    Description

    I live 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 help with maintaining the large garden including growing vegtables, keeping the grounds neat and tidy and full of flowers. An interest in ecology would be an asset. Work times can be just mornings leaving the rest of the day free to explore this beautiful area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The village is part of Cathare Country, the seat of the renaissance, so offers a unique cultural experience. There is an active bar just along the road with locally produced ales and often musical entertainment. The area has many outstanding natural features and is a haven for cyclists and walkers. Both French and English are widely spoken so the opportunity for improving in both these languages exists.

    I need a person to help me with the garden, which has both fruit and vegtables. An interest in ecology so we work in a green and environmentally friendly way would be an asset.
