  • Description


    We are Sundara and David, a retired but still very active Scottish couple. Our only home is a large mansion house ('maison de maître') overlooking the Canal du Midi in the Languedoc region. It has been used for various purposes including jazz soirees, as we are involved in the jazz world, Sundara as a singer & David on electric bass. We have a large Mediterranean garden and a 12.5 m pool.

    Our helpers eat with us and enjoy wonderful food, mostly organic, little red meat. Lots of fish and seafood.. So it is also useful if you are reasonably competent cook(s) and are generally practical. We are now particularly interested in hosting a slghtly older woman (say, 40-plus) who can help Sundara in the garden.

    We ask only for 4 hours work a day, for 5 days a week (Saturday and Sunday off)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We love to hear about how life is lived in other European countries and on other continents. But for us, having workawayers from the UK is a lower priority because, being British ourselves, it is of less cultural interest. We hope that you will learn something from us, not least through the lively discussions we like to engage in over meals about world affairs and what is happening in your home country.

  • Aide


    We ask for an input of 20 hours a week, ranging from painting to gardening and cleaning (including the pool). In addition to this we would expect you to share cooking and meal preparation. You do need to be practical, but computing skills are not needed. We would like you to stay for a week initially, with longer stays by arrangement.

    We generally prefer couples, as we live in a small village with limited entertainment. But a single slightly older woman to help Sundara in the garden would also be welcome, for a possible long-term stay. Your work will range from painting to gardening, cleaning (including the pool), and sharing the cooking. You do need to be practical, but computing skills are not needed.
