    Hellooo workaway family ! We are living in a beautiful domain of 7 hectares in south of France, ideally located in the Nature near to Nimes and Montpellier, with 2 hectares of vineyard and 5 hectares of fields for animals. We are lucky to live surrounded by a lot of animals that we love : donkeys, dogs, horses, cats, chicken.
    As the property is very big, we are always doing stuffs outside : gardening, feeding the animals and taking care of them, painting...

    The property is really beautiful : it is the castle of the village surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and nature where you can do walks, biking, and visiting the area as it is really touristic with a lot of beautiful villages to see (Sauve, Uzès, Sommieres, Avignon..), and beautiful places in Nature (Ardeche Gorges, Waterfalls, Cevennes National Parc, Camargues, beaches in Montpellier...). Our property is located at the beginning of a lots of walks in mountains, and biking areas. We are hosting a lots of clients in our guest houses during summer, and they love the area as they have thousands of things to do and discover, from stunning places to stunning places.

    We love nature and try to respect it as much as we can, and we have an ecological view in our life. We have a potager (garden) where we grow our vegetables, and we do have a lots of fruits trees, and the vineyard.

    We were living here with my boyfriend to take care of the animals, and the domains (gardening, taking of the vineyard, and fixing stuffs) aside of our jobs. My mother is a 70's years old person, former doctor in medicine, who have a lots of knowledge in science and medicine (she keeps in giving conferences). That's the main reason why we are seeking for help, because the domain is really big and it's too hard for herself to take care of the animals, gardenning and taking care of the property. My sister is a doctor at the hospital in Nimes, and she does live there but comes back in the family house when she does have free time as it is a real paradise to live here. Her boyfriend is a nurse, and they are both working at the hospital (they are 30's). So when we are all at the house we are 5.

    As we had to leave to Paris, we are looking for workaway helpers to help my mother with all the daily tasks we do (around 3 hours a day in exchange of accommodation, with two days off). You will be 2 or 3 workaway helpers at the same time and the idea is to not have the same days off at the same time for the animals. The main tasks are the following :
    - Taking care of the animals: feeding the animals (4 donkeys, 1 horse, 2 big dogs (one pyrenean mountain, one white swiss shepherd), 8 chickens) and take the dogs for a walk in the property in the morning (all that takes an hour approximately between 8.30 and 9.30am). During the days, there are 2 to 3 other walks to do for the dogs. And at the end of the day one last walk and closing doors for the chickens. All that takes about 2hours daily.
    - Despite of that, there are always gardening things to do (cut the grass, the trees, taking care of the garden and the vineyard...), fixing stuffs outside and inside the house, paintings etc...

    The main important thing for us is to find people who really like nature and are not afraid of big dogs. One of them, the bigger one, is a bit complicated to manage because he is anxious in front of new people and dogs, so you'll need strenght and patience to handle him.

    As we are in the middle of nature, it is better to have your own car to visit around, otherwise, my mother will be able to bring you around on her free time. You will have a bike at your disposal, and a regular bus that you can catch goes to Nimes often during the day.

    If you seek a place to relax, calm and in a beautiful, far from the city and all the noises, this place is a paradise !
