We're a Scottish/English couple who have lived in France for 13 years. We are both full-time teachers with three young children, all born in France so bilingual. We're moving to a new house with independent apartment in a small picturesque village (with local pub) in the Alpes de Haute Provence so will need a little help with gardening/decorating/dog walking/odd jobs. Would suit a young couple/individual who like people, children, dogs, music (we're all musicians) a relaxed home life and a few hours of good honest labour every day in exchange for food, laughs and a beautiful, calm environment.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
People who can decorate and are practical in the house or garden are very welcome.
