    I moved into my house a year ago with my dog Poppy. Im a social person and love meeting people, I used to do a lot of backpacking and I hope to take it up again once my house is ready to rent out whilst I’m away.
    I work as a craniosacral therapist and love travel and the outdoors. I’d love to share the house with you in exchange for either help (morale support) sorting out my stuff ...i need to go through chuck, sell or place my belongings, help creating a garden and also help with IT. It depends on what you’re good at and like doing. I also have odd diy jobs that need finishing. I can cook vegetarian food but I do like to eat meat too. I am English but have lived in France for 28 years. I have had various careers from working in the theatre to hostessing on sailing boats and more recently welcoming tourists who stayed in my holiday accommodation. I love meeting new people as does Poppy.
    I practice QiGong and would like to create a habit of meditating daily and would welcome anyone wanting to join me.
    I have a bike at your disposal so you can get into town easily or go for a spin along the canal du midi.

    Workaways will enjoy visiting the iconic fortified city of Carcassonne and also the 'new' town with its market, cafes and shops. The Canal du midi is close to the house and a bike is at your disposition. Vineyards are nearby and there is fabulous countryside. I love taking off to the beach and try and get there at least once a fortnight and you are welcome to come with me. Narbonne,Montpellier and Toulouse are accessible by train ride and the station is a 20 minute walk from the house.
    I love travelling and have back packed a lot in the past and enjoy meeting new people. Hopefully we will enjoy each other’s company. I have sailed the Atlantic, worked on a cattle station in Australia , worked in the theatre, in outdoor pursuits for underprivileged kids, gave guided tours of battlefield of agincourt.
    I have a newish bicycle you can use to explore.

    At some point I need to paint shutters and do and odds and ends to finish the house. I would welcome any keen gardeners. I am rubbish at IT so help with general housekeeping on my computer would be good.

    I have a fast connection wifi and you would have your own room. The bed is a sofa bed so if you want to fold it away in day time it ncould become your study too if you needed privacy.
