I am looking for a couple of helpers who are passionate about nature and animals who could help me this Autumn at le Peyrail. I would really like to tidy the terraces and sort out the horse field and the paddock.

There will also be some general cleaning in the house as guests come and go.

Autumn is a beautiful time of year especially here in SW France it is still warm enough to eat out on the terraces and the horses love the cooler weather.

I would love to get some planting done around the house and even a little vegetable plot prepared for next spring.

Our house was originally three 19th century vine workers cottages, although some of the original walls are much older. It has been beautifully converted into one house set into the hillside with lots of terraces and a two acre garden which slopes down through orchards to a tiny stream flanked by a bamboo forest.

When we moved here two years ago, all our animals came with us, so there is always work to be done in and around the stables. We have three horses, a pig called Oliver, 18 very friendly white doves, three dogs, two cats and fish.

I would love to ride out with someone who is experienced. My horses love going out on long hacks. It is a lovely way to explore the surrounding countryside.

I love playing music, cooking and entertaining, and often have to cook for guests as Le Peyrail is a chambre/table d'hotes so any culinary input would be fab.

I am an Artist/picture restorer and run Art workshops throughout the Summer and Autumn ,if you are artistic and would like to help out with some of my projects it would be great.
you will have a double bedroom with a bathroom with Jacuzzi Bath.
If you are interested in staying at Le Peyrail please let me know your work preferences/skills and we can discuss things by e-mail or phone.If you would like to know more about us visit my Facebook page - Jo Gibbs, Wintonfineart or Belle Boheme- you should find me.
I speak french and a smattering of Spanish, so I never see language as a barrier.
