I need companion helper as I have Multiple Sclerosis. I live in a lovely Charentaise house from which I offer bed and breakfast. I have been a widow for 19 months and am finding it hard to run this house on my own. I would like someone who can drive an automatic English car so that I can go out for the day as I am finding it difficult to drive due to my disability. I am waiting for hand controls to be installed in my car. I need someone who can push me in a wheelchair sometimes, someone to do shopping with, help in the garden, for example weeding, watering plants, general clearance, help in the house such as simple painting of woodwork and general maintenance.

This is an idyllic grass- and woodland farm which operates as a private charity and rescue for horses. Usually there are about 12 equine residents of different breeds and ages, most of them with a rather heavy past. They live in small groups - respecting friendships and aversions. They are out in the day and stabled at night. Some of them are retired, some can be ridden lightly. According to their abilities they do dressage, riding out and/or work at liberty. Every horse gets daily special food and special attention, including grooming and teaching tricks. They all love human contact. Helpers should happily muck in and out, be very willing to learn and be open to bond with one or several horses. Previous horse- and riding experience is good, but not absolutely neccessary. We also offer Physiotherapy for horses and run a Horse-Helpline (nutrition, training,care etc.) so there are always some activities and an extra pair of hands is appreciated. The farm is very structured and organ... more inside

We are an english family with grown up children, have lived in France for 11 years and breed native Fell ponies that we have lived and worked with for many years, and now breed, we have 13 ponies here and i have 3 which need to be trained to ride and drive this summer, also help in the garden and with the cooking would be good, so we can have lots of time with the ponies. I will need a person who can stay for 4 weeks as the "starter " training for a pony is about this time and it is important to have the same two working trainers so that the pony trusts you.
You must have enthusiaism for working with animals and want to learn about them, but you do not need to have been trained with horses before, as this is helping me to do the training, but if you can ride this is good, and have a keen interest in country life.
TRAINING these ponies as I see it, is time and patience, with a little work every day and enjoying the trust an animal can put in you is a very good worth while feeling. ... more inside

ACCOMMODATION STILL AVAILABLE FOR JUNE AND JULY.

We are a young (mid 50's) retired English couple who through an act of folly (which we still laugh about) own a 25 metre high historic Lime Kiln with several outbuildings. Our plan is to use the kiln as a climbing/abseiling centre in the future.

We have lived here for just over 3 years and still have many ongoing projects both in the garden and in the home.

Located between the Loire Valley and the Dordogne, outside of a small hamlet, nearest shops 5km, within walking distance of local bar (bikes supplied).

We have a large veggie area with raised beds which have produced excellent crops.

Our home is shared with a small dog, who is very friendly. Gillian breeds chickens, so we get to enjoy fresh eggs and meat.

The accommodation on offer is a caravan or tent, and have meals with us. We provide breakfast and 2 home cooked meals a day served with wine/beer.

Wifi available.

This in exchange for help 27 hours a week... more inside
