Hi Dear travel Workawayer,
The house with garden is near a town named Sanary and near the sea side, only 10 minutes walking distance. Some work has to be done in the garden and in the different flats of the house for painting and general improvements. I have not pet or no children. The location is great for someone who likes the sea, the sun, the culture, wine and languages in Provence/French Riviera. I am living on my own and receive some foreign tourists, most of them German, in summer.
You do not need to have special abiliy, but mother tongue English, German or Spanish would be appreciated. I would enjoy to give some French lessons in exchange of English/German or Spanish lessons on the other side.
I have worked already with foreign students and I have travelled a lot in Europe. I am flexible, reliable and love speaking English or German. Meals with a lot of local vegetables and organic products and some fish and meat products too.
I am looking for someone enthusiastic and positive. I am 50 but seems 40, I have a passion for cooking, travelling in Europe, economy, history, psychology, languages, open for new fields. I am honest, reliable and trustworthy. A private bedroom would be available but not ensuite.

Living in a town between Provence and French Riviera with local contacts, and sharing meals with the owner. A lot of sport possibilities too with tennis club, sea side, walking, jogging... There is a bus stop near the house and the train station is on the line Marseille-Nice. It is a place easy to reach by train and coach. We could have a lot of conversation and working on French and other languages on a daily basis.
I would prefer one male person. There would be a private bedroom but not ensuite. Most of the work would be gardening, painting and language exchange (French- English or German or Spanish). It could be some improvements of the flats too. But the house is not so big.
A private room with shared bathroom and living area, with own TV, wifi and balcony.
I enjoy going to the local market and prepare some local vegetables or local fishes and some meat. This would be shared with the guest as an exchange. But I am not a great eater of meat.
The situation is more appropriate for people who like nature and not big towns, even if big towns are not so far. But the house is not isolated and the town centre and sea side are 10 minutes walking distance. I would prefer early bird people.
