Anyone out there heading for South West France in Spring and Summer? We are an English family living on a beautiful 30 acre domain of woodland, pasture and wild flower meadows about half an hour South of Carcassonne and just 5 minutes from the bustling medieval market town of Mirepoix.

We are looking for two friends or a couple to come and help us get the place ready for our 2017 summer season. We'd need you to arrive at the end of March and stay until early or mid-May. The work is really varied and most of it is outside. There's the pool to clean and summer kitchen and terrace to organise and everything will need a bit of attention after the winter months. There will be a bit of painting to do, jet washing terraces, some gardening work, grass cutting and weeding, erecting the tipi, opening up the swimming pool etc. It would obviously be a good match if you are fairly practical.

We are also looking for some very special girls (2 friends or a couple) who fancy spending a minimum of four weeks here to help us with our 2017 summer season which runs from 6th May to the end of September. If you could start the season with us and stay until late June that would be just perfect! You’ll need to be fairly practical, socially skilled, with a great sense of humour and be comfortable interacting with children of all ages and confident about orgainising some fun activities for the kids. Previous experience working with young children would be a real bonus.We can offer you some great, self - contained accommodation plus all your weekly groceries / meals taken care of. In return we would ask both of you to put in 24 hours each per week helping us to keep the place running smoothly, providing back up for our fabulous cleaning team and ensuring that all the families who holiday here have a wonderful stay.

One of you will need to have a valid driving licence (stick, not automatic) and if our insurers are happy with your documents then we’ll let you borrow the Landrover from time to time so that you can explore the area. If you have experience with young children then there’s plenty of opportunity for some babysitting work.

If you fancy the gig then do get in touch. Montengrand is a fabulous, fun place and we’ll do our best to be the perfect hosts!
