This year we are looking for help with the construction of a terrace/patio and with woodland maintenance. Accommodation will be in a very comfortable caravan, with meals eaten together in the farmhouse.

We are a British couple who have lived in the north of Pays de la Loire for 9 years, trying to be as self-sufficient as possible (given the limitations of the size of our small holding - >2 ha- and our advancing years - 60's!!). We have 2 very large vegetable plots, a large poly-tunnel, chickens, as well as 3 dogs and 2 yard cats. English is spoken all the time, and we have adequate French for conversation and everyday circumstances. We are happy to help improve your English.

Our smallholding is surrounded by countryside, both fields and forest (the nearest neighbour is 600m away). The property is bounded by a small stream. The nearest shop, boulangerie and hotel/restaurant are 7km away. We are equidistant (13 km) from Bauge, La Fleche and Le Lude, all of which have farmers markets.

We are looking for help generally with all the chores, as well as managing our small woodland - 0.5 ha. We ask for around 20 hours per week, with the rest of the time at your disposal.

We cannot accommodate children or pets.

There is always plenty of good home grown food, with most of the meals taken together. We have no problem with smokers, so long as they smoke outside.

If you enjoy peace and quiet, the countryside and seclusion you will be happy here. There will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy the surrounding area and visit all the various local tourist attractions.
