We are a retired couple who have lived in France for over 10 years and we live in a small village in rural South West France between Poitiers and Niort. As we are not as able to do some of the work as easily as we used to, we could do with help with a couple of projects over the next couple of years. We are an amenable and very relaxed couple who have no prejudices and are slightly left of centre in our views whilst respecting everyone's right to have a viewpoint.
This autumn (2015) we could do with help in general garden maintenance ie cutting trees, trimming hedges etc. Preparing our veg plots for next year and a couple of small projects such as rainwater gathering. (involves a bit of pipework). Next year we would like to finish our garage and build a verandah money permitting.
We enjoy gardening/growing veg/and generally relaxing with a glass of wine or beer. we are originally from the North West of England and so we like plain, nourishing food and we are pretty plain spoken to boot. Our House is a detached sous sol and we have two bedrooms so any helpers would be living with us. We have computers and broadband Internet as well as wifi. We also have UK tv.
The accommodation for any helpers is one bedroom with a double bed in it. there is no problem with people bring their own accommodation such as a tent. helpers would need a car or at the very least a valid driving licence. We can pick people up from airports so long as they are within a reasonable distance.
Although we ourselves are not smokers we do not object to smoking so long as it is outside the house. Put it simply we are very friendly but do not suffer fools gladly or people who take the mick. And, finally, don't ever ask us for money as we haven't got any.:)
I forgot to mention that we have a Jack Russell dog who is very friendly.
