paintings and colouring details. We need an extra pair of hands also on facades and general maintenance.
    I prefer a staying of minimum 5 days and a maximum of two weeks for workawayers.
    I love to cook as well as organize a cookers team with simply and tasty recepy so it will be a pleasure to share my cuisine with you.

    We are looking for help both inside and out to maintain the house that needs some works like painting, house keeping, gardening and building, best if you have some experience about masonry.

    Our preference is that you are honest and straight up about where you can offer skills and what you might need training and supervision with. Looking for positive minded people, keen to help out.

    As a base line we ask 4 hours per day, but we are negotiable if the feel of the arrangement is good for everyone.
