Beautiful watermill always in the need of a touch up.
We have a great property in the French countryside, 30mins from the beach. Very peaceful and ressourceful.
We run a gite complex with 6 cottages (which sleep between 4 to 15 people), big garden with trees, games and swimming-pool.
It's best to have a car to get out and about a bit, but there is plenty to do here and we can arrange to collect from train station.
We are looking for help with IT skills, plumbing, electrics, gardening, painting, clearing/tidying up, cooking, ironing, plasterboarding, tiling, website updating, building a compost station and composting toilets...
Must be fit, as we live on the top floor of the mill ! We have one spare bedroom. A shared big bathroom (bath, shower and 2 bassins), a separate toilet also to share.
We have 2 friendly cats, Paprika and Atlas and have just got some chickens !
Thanks
Alyssa (27) & Nicolas (29)

Helpers wanted 2017/18.

We are a British couple Bill & Lin and live in the beautiful Poitou Charente region of France, with our dog. We accept helpers for a week or two at a time.
Bill is a retired plumber and we are renovating an old stone house and barn in a small, quiet, rural hamlet in the beautiful Vienne, close to Lusignan, south west France.

We are about 30 minutes from Poitiers, futuroscope,Saint Maixent and Melle there are plenty of monuments, churches etc within a short drive.

Extra pairs of hands to help out would be great. Most has been done, but there is still a little to do. We accept enthusiastic or experienced helpers.
There are some uploaded photos of before and after.

If you would like to help out then why not contact us.

We enjoy meeting people and having a laugh,
sitting relaxing with a glass of wine or a beer in the evening discussing the day and putting the world to right.

we offer a room with super king size bed and private shower roo... more inside

We are living, for 8 years, close to the nice village of Argenton les Vallees, in an old hostel (17th century) on an ancient way to St-Jacques of Compostelle.
