Volunteer Chef/Cook (live-in)

We have just opened a volunteer position for a live in chef/cook for this summer!

 

Overview

In order for us to be able to focus on the château restoration projects we have created an opportunity for a live in volunteer chef to look after daily meals during the Spring / Summer period when our family and friends come to assist. The position will commence mid April throughout the summer months.

 

What we provide

You will live in the château with us and all your meals and accommodation here will be covered. The inside is very tired however you will have a comfortable private room. You will share bathroom and kitchen facilities with us and will be able to explore the estate freely.

We have bikes which you can use to explore the forest in front of the château and a swimming pool which you are welcome to use. We also have a grand piano if you enjoy playing the piano!

You will need to be comfortable with animals as our 9 month old puppy is very energetic and will want to be your best friend!

 

Additional information

The château is quite remote so if you are looking to explore the region you will need a car. The nearest train station is Poitiers which is about 1 1/2 hour train ride to Paris and 40 minutes from the château by car.  The WiFi connection is mostly strong however can be a little weak in the evenings.

 

Please note:

The château is currently undergoing a significant restoration. Sections of the château are covered in scaffolding and the site is busy with workers coming and going.

 

Sounds like you?
