  • Description

    Description

    We, Regis and David, are a married couple who decided to make a life change and leave everything behind to follow a dream: A guesthouse in Provence.
    After a long search we have found an amazing property in Gordes in the Luberon Valley. It took us almost a year to renovate and we have started receiving our first guests in the summer of 2017.
    We are located in the heart of Provence and Gordes has the classification of one of the most beautiful French villages, so needless to say that we get very busy in the season - hence we are looking for someone who can help us with breakfast service and light tasks around the B&B. In the month of March (pre-season) we look for help with setting up the property for the season, so more of a handy-(wo)mans job. We offer a minimum wage of €8,03 per working hour.
    We both love to meet and entertain people from all over the world. We speak multiple languages (french, english, german, turkish and some spanish). If you are good with kitchen tasks and can hold friendly and respectful conversations with strangers easily, we think you would be a good match.
    Our season goes from April to November.
