We moved to this property just over two years ago. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The neighbouring property has a shepherd living there with a small flock of sheep & a small herd of goats, and the horses that are in the fields for the winter months will soon be taken up to the mountains in the Pyrenees for the summer.

My son (aged 32) is back helping us with a lot of the DIY, but every now and then he returns to where he lives to do other jobs. My daughter (aged 27) lives with her partner nearby and our grand-daughter had her first birthday in March. Both my son and daughter are completely bilingual and I speak French reasonably well ~ my husband still struggles! We are retirement age, but still very active. However, my husband is not a DIY person, but does love the garden. We really could do with some help on all sorts of levels and hope to find somebody who would enjoy being in France for a while.

There's usually some tasks to be done with our newly created veg... more inside

***I'm currently looking for helpers in the garden during September*** I look forward to hearing from helpers who love the French countryside and can put their backs into tidying up the garden in exchange for good accommodation and meals.

The house is in Tarn-et-Garonne in the Midi-Pyrenees, and is rented out in the summer as a holiday home. It's in a beautiful position in a rural hamlet of just a few well-spaced houses round a picturesque common. There are beautiful walks into the gorge near the house, and the garden is a haven for birdwatchers.

There is a fair amount of garden work both to prepare it for the holiday season, and to keep the garden under control, e.g. hedge cutting, root digging, bed clearing. The house sleeps up to 10 so there is comfortable and spacious accommodation for helpers.

Caylus, a few kilometres from the house, is a mediaeval village nestling in the valley of the river Bonnette, a tributary of the Aveyron.

Caylus is in the departement o... more inside

Small farm - having sheep, chickens, geese, rabbits and pygmy goats. The land is woodland and grassland and our aim is to manage the woods and develop more pasture land for the sheep. We also have about 300 grape vines of various types. The house is old and renovation is almost complete - it dating from around 1700. Before we bought the property in 2005 the land was never properly fenced and cared for - but we hope to remedy this within the next few years, but there is a lot of fencing, scrub clearing and tree planting and cutting to do. Butiat is a very small hamlet comprising 6 houses in total - 17 persons, but one house is owned by English people using it as a holiday home. The Charente (Department 16) is mainly agriculture. The area is famous for its Pineau, a fortified wine used as an aperitif.
