We are a retired couple who live in Normandie between St Lo and Bayeux.
We are now booked for the present time, thank you for all your interested.
We bought our barn 18 years ago and have been restoring it since, it is now comfortable warm and spacious with a friendly feel when you walk through the front door. but as with all old houses there is always something to do.
We have 5 cats (spoilt) 1 dog (Old) and 6 goats(no milking required just a piece of bread or two or three) we have bought our camper and would like to use it but all the animals won't fit! So we would like to go away for a few days at a time, couldn't go longer we miss our home and the animals!
Juliet loves walking and we are in a local walking group and she often goes out to find new routes for the Monday walks. We are involved in the local commune and tend to have more french friends than English so language is improving.

We are John and Patricia, a Dutch couple, who live in Normandy. We speak Dutch and English( and understand German) but from our French you get tears in your eyes.....
So for people who want to improve their French this is probably not the best place to come.....Or you take a 5 minute walk to the local village where ALL people speak French and are very friendly. There are some bars but no night entertainment.
But if you are looking for a beautiful green quiet part of France, this is your place.

Physically and mentally fit people wanted who like to ( help us) maintain a large exciting domain. Come and be part of our family, when we are busy doing our day to day duties. You don't live in our house but have a separate house for yourself, so lots of privacy for you and also for us ;-)
Due to some bad experiences with helpers who saw our place as a cheap resort we now only take helpers with former experience and references.
We like to welcome people who understand the concept of... more inside
