**SKIING, WALKING & BIKING CHALET IN LES ARCS, FRENCH ALPS** Want to bike or hike in France this autumn, or looking for a ski job and need accommodation while you search? We're looking for friendly people to help us prepare our chalets for the winter season. 2 WEEK STAYS OR LONGER ONLY - FROM OCTOBER 2017 TO MID-DECEMBER 2017.


We run two lovely mountain chalets in a beautiful part of the Alps near Bourg Saint Maurice and the mountain resort of Paradiski (Les Arcs + La Plagne). We need help this autumn with gardening, landscaping, basic DIY and carpentry, deep cleaning, painting, sewing and dog sitting. In return we'll provide you with food and accommodation. We provide the basic ingredients, but you make your own meals. We only eat meat once a week max, so if you're a body builder or believe meat is an essential part of your diet, ours is not the right place to stay.

Ideally you'd be a couple or friends, but lone travellers will be considered with the right experience. We are looking for mature, enthusiastic, hard working and friendly helpers for 2 week stays or longer through from Oct until the beginning of the winter season (20 Dec 2017).

You will need to be fit, hard working, friendly, easy going and willing to help for up to 30 hours a week in exchange for board and lodgings. We don't accept families or people under 18.

Les Arcs is a large mountain resort with excellent hiking and mountain biking trails (lifts open July-Aug only in summer). If you love the mountains and summer sports, there is lots to do in your spare time, if not, then you will find it too quiet.

The chalet is just 5 minutes walk from the village shop and bar. It's a small rural village and is very quiet. Don't expect any nightlife! The main town, Bourg Saint Maurice, is 7km from the house along the riverside cycle path, and there is also a train station in Landry if you want to travel further afield.

If you arrive by train, we can pick you up from the station either in Aime, Bourg Saint Maurice or Landry ( for timetables).

Please send us a photo if your profile does not have one. It would also be a great help if you could tell us a bit about yourself, e.g where you are from, your skills and interests, any relevant experience, languages etc, and any special food requirements.

The photos below should give you an idea of the beautiful spot we are in. They include photos of the chalet from outside, a guest room, the village of Landry and its church, and our local ski resort of Paradiski (Les Arcs & La Plagne).
