Looking for help from mid July 2013 onwards.
Our property is in the Vienne, 55 kms north of Poitiers.
We are an English family and have 2 children, chickens and rabbits and alot of work to do!

During the next couple of months we are looking for helpers with masonary/bricklaying experience to rebuild a garden wall in limestone and also someone with a head for heights to help repaint the outside of the house.

We also need help with a variety of work including renovation of our property inside and out. Plastering,painting,rebuilding stone walls and a new stone staircase, there is always plenty of weeding to do in the rose and vegetable gardens,fields and hedges to maintain, housework, daily chores, looking after the animals etc, etc.
If you have experience with a chainsaw we will need you from October onwards. We have an acre of woodland that needs coppicing so tree felling, logging and stacking of wood in abundance!
There's plenty of choice depending on your preferance and skills!
You should be fit, motivated and enthusiastic.
We work hard but you will also have plenty of time to relax and explore.

We can collect you from our nearest airports, or train stations at Poitiers, Chinon or Châtellerault.
Helpers would live as part of the family, with use of the internet, push bikes and small swimming pool during the summer.
You are asked to work 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week, plus help with meals and clearing way after.

La Roche Rigault is at the end of a 40km dedicated cycle way ,there are no amenities in this village so you need to be happy with a rural location but the town of Loudun 10kms away has good facilities.
The area is very peaceful and calm, great for cycling, walking,and relaxing!
