    Descripción

    My name is Mick, I’m 50, & I have just bought what will be a beautiful house in Magalas, a typical circulade style village, not far from Beziers, France. This area benefits from over 300 days of sunshine per year, which helps to make it one of the best wine growing regions in the World.

    I am looking to turn an 18 metre squared area on the ground floor of my house into a small self contained studio; I need to turn a small room on the 1st floor into an en-suite bathroom; & on the 2nd floor, I have a double height attic of 44 square metres that I want to convert into my self contained living quarters, as well as a sun terrace above. I will also be painting, & chiselling off plaster to reveal the original stonework, some of which dates back to the 12th century

    You will be living in a house, parts of which date back to the 12th century, in a historic circulade village, in the heart of wine country, & bus ride from the beach. You will help restore a period property, hopefully learn some new skills, & almost certainly make some new friends along the way

    Alojamiento

    On the 1st floor of the house, there is a bedroom with a double bed, & one with 4 single beds, bunk bed style. There is also a sofa bed in the living room; and it would be very easy to install a single bed in the future 1 bed studio.

    I’m happy to cook for volunteers, but food will be simple home cooking. Guests are welcome to cook their own food if they wish, & make full use of the kitchen facilities

    Magalas is a fairly lively village, with beautiful surrounding countryside & vineyards, perfect for walking or cycling. There is an Epicerie, 2 bar/restaurants, and a mini market in the village; and there are 2 supermarkets 15 minutes’ walk away. If that’s not enough, the village has a train station, & a bus service between the village & nearby Beziers. The beach is a 20-25 minute drive away, or is accessible by public transport.
    I have been living in the house since Christmas Day, so work is now in progress.
