  • Description

    Description

    We are an English couple in Nimes, in the departement of Gard. The property has a very spacious garden yet is very close to the bustling town centre (Pop of Nimes is 150,000) Nimes is a Roman town and there are things to do all year round.. It’s about 35 min from the sea, and near to Avignon, Arles, Uzes and many other beautiful historic towns and villages. The property is comfortable and you will be well fed. The accommodation is a separate, fully-equipped appartment with TV and wifi and loads of books, so you can be independent if you prefer.
    We have reversible air con for winter and summer.
    Sue is a good cook (we are not vegetarian) and an experienced teacher of French and English . Chris still works in UK but comes and goes to Nimes!

    Currently we are working on improving our garden, repairing stone walls, which you need strength for. We have had our pool overhauled and need to treat the wooden deck, as well as the wooden shutters. There’s some indoor painting too.

    We are happy to take couples (king size, single bed + travel cot) and we have a no smoking rule indoors.
    25 hrs of jobs a week, but you are free to decide when/how you do the jobs. You might prefer to work solidly for 4 days and then go out and about for a long weekend. We will do our best to help you see the sights.

    We have a lovely place and as you can see from our feedback, we love hosting people. If you have skills or experience which can help us, we would love to hear from you

    Workaway is a wonderful set-up for active people. We have been lucky to meet and become friends with some amazing people. We always look forward to meeting new travellers who can help us, and whom we can help in return.

    You can walk into town from the house. Nimes has a vibrant atmosphere with bars and restaurants.
    Visiting local historical and beauty spots: Uzes, Pont du Gard, Aigues Mortes, Arles, Uzes, Avignon and the Med are all within reach. There are very good transport links and I am happy to help you get to where you want to go. It’s a great area for walking and biking (we have a bike you can use)
