    My name is Odile, I am a sculptor living and working in a magnificent medieval castle in the beautiful French garrigue of Provence at the intersection of four regions, Gard, Drome, Ardèche and Vaucluse.
    In addition to my personal work I rent the castle for marriages. I need help for the maintenance of the park and the house, as well for my sculptures.

    The castle is on a rural area, located in a historical and scenic village surrounded by Côtes du Rhône vineyards.

    Theres a restaurant in the village, a bakery, a little market on saturdays. We are not too far from the famous Pont du Gard, near Uzès, lovely medieval town with fabulous markets and many bars and restaurants, not too far from Nimes, Avignon, Vaison la Romaine, Orange.

    There are many cultural and sporting activities available in the area.

    There are plenty of easy trails around the village with spectacular views over the valley, castle ruins and vineyards to visit. With a car it is possible to go explore the cultural heritage of historical cities like Avignon, Nîmes and Orange. And for more adrenaline, jump on canoeing and kayaking trips through the famous Ardèche gorges!

    I am a busy person with many different ongoing projects but easygoing and welcoming as well. I speak French, Spanish, English and a bit of Italian if that can help.
    I am surrounded with artists who live in this region, J love music and I am part of a choir.
    Around this place, (in the Gard, Ardèche, Vaucluse and Drôme), there is an architectural heritage impressing that I can make you know as well as a beautiful countryside.
    In my workshop you can learn to weld, for instance.
