Hi

We live in the south of France in the beautiful Minervois wine region. Narbonne is our nearest large town and the medieval splendour of Carcassonne is just 40 minutes away. We have easy access to Spain - 1 hour by road and ski resorts in the Pyrenees 2 hours. And huge clean and sandy mediterranean beaches are 30 minutes away.

We are looking for help for Spring 2017 (March & April) with the renovation of our home which is an old tile factory and taming the land that surrounds it! There is a possibility that we could take help for October 2015.

Accommodation is in a self contained cottage next door to our home. Bedding and towels are provided. Breakfast and dinner will be provided everyday and lunch will be provided on the days that you work. We would advise that you have your own transport as we do live in a rural area and cannot provide a car for you.

Work: 5 hours a day saturday & sunday off. If you would prefer to work up your hours in 1 day etc., to obtain more full days off we would be happy to accommodate that arrangement. We are looking for 25 hours work a week.
Land clearing and a little forestry.
Building, experience with roofing.
Decorating.

We are a British family - Chris and I (Helen) moved here in 2003 and our son, Fabio, arrived a year later. We are very much intergrated in the french way of life.

Languages: Between us we speak English, French, Italian and a little Spanish.

We would love to introduce people to the beautiful and historic area that we live in and to help with language improvement in English and French
