He would appreciate if we were contacted by someone really reliable who could stay at least 2 weeks.Winter is coming soon and there are a lot of different tasks to do.
We live in an old priory with foundations dating back to the XIIth century in the middle of the countryside. Village 2 kms away and small town (Falaise, 10000 inhabitants) 6 kms away.
We can provide a bike. There are a small lake and a wood quite near for nature lovers.

We need help to maintain the property. We have an organic garden and a heated swimming pool where you can swimm everyday if you like in Summer.

There is always some maintenance work to be done : housework,painting, weeding, gardening, trimming hedges and trees.

Accommodation is provided in the main building with wifi, separate room and separate shower. 3 meals a day.(light lunch)We ask for 25 hours work a week in exchange for your food and accommodation. We also ask that you help generally with the preparing and clearing up at mealtimes, as you would in a family as well as keeping your room clean and tidy.

Work : 4 to 5 hours a day expected, Sunday off.Usually 3 hours in the morning and some time too in the afternoon, very much depending on the weather.

We have been married for over 35 years. I teach English, my husband is a newly retired estate agent, with health problems. We love meeting new people.
We have raised three children now 27,24 and 20;2 of them are involved in art, the eldest one is an economist, currently working in London.

French and English spoken. Plenty of help provided for learners of French. Any nationality welcome, non-smoker preferably.

On the photographs, you can see last summer's helpers at work.
