We are an English couple who moved to France 4 years ago because we wanted a different lifestyle to bring up our young children. Our house is still being renovated and therefore is not the smartest place, with building materials all over the place and half started projects surrounding us. We have just less than 2 hectares which comprises the house, orchard area, vegetable garden, fields and lake. Much of this is overgrown and we are gradually clearly, replanting and developing. Please note, we live in a small village, with no amenities close by.

Although we were both experienced with renovating houses in the UK we didnít anticipate how much having children would impact on our ability to get things done and have therefore not moved forward as fast as we expected.

We are smokers, although not in the house and we eat mostly meat orientated meals although are happy to try vegetarian meals occasionally.

My horticulture and market-gardening is situated in the most southern part of France still in the plains just at the foot of the Pyrenees. You'll live in a mobile-home (equipped with all comfort: fridge, shower, tv, internet etc.) at a place in nature with a magnificent view at the Mount Canigou. You can easily reach any destination by train or bus. I grow vegetables and flowers, I have chickens, greenhouses, orchards and open fields, and sell on markets. I'd like help with all parts of my work, 5 days per week, 6 hours per day. I am a German woman, speaking also good French and not so bad English.

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
