    We live in the wonderful, vibrant, Cote D'Azur, near Cannes. We manage a beautiful self- catering holiday complex in the Alpes Maritimes, We have had over 200 wonderful workaways and some have returned. The longest people have stayed is 3 months and we do offer a 2 week minimum for a workaway.

    To give you an idea we are 7kms away from the capital of perfume Grasse. The bus leaves from Cabris 2kms away and once you are in Grasse 15 minutes away you can go anywhere for 1.50 euros. Nice, Cannes, Antibes, St Tropez, There is so much to explore and so many fetes going on. After all we are in the most premier areas of France, the Cote D'Azur.

    What will you get from helping here? It is a holiday complex it has a pool (april-october), tennis court, and table tennis and is set in 1.5 acres of grounds. We have over 50kms of walking directly from the property. The views are amazing to coast of Cannes and down into the hills. The majority of workaways that come here have been travelling around for a while and they just come here and chill and go at a slower pace. Therefore this place is a 'holiday' on your time off and you may use all the facilities.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We do not have a bus service going past the property. You have to walk 30 minutes into the nearest small town to get the bus into Grasse (although we will drop you off and pick you up). From there you can take the bus to Grasse and go by bus or train to the major places of the Cote D'Azur. You won't have to walk back we will pick you up.
    We pay for help here for work related to the business and part of it is offset towards your accommodation.

    In order to be paid you would have to have a French social insurance number if you are from Europe. And a work visa for France/social insurance number if you are not from Europe. You would also have to also have a French bank account as we do not pay cash nor foreign banks.





    We are in the South of France (amazingly people don't know where Cannes is!).

    We are near Grasse 5kms, the capital of perfume (5km), and vibrant Cannes (30 minutes by car). These are all accessible by public cheap transport.

    Provence Alpes Azur – plenty to do and see, lots of events and festivals going on. For information check out the website angloinfocotedazur and choose what’s on.

    The ideal place to chill out. The views alone are wonderful aside from being surrounded by nature at every turn. You can do as little or as much as you want in this area. Grasse is a wonderful town close by historic and nice to meander around. Antibes, Nice, Cannes - all on the coast and easily accessible. If you have a car, the hills beyond Saint Vallier are stunning and all the hilltop villages to explore. You will never be disappointed wherever you go.

    The food is incredible, the people are wonderful, the history, culture and diversity of France is amazing. Have a trip down to the beach in Cannes and watch the world go by.



    If you just want to chill out and enjoy the area then after working you can do this. The winter weather here is mild and sunny.
