  • Description

    Description

    I run a chambres d'hote in a small village in a beautiful part of France. The house is traditional stone build with terrace and 6,000 sq metres of orchard, forest and potager. The local environment is spectacular with many natural features. We are on a long distance walking route called the sentier Cathare so many of our clients are walkers. The area is also regarded as one of the best in France for cycling. The Mediteranean is one and a half hours drive away. The village has a swimming lake with a beach, a bar serving locally produced real ales and in summer a couple of restaurants lakeside.
    I need someone to work alongside me as I am running the business myself. Indoors the main tasks are helping with breakfasts, servicing the rooms when guests leave, recycling the linen and helping with evening meals. Workload varies at different times of the season from as little as 2 hours a day to maybe 4 or 5. I could also benefit from help in the large garden including maximising the productive output of healthy vegtables for the chambres d'hote. This is likely to be a separate person. In addition to free board and lodging I am happy to pay for hours worked at local rates (based on the minmum wage).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The village is part of Cathare Country, the seat of the renaissance, so offers a unique cultural experience. Whilst the majority of our guests are French (of which a working knowledge would be pretty essential) we attract guests primarily from all European countries.

    Help

    I need help both inside the house with serviceing rooms and cooking evening meals but also possibly a separate person to take responsibility for the land, producing fruit and vegtables from the land in a green and environmentally friendly way.

    Accommodation

    The house has 4 rooms for guests (5 if needed) but has separate accommodation for family and workawayers in the same building. Food is provided for all meals. The business tends to be busy from May to October but there are often days with no bookings when travel will be possible. July and August do tend to be pretty manic though. At a minimum well organised workawayers can expect to be free every day from around 11.00am to 4.30pm.
