We are Geoff & Jane and we have a small house situated close to Lac de Chambon and surrounded by beautiful farmland. The house is an old stone fermette and, although an on-going project, is comfortable and charming.

We offer peace & tranquility, a warm welcome, a double (or twin) clean, comfortable bedroom with own shower room, 3 meals per day, and the chance to experience all that our beautiful part of France has in abundance in return for your assistance with our projects in the house and garden.

Vegetarian meals are available if preferred.

Current projects include plasterboarding of small kitchen ceiling and on-going creation of loft bedroom (window is in but that's about all!) Some removing of existing boarding to rafters, plasterboarding and possibly plumbing for an ensuite. Several smaller 'finishing-off' jobs and painting. Always general work to be done in the garden (mainly grasscutting) but would like to develop vegetable plot.

Required: General DIY and grasscutting skills an asset but more importantly enthusiam, energy and a readiness to 'muck in'.

Any nationality welcome but only English (and a very little French) spoken.

Local area has a wealth of wild life, history and culture. Beaches and a variety of water sports are available at nearby Lac de Chambon. Own transport is an advantage but we do have an assortment of push bikes available if needed. Pick-up from train station or airport could be arranged if necessary.

We are new to Helpx but feel really excited to be trying something different. We would love to hear from you.
