  • Description

    Description

    I am South African, but bought my home in France two years ago. It is an old stone house in the mediaeval centre of the village. I plan to semi-retire there, but I will continue to teach English. I am currently teaching English to private students in Moscow and have taught students of all age-groups and levels in Cairo, Dubai and of course, South Africa.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will experience life in a small French village as well as benefitting from my English teaching skills.
    Ideally located between sea and mountains, the village of Le Poujol-sur-Orb is nestled at the foot of massive Caroux and Espinouse mountain range. With its vast chestnut forests, not far from the Crus vineyards and its fragrant scrubland, the village offers a wide range of activities permitted by an exceptional environment.

    I require help to renovate, clean and paint indoors. The house has been modernised slightly, but there is still a great deal of work that needs to be done.
