We live in the Cévennes, an old isolated mountain range in the south of France. We have a wonderful view of the mountains from our farm. We've just finished redoing the shale stone roof on the house, which was first built in the 12th century (with the help of a helpexer) and need lots of help continuing to renovate the house in a traditional manner. We're 10 km from the nearest village (but a 20 minute drive). We need helpers who are handy with tools -- carpenters, masons, woodcutters, gardeners, kitchen helpers, cooks, etc. The place is rustic (outdoor shower, outdoor toilets) but good beds and good food inside,running water and electricity. Couples welcome! We would need 4 or 5 hours of work/day in exchange for room and board. Ice cold stream to cool off in a 20 minute walk away. People who like the great outdoors will love it here. We also like to play cards, music, have fun! We're French/English bilingual + Spanish and Italian (Jacques only!)
