  • Description

    I've volunteered previously and helped out in smallholdings, vineyards, small hostel/chambres d'hotes, dogsitting. I'd love to continue learning about local produce, wine, growing/permaculture, tourism. I love anything food & wine related, gardening, being in nature, dogs, having the chance to meet people from other places. I also taught English to international students for a long time and have a mix of other experience including hospitality, admin and giving wine tastings/tours. (I have WSET level 3).

    I'm flexible helping on different projects as needed - all is an experience! Respecting somewhere and keeping it clean and tidy is a given :-) I am happy working both independently and in a team and love the opportunity of Workaway to meet new people and learn new things. I have good conversational French and Italian and happy to help you with English. Perhaps I can also introduce you to English wine... yes we do...
