  • Description


    Just arriving in Arles for a year in a house that needs some renovations - not heavy works anymore but with a lot of details to fix (needing wood work, for the most) . And in the garden too.
    I have 4 bedrooms, so enough place to host a single or a couple. The place is in town, very near the historical center of Arles, beautiful as much as the Alpilles or the beach not far at all. Walks in Camargue and in Provence are great. And cities as Avignon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nîmes are easy to reach by train.
    My project here is to open a house welcoming for artists of every kind, sometime just for recharging energy and ideas, sometime for working a project...

    WOOD works (building little things, fixing a door...) , painting walls, windows and doors, fixing little things, gardening, buiding a little wall...
    I am a writer but want also to work with tissues - so I need help to use better my sawing machine.

  • Accommodation


    a nice room, very quiet and large enough to have a table. Meals are simple but organic (possible for vegetarians but I eat some meat and fish now, because getting older). Vegetables and fruits in Provence are very good.
