My name is Eryk, I'm an open minded French man in love with ARLES and the surrounding villages and naturals parks( Camargue & Alpilles)
It's now finished but myself & Nathalie, a friend of mine have a new project : "OPENING A COMMUNITY & CULTURAL CAFE" in the same aerea. CONSTRUCTION is now done and we will open once finished '...
As a handy man, you have to be happy fixing things (a lot) and once done manage with us in order to see if the place can be open before you go (do you believe in miracle?)
Language Skill : Official language is FRENCH and as a volunteer you'll NEED IT a minimum to be able to communicate with us. I am fluent in English and Spanish and I am able to understand Italian too (Italian pianist/handyman/woman exclusively speaking Italian welcome).
We are expecting 5 hours/day help with a total of 20 to 25 hours/week maxi but It can be less one week and more the next one, depending of the work.You can decided your days off depending of visitors.
AWAY (from help)....and relax.....
Arles is a nice small city in south France, full of history and culture, photography capital (national school and festivals) and the city where Van Gogh stayed for 2 years and painted 200 of his best paintings. Arles is also on the way to Santiago and Rome so I host pilgrims at home. We live in "la roquette" which is a very nice place close to the river Rhône in the city centre. When you have your free time you can use our bicycles /Tandem and go and explore yourself in the CAMARGUE Nature park or in the ALPILLES. Between sea & mountains, you'll enjoy the nature around!
Cooking... I love it. I cook but I am not vegetarian (but mostly eat vegetables). I eat everything and try to buy good produce from the 2 weekly markets and I drink moderately. I provide basic and mostly organic & local food and beverage (wine, beer, whisky, AuberGIN tonic, champagne (sometimes) but if you're a sugar friend's (like soda or coca cola you'll have to buy it with your own money, sorry dear!).
I'm not a smoker but no problem for smoking outside and I smoke sometime a special cigarette.
I have an open mind and can adapt myself to live with different honest people.
I'll share some of the lunches and diners with you and provide food and beverage in a coherent limit.
You will be treated like a member of the family and we'll generally spend a lot of time all together as a family or group of close friends but you can definitely have your own time if you prefer.
A room to share with the other assistant if you're two but you'll probably have your own room if you come alone!
Ready to answer to any other question you might have. We can have our first meeting by Whatsapp if you're still interested and if we have space for the time you plan to stay.
Vipassana and yoga practicers, pilgrims and quiet (funny) people very welcome at the moment...
Internet or mobile phone fanatics are not very welcome ( we share the lunch and diner without mobile in hands or on the table).
Warm regards from Arles.
Looking forward to meeting you, be happy.
Réception des motivations......enthusiastic interest now
