We live in a late 18th century chateau which we are in the process of renovating.

We are looking for help between now and the end of October on various jobs in the grounds of our Chateau. Mainly involves clearing and chopping up fallen timber, clearing over grown areas of weed and low shrubs. Some weeding of beds and taking down Virginia creeper. There is some painting work to be done as well. Plastering skills are a plus.

If you are up for this and other heavy maintenance work we have a self-catering gite for your sole use adjacent to the Chateau but we will provide the food for you to cook as you wish. We will also invite you to join us for a meal from time to time. There is internet and French TV in the gite. The kitchen is fully equipped including dish washer, washing machine and fridge/freezer. We speak both English and French.

We are located in the Aude valley of Languedoc in an area famous for the Cathar crusade. We are just off the Autoroute Des Deux Mers. Toulouse is 50km away and Carcassonne is 30km. La Cite the medeaval walled city and fortified chateau in Carcassonne is a World Heritage site.
