Hi, We are Honor and Holly (my daughter )- with an old Farmhouse based in a charming authentic village in the Aude (part of Languedoc) Easily accessible from airports etc we are in between Roman Narbonne and Medieval Carcassonne (both must sees on your stay!) and 35 minutes from the Med. And 5 minutes from the most gorgeous river which is great for swimming in. And of course lots of lovely walks.
My business is running holiday apartments. I have three gites and from March to October it can be NON stop! I have hosted workawayers for over 5 years now ...one of my most recent ones was with me for over two years! So we tend to become one happy family.
It would be ideal (for you ) if you have a car so you can get around this beautiful region, that way you will get the most out of it here . There is a lot to see!
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Well we are English in France so you can benefit from two cultures and some fab (so others say) British cooking with a French twist. I am very inclusive so you will be able to join in with local events and fun things that go on and enjoy this beautiful landscape. My daughter is bilingual and my french is improving daily !
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Help needed for painting .maintenance and plenty of gardening tasks ( I have the opposite to green fingers!)
I am looking for someone who is resourceful, and if you know how to use a drill and have some basic carpentry skills that would be a bonus
Also someone who loves exercise and cooking is most welcome as I love to do both but need inspiration!
