Dear workaway guests
Welcome to Pegomas on the attractive french riviera !
Closed from the mediterranean sea , the small town of Pegomas is beautifully situated between Grasse the perfums capital and the famous and glamour city of Cannes.It is the ideal starting point to visit many picturesque touristic places all around and enjoy the beautiful provencal nature.. as a former touristic manager it will be a pleasure for me to help you in the organization of your excursions !
We live in a large and confortable villa which I am busily preparing for sale. I am looking for a single or couple workaway to come and assist me with the tasks necessary :
Outdoor work in the garden (experience is most welcomed !) and around the swimming pool, indoor helping me to empty and clean the garages area etc
You will live in the villa with me and, on the week ends, my son Vincent, student in Nice. I love to cook and share meals over lively conversation (my english is ok and I can speak spanish..) and you will be my welcome guests. The help will be 4 hours per day usually in the mornings and after that you are free to enjoy the beautiful environs.
I should mention that I have a cat, Api (new in tahitian..) silent and sweet, and Singha a very energetic and loveable dog .
I am very sociable and happy person, and look forward to meet nice people and futur friends !
I have been travelling a lot in my life and spent long time in the south pacific. My hobbies are sports regarding to nature and sea, playing music (euphonium), painting, reading, cooking ! I dont work anymore but I used to work in tourism marketing and communication and journalism.
My expectations :
As guest in my home, apart from your workaway tasks, you will also help with such basic tasks as emptying the dishwasher, cleaning the table, doing the dishes or taking out the garbage. You will be responsible for your own laundry and are welcome to use my facilities. You will keep your room tidy and avoid leaving your things around the house and in the bathroom that is shared with us.
No phone at the table, no loud music, heavy drinking or partying and coming home at all hours of the night. It is important to me to share my home with respectful people who dont use it as a hotel but enjoy the joyfull and relaxed atmosphere that I also appreciate.
On occasion, if you have a long week end trip planned or special daily excursion, we can schedule your work hours in a flexible way to accomodate your plans.
I look forward to reading about who you are, what your goals are and what you hope to experience during your workaway stay in Pegomas.
Bien cordialement / All the best
