We are Enid and Kevin, a very active couple in our 60s. We are British but have lived here in SW France for 13 years.We have restored an 18th century farmhouse on a hectare of land. We are establishing a permaculture garden and taming the land which has been left idle for many years. We have chickens and two dogs. This is our second property in this village. We sold the last one after 10 years running holiday cottages and had lots of helpxers working with us on that project (no reviews I'm afraid as we have a new e mail so had to create a new account.) We need someone to help with cutting bamboo, fencing in the veg plot and the chicken area, building compost bins and general garden work. You would work 4/5 hours per day for 5 days and then have 2 days off. Work is mainly mornings but some time in the afternoon too - we like to take a long lunch (we're a bit French that way!)! You would have indoor accommodation - we have a twin room or a double room and you would have your own bathroom. We have good wifi a swimming pool and Kevin is an excellent cook - you would eat well. Maximum stay 2 weeks. We are situated an hour inland from Bordeaux in the beautiful Lot et Garonne region of SW France and can collect from Marmande train station or Bergerac airport.
