We, Béatrice 63 and Hans 73, live in a tiny village in the south of France. After having lived for 30 years in the mountains we moved to this tiny village at 400 meters high and about one hour drive from the mediterranean. Béatrice is French and Hans Dutch. We looking for one or two youngsters (not smoking) who are going to help us with the garden. The previous owners of this (almost new) house didn't do anything, so it is a big mass. Our house is situated in an protected reserve and there are interesting villages nearby. Beautiful hiking paths plane and in the mountains, aswell as several lakes where you can swim are around us.
