Help in exchange for food and accommodation in the beautiful South of France
Volunteer exchange in France – Just arriving in Arles for a few months, in a house that needs some renovations – not heavy works anymore but with a lot of details to fix. And in the garden too.
I have 4 bedrooms, so enough place to host a single or a couple. The place is in town, very near the historical center of Arles, beautiful as much as the Alpilles or the beach not far at all.
My project here is to build a house welcoming for artists of every kind, sometimes just for recharging energy and ideas, some time for working a project…
