Les Courmettes: Groundskeeper Assistant

Where?

Domaine des Courmettes is located in the mountains northwest of Nice, in France.

Our centre is located at 850 meters high and the oldest parts appear to date from the 18th century. Currently we are looking for a handy worker that is able to help out the housekeeping team and groundkeeper with different maintenance tasks.
