  • Description


    We are a couple living in a remote place in the hills in southern France, about an hour from Narbonne.
    We have 3 donkeys, 2 chickens and 2 dogs.
    I am going to the university in the UK so I won't be here all be here all the time, though my husband will be and he works mainly from home.
    We are looking for someone (or a couple) to come and stay to help take care of the animals and gardens. We have a few building building maintenance jobs, and some fence repairs.
    Long- term is possible if it suits us all.
    We have a lovely self contained place for you to stay, with all your own facilities to take care of yourselves.
    You will need transport as we are very remote, the nearest town is about 20 mins drive.
    Would suit calm, sensible, laid back, realistic, self sufficient person/people with a love of animals and the quiet life!
