  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We accept both skilled or unskilled people, however we need people able to work on their own and use their own initiative. You will need your own footwear suitable for outside work. We live in a peaceful location in rural France 1hr from Bordeaux & 45 mins from Bergerac. St Emillion is a half hour drive, so the need of a car to get you around. We are around 10mins drive to a train station. Which opens up the train network.

    We are non smoking and are seeking helpers that do not smoke, sorry we can not accommodate families or any dogs.

    We are meat eaters and can accommodate vegetarians but not vegans.

    We can pick up and drop off at the local train station and there is a daily bus service to Libourne.

    The countryside around here is mostly hilly and we are surrounded by vineyards.
