I need a handyman/woman and some to help with my small but rampant garden.

We live in a large property in rural Normandy, in a small village opposite a medieval church. William the Conqueror used to have a chateau here but it has long gone now.

We are Mum, Scarlett 26, Morgan 21 and Oliver 19. The kids are away working or at uni most of the time.

We have a small project teaching English as a foreign language to students which is very rewarding.

Everyone, family and helpers, join in with the cleaning and washing up.

I need people who know how to paint walls and doors, (drip free), and people who are good at giving the place a jolly good deep clean.

We have a small garden that needs constant attention. Everything grows like crazy here. We need people who know the difference between a plant and a weed.

We are fun and easy going and treat our helpers as part of the family.

We are not far from the golden beaches at Granville/Carrols, (surfing).

We are 30 m... more inside

A beautiful chateau overlooking a national park that is run by Paul & Zoe who have 2 children aged 16 & 19 years. We have a large gite which sleeps 8 people, 2 gypsy caravans and a camp site for 25 tents. We always need help to set up the camp site pre-season so jobs include alot of cleaning, gardening, mowing, fence repairing, caring for animals - the list goes on and on.

We would prefer a couple who have initiative and good work ethics. The accommodation provided is in the chateau. You would have your own bedroom and bathroom. We love to eat and always prepare fresh food every day. People who eat everything are welcomed!

Our nearest train station is 12km away and the direct line to Paris which is 2hours. We have bikes to go exploring on.

30 hours a week which can be taken to suit the couples needs. We have had lots of people help us over the years which has always been a positive experience and we really look forward to welcoming new people to our home.

House Sitting in Normandy

We are looking for help from mid August.

We are a bilingual French/English family with 4 kids (12, 11,11, 8). Since 2010 we have had over 50 helpers, with quite a few staying for over a year (and some over 2) which has been fabulous.

This stay would really suit a couple or 2 friends, so that you have company as we are out all day and away pretty regularly. Or someone happy with their own company, and good at visiting by themselves. We do our best to insure that if you need a car then there is one available.

The principal reason we are currently looking for helpers is for when we will be away quite a lot and need someone to help look after the animals (sheep, horses, dogs, cats, duck and chickens and occasionally need help with our holiday rental - mostly doing the meet and greets, and some gardening etc.

We are in a great location for visiting Normandy - Mont St Michel , Bayeux tapestry and the D-Day beaches in the other and close to Caen,... more inside

Hello,
If you want to know life in a place of great tranquility of the countryside, on a moyennageux site, I give you an appointment here.
We are looking for motivated people who want to live an adventure out of time. Here we love nature, ancient architecture, calm; we are good cooks, rather artists and during the spring months we face in the grass and brambles that grow too fast for us! We need valiant arms to manipulate mower and débrouissailleuse on a large lot and the towers of the old castle in ruins!
So if you think you fit this profile, for 2, 3 or 4 weeks, and you speak a little French and want to talk more after, come see us !!! Those who have been there have been bad to leave .....
See you soon!
