  • Description


    We are a couple who have moved into a new house 3 years ago. And we did a lot of work. We would need help to help us clean the land, prune trees, shrubs, prepare the garden for future planting, stewardship, cleaning, cooking, etc ... in return: Spartan accommodation in the house not yet finished and improvement in French of course if necessary.

    We are looking for someone who is motivated to get up in the morning, good with their hands and a bit of a maniac to do things the best they can.

    We are located in Provence in the south-east of France, are opposite an aerodrome gliding center, 5 km from Lake Saint-Cassien, surrounded by several typical Provencal villages.
    We are equipped with dry toilets, we also have to rebuild some dry stone walls, anyone with knowledge in these areas or in tree pruning is welcome !!

    Nous sommes un couple qui avons d'emménagé dans une nouvelle maison il y a 3 ans déjà. Et nous avons fait de grands travaux. Nous aurions besoin d'aide pour nous aider à nettoyer le terrain, tailler des arbres, arbuste, préparer les le jardin pour les futures plantations, l'intendance, le ménage, la cuisine, etc ... en contrepartie : hébergement spartiate dans la maison pas encore terminée et perfectionnement en français bien-sûr si besoin.

    Nous cherchons quelqu'un de motivé pour se lever le matin, habile de ses mains et un peu maniaque pour faire les choses du mieux qu'il pourra.

    Nous sommes situés en Provence dans le sud-est de la France, sommes en face d'un aérodrome centre de vol à voile, à 5 km du Lac de Saint-Cassien, entourés de plusieurs villages typiquement provençaux.
    Nous sommes équipés en toilettes sèches, nous devons aussi reconstruire quelques murs en pierre sèche, toute personne ayant des connaissance en dans ces domaines ou en taille d'arbre est la bienvenue !!
