Family home, with ongoing rennovations, animals to look after and a vegetable plot to tend to. Plus any household jobs that need doing.

We have quite a few animals, including a couple of dogs, a few chickens, ducks, and horses, so animal friendly people is a must! You don't need to be particularly horsey as my daughter generally looks after them, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind a helping hand with the mucking out and moving of the muck heap...!

Our plans for this year are mainly painting the inside and outside of the house, quite a bit of gardening, tending the veggie plot, and fencing the field. Maybe building a few horse jumps, wings, painting poles..etc. One rather important thing that must be done this year is repairing the roof of a low barn. It needs somebody who isn't afraid of heights but doesn't need to be someone who is a qualified roofer.

My husband works away so it isn't easy for him to do any rennovating, gardening..etc. so I'm calling all HelpXers that want to maybe learn a new language or just generally come and help out with day to day living in France. We are a very freindly and welcoming family, the dogs love meeting new people and you will be warned not to start throwing the ball on your time off as you won't be allowed to stop!!

We have been advised that everyone should work between 4 and 5 hour day, 5 days a week, although we are very flexible. We are located in a rural area, there is a possibility of day trips on your days off, but if you come in the summer we do have a salt water swimming pool that you are more than welcome to use! You will have your own room in the house, with access to internet, 3 meals a day and we are more than willing to cater for any special dietary needs.

If you are interested in helping us then don't hesitate to send me an email.

Look forward to hearing from you.
