**LOOKING FOR HELPERS FROM MID APRIL FOR
FOUR WEEKS AND SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER**


We are a retired non smoking, English couple living in Poitou Charentes, SW France, we are situated in the department of Vienne and our property lies on the banks of the River Vienne. We live in a three bedroomed pavillion with 2 acres cultivated garden and the rest is an uncultivated field. We have five dogs, all friendly and love people so you must be prepared for some wet sloppy greetings (from the dogs that is). My 92 going on 62 year old mother lives with us and is very able bodied and loves to help around the house and garden. Ideally we would like someone here for April/May 2014.

We would like a single person or couple to come and help us in the garden and land. General gardening, tending veggie plots and weeding, digging, planting and mowing (we have two ride on mowers), maintenance of fencing and also we need some clearing done in our overgrown field. We would welcome you as part of our family and perhaps, if you cook, you can share some of your recipes with us.

We have a heated swimming pool that is opened in the summer months and you would be free to use it whenever you like. There would probably be a car available for your use. All board and lodging provided for helper/s in exchange for your help. Local activities include, kayaking, cycling, walking and golf. Main city of Poitiers is 30 mins drive away and Montmorillon, a beautiful medieval city, is 20 minutes drive. The nearest airports are Poitiers and Limoges. We are 4.5 - 5 hours drive from the ports of Caen and le Harvre
