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.

Help around the house
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.
You will have your own room downstairs, where the kitchen and bathroom is currently. Breakfast ONLY will be provided. There is a bakery and grocery shop in the village and numerous supermarkets nearby. You are welcome to use my cooking facilities.
The bus stop is within walking distance, from where you can basically get anywhere and there is a large town 2 km away, with plenty of bars, restaurants etc. There are loads of sports activities available close by.
