We are renovating our beautiful old stone wine grower's house which is set in a private domain surrounded by vineyards and a pine forest.

Our current projects are mainly decorating related (prep, painting and wallpapering), although there are some DIY projects that need completing (i.e. wood treatment, plasterboard in a bathroom, plastering and tiling jobs).

There are also projects in the garden (chopping and stacking wood, pre-Winter clear up, strimming, etc.).

We are open to agreeing a varied programme that suits our helper(s).

Helper accommodation is in a comfortable, well equipped, self-contained gite and perks include WIFI and TV, kitchen fully equipped and use of shared pool and bikes. The gite is rented as holiday accommodation from May to September.

There are 3x daily buses to Carcassonne which is renowned for its world heritage mediaeval city. The lovely surrounding villages are c.3km away and offer full amenities, bars and restaurants, and lots of things to do and see - from 'Dolmen' and beautiful architecture to wine tasting and a leisure complex. Stunning walks and bike rides are right on the doorstep...

We have 17 year old twin boys and our 22 year old son visits us and our 2 dogs and cat often.

6 to 7 hours per day, Sunday off (can be swapped if another day off is preferred).
