Stay a month or longer— Looking for a mature, responsible couple on an Historic Estate in Brittany, France. April 2017 through September 2017!

This coming Spring, Summer, Fall 2017, we will be needing help preparing for Holiday Home-stays and educational workshops, maintaining the lovely grounds and buildings to stay in tip top shape!

We are an American couple who are blessed to own a beautiful Estate on 181 acres in Brittany,France.(to find out more about us and our place google Chateau Le Mur) We are looking for gardening and maintenance (25 hours work/week per person) in exchange for a lovely furnished, fully renovated apartment (utilities and wifi included) in our Medieval Manoir (circa 13-15 centuries!).

These are the types of tasks we need help with: Need regular cleaning and maintenance of Chateau, Manoir, Medieval Assembly room and Medieval kitchen. Need general cleaning, laundry, ironing, organizing, to prepare for vacation home-stay guests and greeting of guests. Keep forest paths clear of fallen tree debris; Mow lawn (we have a ride-able lawn mower) and trim hedges with electric trimmer; Plant flowers and vegetables; Weeding; Cut down trees and chop wood as needed (we have electric and gas powered saws); Rake driveway when needed; Fertilize fruit trees; Grooming the miniature pony and taking her for walks, hand feeding our 3 miniature sheep to keep them tame! Experience in property and home maintenance a big BIG plus!

In your off time feel free to enjoy the majestic Brittany coast and sandy beaches, walled Medieval cities such as St.Malo, Vannes, Dinan, Rennes, and explore the nearby villages of Rochefort en Terre, Josselin, Malestroit, and La Gacilly. Explore the wonders of Carnac's 'Standing Stones', and visit one of the most famous landmarks in France, Mont St. Michel.

If you think you would enjoy visiting and working in one of the most beautiful settings in France, please get back to us soon!

Thanks, Ernie and Terry

P.S. We are looking for mature married couples who own a home or have owned a home in the past. Please be aware that you MUST, ABSOLUTELY, 100% rent/bring your own car/motorbike while you are here. If you are coming from outside France, it is often much cheaper to rent a vehicle long term from your home country than within France.
