HELP REQUIRED NOW WITH GARDEN WORK - general tidying work.
We have three gites and run a craft business making fishing lines in silk. All this activity is situated around our home.
A pair of willing hands, preferable two pairs, would be very welcome. Previous experience and practical skills are important.
There a number of garden and outdoor maintenance tasks that require your help. Mowing, repairing fences, laying paths, weeding, making friends with the chickens are a few examples.
Some of the work is outdoors, but we also have a poly-tunnel to start produce for the garden early. It provides us and those who stay here with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Work will be arranged according to skills and the weather!
Working hours to be by arrangement and whether the sun is shining, depending on the time of year.
We have had some amazing helpers staying here over a very short period. The exchange of ideas and learning about different cultures have been a wonderful experience. Long may it continue to be such a happy thing for us.
In return we offer:
Comfortable, centrally heated accommodation.
Free internet connection
Heated swimming pool, usually from mid-March to mid-November
Bikes for your use and quiet roads, excellent forest tracks to explore the local area and forests.
Peaceful, open countryside.
We are within 1 k of the village, where there is a café/bar and grocery store.
No smokers – either inside or outside.
We speak English and French

A chance to learn about the Loire Valley with its rich history of wine, cuisine and chateaux.
