    I am renovating a 19thC Maison de Maître and relandscaping a garden to make it more climate friendly. The main focus of the next couple of months is to work on the garden to clear it for planting. I am gardening organically, guided by a couple of more experienced gardeners who run and organic landscape gardening company and nursery. Its a stone built house dating from1880. The renovation of the house is being done to preserve its original fabric while at the same time improve energy efficiency. Anyone with experience in restoration would be more than welcome.

    The house is in a village in the heart of the Minervois which is a wine-growing region. Its a great place to experience rural France. There are many farms and wineries that practice innovative bio-dynamic and organic techniques. Driving licence and car a plus to explore the area but I can also lend bicycles. My mother tongue is English but I speak good French and can speak either. There are beautiful walks in the countryside. The local village has a heated indoor swimming pool.

    I am looking for people who are happy to get stuck into general maintenance jobs in the house and gardening. Painting, gardening, carpentry skills would be wonderful but anyone with a cheerful and positive attitude would be great. The tasks will change as the project moves forward. Interest in old houses, restoration a definite bonus.

    I came here from London, looking for a change of lifestyle after many years working in media. I have previously worked in Paris and before that in Italy. Local public transport is a bit spotty but will help with lifts where possible. Nearest towns are Carcassonne and Narbonne both of which have train connections. Locally there are pretty wine villages, a landscape of vineyards, beautiful hikes and bike rides.
