We are a french-english couple, renovating a house in the middle of the country side in "le gers", southwest france. We need help moving and tidying up an area which is covered by building rubble and overgrown by vegetation. So lots of shoveling and wheelbarrow work. We were thinking of a five hour day (with a long lunch - it is too hot to work in the afternoon before about three) for five days of the week.
We are 3kms from the village (which has a large swimming pool) and 15 from the nearest town, so it is quite isolated and quiet. However, there are many events around here in the summer - concerts,theatre, festivals, and night markets for instance, which we can, on occasions, take people to.
We have a double room which is only partially renovated but quite comfortable, otherwise there is plenty of room for a tent. Plumbing is a bit primitive - toilet is ok but the shower will probably still be outside (but private) and cold - but very refreshing in summer.
We can cater for vegetarians but this area is famed for its cuisine based around the duck!
This would suit people who would like a peaceful week or two in the French countryside.
