    Hi deep-France lovers!

    Welcome in the Languedoc's countryside in our team...
    I've been restoring this old house for three years with friends and we do every type of jobs: masonry, gardening, carpentry, an helper even set up a forge! We also decorate, make plasters and fine painting in the chapel; it's nice if you have skills (specially if you like carpentry ther e masterpieces to make) but there is also place for beginners. We work a good five hours a day (not on Sunday!) but it's flexible: feel really free to take days out to enjoy the area, we're near Saint-Guilhem-le-désert and many other beautiful places to visit.

    It's a XVII century house that comes from my family, lot of character and space but only matress to sleep on; comfort of XXIst century is now set up: electricity, washing-maching and even hot water in the bathroom... Although it's too geek for the house, wi-fi is there. And a well-tuned piano, just do it!

    We cook together and we look forward to combine local and world recipes... Those who love nature, heritage, sun, young and lively atmosphere (friends and cousins are coming for helping all summer long) are very welcome to bring an international flavour to our traditional french way of living.

    See u,

    Vincent
