  • Description


    Hello Workawayers,

    We are the proprietors of a large Bed & Breakfast (Chambres d’Hôtes) located in the hamlet of Aubrac, in the Aveyron department of France, at a height of 1365 meters. We are a multinational family of three who travel abroad during the off-season. This village of Aubrac is situated on the pilgrimage path of Saint Jacques de Compostelle in France and near the villages of Saint Côme d'Olt, Espalion and a 45 minute drive to the city of Rodez. Aubrac is a very small village with an exceptionally beautiful and peaceful enviroment. We invite you to help us to provide a quality service for our guests in a beautifully restored hotel in the French countryside.

    We are looking for enthusiastic workawayers for the months of April through October 2021 for a minimum of a 4 week stay or longer. It is required that you have a good level of conversational french. We are prepared to offer comfortable accomodations, meals, and wages.

    There are rooms to be cleaned and prepared, and at times this work can be quite demanding and this is where team work comes in. Hours of work may very from day to day but will be mostly mornings. You will help us during the breakfast so it is important that you have a positive, friendly disposition and feel very comfortable speaking with guests. Our guests represent many different nationalities but are mostly French speaking.

    If you enjoy nature and quiet, and if getting away from the city's hustle and bustle for a few weeks is your call, then this could be your destination. We are in a remote location where there is minimal public transportation.

    If you like hiking and the outdoors, this is a great location as there are many beautiful trails that lead to forests, magnificent plateaus, and lakes, that also connect to the neighboring villages and towns.

    You can enjoy the tranquility and calm to read, write, meditate, or yoga, if that is something that you enjoy.

    We look forward to hearing from you soon.
