We are a famous garden, holding the "Remarkable Garden" label from the French Ministry of Culture. Situated in the medieval village of Coursegoules in South of France, 45 mins drive from Nice.

Looking immediately for 7-10 days
1 to 2 persons to help us doing anything garden related. The garden is on a mountainside with stairs everywhere, pretty physically demanding so those who are unable to lift and cary 30 kilos need not apply.
Please no fussy eaters, like vegan etc.... Vegetarians are ok.
Thanks for reading!
The accommodation (in our home) is a pretty spacious private room that is a little loft above a sitting room, adjacent with my art studio. There is a nice bed 160x200, place to hang clothes, bedside tables, etc. There is a door to this room so you have complete privacy at night, during the day I have to walk though the sitting room to get to my Art studio but there are curtains you can close. Also one of the rentals is below this room so you can not make a lot of noise when we have a renter down there, when not, you can do whatever you want. You have your own bathroom+shower that we occasionally use because it is downstairs by the kitchen.
In Coursegoules, 1000 meters above sea level. This is a real, authentic French countryside village, hardly any tourists know about this area of the Cote D'Azur. We are located in the middle of rolling hills and mountains, a paradise for nature lovers, hikers & explorers. There is an old Roman chapel on the mountain surrounded my grazing sheep, a secret crystal clear waterfall with swimming pond, old forests, hiking trails in every direction, etc... You are also welcome to enjoy home, picnic in the garden, terraces, pool, etc...
Public transportation is a little tricky here. We have a "shuttle" Coursegoules-Vence/Vence Coursegoules Monday-Friday 8:00-16:00 by reservation (cost 1 euro). From Vence you have bus connections to the whole south of France, though your choices to what to do are somewhat limited if you have to get the bus back to Coursegoules at 16:00.. Most school kids hitchhike back to the village if they miss the shuttle. Vence/St. Paul de Vence are close and very nice, and offer all the "City" stuff. You can get to Nice in 1.5 hours on public transport. We can also offer you rides with us too! And if you want to bring your car here you can. But this is really the place for people who want to get away from city life and be in the fabulous French countryside.
