We're currently looking to cover 23-27th September 2013 . We'll also be looking for long stay people from mid-December 2013 until around the middle to end of April 2014. Please send us a skype contact with your application so we can set up a video conversation.
We're looking for a family or a couple who are fun, responsible and who adore nature, animals and the outdoor life. You'll be responsible for our property, which includes your cottage and our farmhouse and also for feeding our animals (see below). We'll be back and forth, living in our own accommodation next door, so we're looking for friends as well as good neighbours. Knowledge of French is useful but not essential.
We have animals (donkeys, chickens, dog) so you would be in charge of looking after these. From spring onwards, tending the vegetable plot.
The cottage is in the staggeringly beautiful Haut-languedoc region of southern France. A perfect place to go hiking, cycling, hill-walking and river swimming. There are three bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen and a nice living room with a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy. It's the perfect place to relax and get away from it all, to get closer to nature. A brilliant place to write (I've already written one novel here!)
It's remote - The nearest village with a shop is a 2km walk away, the nearest supermarket a 13km bicycle or car ride. It's a special, wild and beautiful place - for a special, wild and interesting couple or family!
