  • Description


    We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children, horses, dogs and cats) living in the south of France in the beautiful rural village of Murs. We are currently renovating our property and our two Rental cottages and would be grateful of help with a wide variety of tasks which include everything from painting, gardening, dry stone wall building, forest tidying, general DIY etc. Our list of projects is endless so all skills will come in handy! We would like to invite a couple/two individuals willing to stay in a private fully furnished cottage. Food will be provided during the stay and in return we ask for about 4-5 hours of work 5 days a week.

    HELP NEEDED IN MARCH/APRIL & MAY 2018 ONLY. Please note that we are unable to accommodate/host during the Summer season as our accommodation is then used as a rental property.
