    Description

    I’m returning from London in April, and are looking for a couple or indeed a single person to help me get the villa and garden ready for the beautiful spring .
    So flexible help and company would be very welcome.
    I would prefer a minimum of 1 weeks stay preferable 2.
    I’ll be working alongside you, and are always delighted to learn something new such as gardening or cooking.


    I like to start working from 9 in the morning 5 days a week (4 hours)
    but I am flexible and wish you to be so too.
    If you wish a full day off to explore a town that’s fine too

    Accommodation is Double bedroom own bathroom
    A great opportunity for you to explore the beautiful Cote D'Azur
    (If you are vegetarian of vegan I'm afraid I can not cater for you. Unless you would prefer to do your own cooking

    I have had some wonderful help from WorkAway in the past! Delightful surroundings and good weather!!
    You must be trustworthy and kind but fun to be around!!! Tidy is also important in general!
    Vence is lovely and it’s ease to make local friends if you so wish we are close to Nice, just a bus ride away.

    I don't always have time to look at this website so a phone call will get my attention as I always answer or I will call back!! I do not need help in June July August

    Welcome, Åsa

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I’m Swedish my husband English, my French is limited so if you are interested in improving your French I’m not of much help unless my children are visiting (ages 20 to 30) they went to school in France so are fluent. However as a trained cook i love working in the kitchen and will on many occasions take you with me to markets and if you are staying longer I’m sure we will go to visit the fantastic vegetable and fruit market in Italy. We entertain often during spring and summer.
    My husband works in London but comes down to France most weekends.
    I have hosted for many years and really love the company of my guests, and delighted with any advice given on gardening and cooking.
    I love walking in the beautiful countryside of Vence and hope you will join me too.
    Vence is a super town with many museums and other attractions, great bus service to the sea side or towns of Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo. And much more.
    Welcome
