Hello! We are looking for strong and energetic helpers [ideally aged over 22 with some experience of work]to help with an active and varied work schedule from NOW onwards and throughout the winter. We need to do exterior work preparing composts and clearing the leaves and undergrowth and chopping wood for winter and clearing out our pond for the water recycling. Also some painting and some cleaning depending on timing. Thank you!

Our Chateau was built in the 11th century and is set amongst 20 hectares of sun-flowered fields, woods and parkland, with organic fruit gardens and a solar-heated swimming pool. The Chateau is rich with the history of Viscounts, Cathars and the Knights of the Templar. It fell into neglect following an attack by the Catholics during the 16th century Wars of Religion.

We bought it 9 years ago, to develop it using traditional building, green living and sustainable techniques.

As we are fun-loving and people oriented, we are developing the Chateau's social potential for holidays, weddings, hospitality & cultural events.

We ask you to provide 25 hours assistance a week and help with the [vegetarian with fish & cheese] cooking schedule. In exchange we provide board and lodgings in this unique location, with the opportunity to explore the area and local bars & festivals in one of the most friendly, welcoming and beautiful parts of rural France.

If this sounds like your sort of thing - we look forward to hearing from you! Travel is easy from Toulouse with a regular SNCF train from Toulouse to Vielmur sur Agout where we will meet you.

A bientot!
Alison, Grant and Paul
