    Happy to host vaccinated/Covid tested travellers.

    I am self-employed in France as a professional wine and gastronomy tour guide. I live in a small community of boat owners in my very cozy Dutch ex sailing barge built in 1930. I'm scaling my work back now as I need to spend time on repairs and renovation of this beautiful historic barge. Due to COVID I am not able to work in tourism at the moment.

    There's tasks to be done on both the inside and the outside of my barge so I'm looking for someone with the relevant skills to help me. Please do not apply if you do not have significant relevant experience.

    I don't need help with my business, cooking, animal care or language skills, just boat maintenance or useful skills such as carpentry, painting, even welding - thank you very much :-)

    In return for help, I can teach you about wine, take you on wine tasting events and sightseeing in the region (this is one of the most beautiful regions in France). I can help with your English or your French.

    I live on a 21m dutch barge in Burgundy and I also run wine and gastronomy tours in the region. I never have enough time to do all the maintenance required on my boat, and now I need help with work both inside and out. I am moored on a pretty part of the inland waterway but shops and restaurants (and a station) are close by. I need a generally handy person able to undertake carpentry, electrics or plumbing, chop wood, move heavy things - and there's always sanding and painting to be done in the right weather, but someone just very practical and able to fix things who can perhaps turn their hand to anything!

    There's only space to sleep one person. I have an eight year old cat so you must be an animal lover and particularly love cats. I am happy to provide meals during working hours i.e breakfast, lunches etc and the occasional dinner when I am there.

    I am not a language teacher but you don't need French to stay here, you will need English however.

    A private cabin in the boat or an alternative solution. Ideal if you are travelling in a campervan also.

    In your time off you are within easy reach of the station which will take you into Beaune, Dijon, or Chalon sur Saone which are the closest cities. This is a tourist region so you have restaurants, wine bars, museums, shops, cinema, theatre and the occasional nightclub, and if you are an outdoors person there is plenty of cycling through the vineyards, walking routes, and many other sports. I have a car and give you lifts to places when necessary or you can borrow one of my bicycles.

    A normal sized campervan would be fine.

    If they are staying in their camper van, otherwise no as my cat is very territorial!
